Explore the most famous backcountry in Canada on your skis. Brian, a local certified guide, will show you all the best spots.
Whistler is a must if you want to discover the best skiing in Canada. This world renowned resort in the beautiful Coast Mountains is perfect for one or more days of backcountry skiing.
The extremely varied terrain ensures that there are options for all tastes and levels. And the snowy environment in this Canadian destination is truly stunning, so you will enjoy the views as well as the runs!
We will skin up, enjoying the wonderful surroundings, and then I will guide you down the best slopes in each area: from short classics like the DOA and the Husume to long traverses like the Spearhead.
We will spend a typical backcountry ski day leaving our marks on the glaciers and in the backcountry of the Garibaldi Provincial Park, right next to the resort. The skiing days usually end around 4PM, but in the late winter or spring we can arrange to make longer day tours.
No prior backcountry ski experience is needed, but you do need to be in good physical shape to join. I will decide the exact itinerary depending on the level of the group and the weather conditions.

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.
Well experienced Guide ( Brian ), very nice trip in Garibaldi
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.
We had a good time and the guide we had was both professional and patient. Thanks
