Come explore the vast backcountry at Whistler and Blackcomb on a ski touring program in western Canada! See the unmatched glory of the Coast Mountains in British Columbia while skiing through some of the world famous powder of this one-of-a-kind region!

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!

About the Guide

 
 

I live in Squamish, BC surrounded by mountains that offer adventures for people of all abilities. 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.

As an Active Member of the Canadian Avalanche Association as well as the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education, I also teach CAA AST avalanche courses as well as AIARE Level 1 courses in the States. I'm a Millet-USA Athlete and do a bit of writing and photography in my free time. I have many passions but my primary two are to enjoy the mountains each day and guide you to remarkable places full of stunning experiences.
