Type of Trip
Backcountry skiing gives you the possibility to enjoy a whole new world of possibilities away from the pistes and in many remote areas. Whistler is a great area for you to get started in this skiing discipline, and that is what this program aims for.
Whistler/Blackcomb’s has untracked backcountry ski & snowboard terrain into every direction you may look at. While enjoying the beautiful landscapes of the Coast Mountains, we will show and teach you the gear, terrain, and lifestyle of a backcountry skier/snowboarder. An adventure you’ll want for repeat, and for sure you’ll not soon forget.
During a full day of fantastic guided backcountry skiing, I’ll share with you my experience and the tactics to improve your skiing, the techniques to boost your safety knowledge, and all the necessary information and practical tips to strengthen your awareness in big mountain terrain.
Take your skiing skills to a whole new level, get out of the resorts, and be welcomed to the vast world of backcountry skiing in Whistler. Contact me to start this adventure!

About the Guide
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.
