Newfoundland and Labrador offers some of the best backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and snowkiting east of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Weather you are a beginner skier looking for some introductory off-piste action or a seasoned pro looking for some steep and deep powder, Newfoundland and Labrador has something for everyone.
Some of you have written into the Martin Hanzalek blog wondering how it is possible for a backcountry skier to ski uphill. Maybe you have only skied or snowboarded in a resort setting and are wondering what makes traditional downhill ski gear different from apline ski touring and telemark equipment. This short video clip of me skiing in the Tableland Mountains in Gros Morne National Park should help answer some of your questions
