Ymir Lodge Ski Touring and Avalanche Skills Week, British Columbia

This week with Brent at the Ymir Lodge was an unforgettable experience. We learned a lot inside the "classroom" and outside on the slopes. We were able to explore the mountain with the new information and test our decision-making in a guided setting. Brent did an amazing job making sure we were fed, stimulated, and safe. His tracks were complimented throughout the week and he really proved his ability to navigate through the terrain when he guided us, on our request, back to civilization instead of taking the helicopter back.

Our guide was Tim Ross not Brian Jones. Day was great and Tim was very personal and taught us a lot about backcountry skiing. He tailored the day to our abilities and was very patient. Great experience.

We actually had a different guide (Les) but couldnt have been more impressed. He was super knowledgeable and helpful. Very patient and his timing for our day was excellent. Whistler is of course beautiful and it was a wonderful introduction to the back country.
