The Complete Columbias Traverse

The Complete Columbias Traverse is a 750 km long ski traverse through the Columbia Mountains.

The traverse combines five of Chic Scott’s Grand Traverses, linking the Purcells, Selkirks, Monashees and Cariboos. It was first attempted in 1998 by Dan Clark and Chris Gooliaff, who skied from McBride to Kimberley over a period of 61 days. The route has yet to be completed in its entirety
