Description

Whistler is a must if you want to get to know Canada’s best slopes. This world renown resort in the beautiful Coast Mountains is perfect for one or more days of backcountry ski touring. 

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.

We can leave for one or more days. There is certainly a lot to explore in Whistler-Blackcomb, so don’t hesitate to plan with me several days to reach the best remote spots. Or if you prefer to spend most of your days skiing at the resort, still make sure you go backcountry skiing for at least a day, as it is a completely different experience.

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.

Tempted to explore Whistler backcountry on your skis? Then please request to book this trip and let’s start the adventure! If you are up for a challenge, have a look at this Mount Logan ski mountaineering expedition.
