Whistler has become synonymous with unforgettable ski vacations, ranging from classic resort runs to the accessible off-piste terrain. With the 2010 Winter Olympics as part of its resume, it is now one of the premiere locations for unparalleled winter sports. Thanks to its proximity to Vancouver, travelers from far and wide can access its slopes and easily find the perfect backcountry extravaganza.
Your program puts you in the center of this winter wonderland. Whistler Blackcomb has a high volume of spectacular runs with glaciers, steep ridges, alpine bowls, and so much more. The most satisfying feature of your backcountry tour is the snow. The powder around Whistler Blackcomb is arguably some of the best in the world, and to ski it is an amazing experience.
I take pride in sharing my expertise with my guests. You can expect to learn a thing or two about snowpack, avalanche formation and safety, and an overall appreciation for top quality powder. The area is a great place to learn about managing weather and mountain conditions, all within the exciting fun of a unique backcountry skiing experience.
There are routes and runs for every level of backcountry skier, with classics like the Spearhead Traverse available for the most ambitious adventurers. The immense skiable region between Whistler and Blackcomb stretches well outside of the resort, so we will never run out of steep lines with pristine powder waiting to be discovered.
My goal is to give you a rewarding and satisfying trip that you will take with you long after leaving the mountain. You should have a general physical fitness and be prepared to handle a trip into the backcountry. A proficiency in off-piste skiing is necessary, though there are different levels and runs for every stripe of ski tourist.
Book this amazing ski touring program NOW and spend a day – or more! – in the delightfully perfect powder of Whistler and Canada’s Coast Mountains!
We can also take a few days ski touring around Duffy Lake to get even further away from the crowds!

Whistler is our home ski hill and the backcountry skiing around the Coast Range is a great place for novices and experts alike. With some of the best rock climbing on the planet as well as a host of peaks in remote wilderness settings, there are literally infinite possibilities. I am an IFMGA Licensed Mountain Guide working in all disciplines and look forward to sharing some mountain adventures with you soon.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
