Join Michael, an AMGA certified guide on this 2 day guided splitboarding tour in Whistler! On this trip, you will discover some of the most beautiful slopes in British Columbia.
Come enjoy 2 great days of splitboarding in British Columbia! On this traverse we will move from the mountains of Blackcomb to Whistler, enjoying some wonderful nights sleeping beneath stars.
The Spearhead traverse takes us through 25 kilometers of backcountry, and connects the dots between the mountains of Blackcomb to Whistler. On this traverse we will amble across glaciers in order to get to breathtaking slopes in the Coast Mountains.
As your guide I will make sure to give you all of the tips necessary to enjoy your experience on the glacier, as well as the basics of splitboarding down steep slopes. And I will also be sure to go over the fundamentals of overnight camping in snowy hillsides.
This program is a great choice for people looking to strengthen their splitboarding skills but previous experience is not necessary. Nor is previous experience of overnight camping mandatory. Due to the weather, this trip is available during the Spring months.
I offer this trip for 1 night and 2 days, but this trip can be tailored for a period lasting up to 4 nights, should that be of interest to you. There are many routes to explore in Whistler, which is why we offer this option.
Request to book this trip if you have always wanted to splitboard and camp in Whistler!
Gear to bring: – Sleeping Bag – Headlamp – Backpack – Sleeping Pad – Lunch and snacks – Lift Tickets – Personal Care kit
I've been guiding professionally for thirteen years. I lead trips all over the globe including the Seven Summits, and many of the other climbs. My passion for guiding is fueled by the opportunity to help new or experienced climbers improve, succeed and have fun while being safe in the mountains!
In 2011 by summiting Mt. Everest and Lhotse I became the first person in the world to summit two 8000 meter peaks in one day. I feel incredibly fortunate for the support, weather and opportunity that conspired to make that accomplishment possible. I am constantly inspired and excited to guide climbers anywhere from our basic courses to the Seven Summits. I am a certified Wilderness First Responder and Level II Avalanche professional. I am currently working towards American Mountain Guides Association Certification as a ski, rock and alpine guide. When not working I can be found at home in Squamish, British Columbia or traveling to remote parts of the world with my lovely wife and son.
