Looking for the ultimate backcountry purist

The Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia Association (BLBCA) is pleased to announce the launch of its first-ever Backcountry Purist Contest. The BLBCA is seeking the ultimate Backcountry Purist; a skier/snowboarder who deserves a fully guided and catered ski/snowboard four-week purely blissful snow extravaganza to four BLBCA backcountry lodges during the winter of 2013.

“The Backcountry Purist is someone that loves storytelling and sharing the tales of their backcountry ski/snowboard quests.” said Brad Harrison, BLBCA’s executive director. “They are an adventurist with a creative side and enjoy video-making and photography. They epitomise pure backcountry.”
