Winter Terrain Atlas
The Winter Terrain Atlas provides valuable visual terrain information to backcountry users of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks. It is designed to provide a common language for place and run names and to assist with trip planning and rescue situations. The Winter Terrain Atlas also helps backcountry users identify Winter Permit Area boundaries.
It is important to check today's Avalanche Bulletin and the Winter Restricted Area Status to ensure your destination areas are open before heading into backcountry terrain. You will also need a daily or annual winter permit.
The Winter Terrain Atlas is available for download. At 190 pages, it is a comprehensive document, so we have provided several download options.
