We continued navigating the unmaintained road by sled before making our final stop to soak it all in at the marked view point. Engulfed by glaciers and peaks in all directions, it was impossible not to feel humbled by this immense landscape. In silence, we attempted to soak it all in before vocalizing just how incredible this place really is.
Craving another view point and some powder turns, a few of us skinned up to a few lines above the view point and relived another moment of awe. Light, cold snow filled our faces turn after turn and we were smitten. Stewart exceeded all our expectations. We were only convinced to head down when the sunlight started to slip.
Our trip to Stewart was short and sweet, but the visit has left us with a hankering for more. The journey to Stewart and the experiences all around it, surrounded by mountains and glaciers, were unforgettable and we can’t wait to do it all over again.
We were only able to peek at the potential experiences here in the Kitimat-Stikine region of B.C. that few get to explore. It's home to more than 100,000 square kilometres of mountains, rivers and ancient Indigenous sites and settlements.
