Whistler almost needs no introduction such is its world renowned reputation for steep peaks, stunning glaciers and high quality off piste tracts.

Set in the Coast Mountain Range in British Colombia around 125km north of Vancouver, the Whistler region provides a truly epic setting and first class conditions.

This classic ski tour ‘The Spearhead Traverse’ follows Fitzsimmons range behind the Whistler Blackcomb area, covering about 35km and 13 glaciers on route.

This rugged and spectacular trip takes place within the Garibaldi Provincial Park. Whilst making our way through endless powder snow, we will remain consistently elevated above 2000m.

Traditionally we start at the lifts on Blackcomb Mountain and finish by cruising down the ski runs on Whistler Mountain.

We will enjoy really spectacular views over valleys and glaciers throughout the trip, even as far as Washington’s Mount Baker.

Considered a right of passage for those in Whistler looking to do their first multi-day traverse, this is the ideal trip to perfect skills in glacier conditions.

You can practice finding and navigation, terrain management and avalanche awareness and prevention.

This is remote and wild terrain and we require that participants have at least an intermediate ski or boarding level.

We plan our trips down to the finest detail and manage your safety as a priority. This is a fantastic way to start multi-day ski expeditions or as an exhilarating venture into the wilds of Whistler with a great crew.

About the Guide

 
 

The best day of skiing that you have ever had. That is my aim. I know how special the perfect powder day can be for a group of friends who may only see each other on the annual ski trip. So I'm in the business of the best day ever.
Whether it is floating in endless powder or the rhythmic procession of turn after turn after turn unfolding beneath you, I deliver unforgettable ski experiences. Finding the perfect balance between safety and exhilaration, I match the challenge with your skill and connect with my clients. Knowing and trusting your guide defines the skiing as much as the snow. One thing that sets my guiding activities apart is my focus on the finer details of my clients’ experiences. I want to ski with you year after year and can do so around the world, always bringing it on to make your ski holidays unforgettable.
Based in Canada’s Coast Range, close to Whistler, I have a number of local sweet spots that I like to share. I have skied and guided throughout Canada’s most spectacular terrain as well as around the globe. Fully certified through the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association, I have safety and high bar professionalism covered.
Come join me for your next ski adventure….
