Description

Mt. Bourgeau is north of the Sunshine ski area, and is home to two cleverly named, classic ice routes, Bourgeau Right-Hand, and Bourgeau Left-Hand. Both of these routes are on the south side of the mountain and as such, are susceptible to sun affect. There are also acres of avalanche terrain above both routes, so be aware of conditions. The south side of the mountain is occasionally bombed for avalanche control as it threatens the road to Sunshine.

Getting There

The South side of the mountain is easily accessed by driving just a few miles north of Banff and Sunshine ski area exit. Park in the ski area parking lot.
