Basecamp Location - Athelney Pass
Athelney Pass is a mystical place and undeservingly less-reputated location situated north of Pemberton in the Upper Lillooet Region bordering the Lillooet Icefields. It sports a number of classic ski mountaineeing objectives, amazing descents and a variety of terrain. Including gladed skiing.
This location falls under our Tier 3- South Coast Locations ($2400 CAD per person). Our camp will be established in the broad Athelney Pass with a multitude of ski descents and mountaineering objectives at our doorstep.
Possible summits include:
- Mount Guthrum (2695m)
- Mount Icemaker (2735m)
- Mount Salal (2530m)
- Mount Ochre (2530m)
- Mount Fasp (2495m)
And various other summits.
Our basecamp is placed high at 1800m, with 600-800m runs on all sides! One of our favourite runs descends 1000m from the summit of Icemaker peak right into camp down a fabulous glacier.
This location is best March-April and well into May.
