The Freshfields are a hushed touring zone in the Canadian Rockies, legendary for their looming peaks and late-season snowpacks. Located north of Golden, BC on the border of Banff National Park, the Freshfields are one of the largest glacial systems in Western Canada and sit below a crown jewel selection of jagged 10,000 to 11,000-foot peaks. Last spring, Eddie Bauer splitboarders Scott Newsome, Chris Coulter and Wyatt Caldwell linked up with ACMG guide Trevor Gavura to tick off a serious mountaineering mission in this remote zone.
In Part One, after heli-dropping in close Crown Land proximity to the zone, the team set up glacial base camp on the Alberta/BC border of the National Park then wait out a massive spring storm in Pantheon Dome style with expedition grilling, snow structure building and plenty of shoveling.
Watch Part Two as the crew deals with maintaining their camp as they wait out the storm.
Watch Part Three as Chris, Wyatt, and Scott finally get the goods.
