Join Michael, an AMGA certified guide on this day-long splitboarding adventure in Whistler! He will be sure to introduce you to all of the introductory skills required to enjoy the slopes of British Columbia.
Have you always been interested in splitboarding but have yet to learn? Then join me on this day-long introductory splitboarding trip in Whistler!
Whistler–located in British Columbia–is the largest ski resort in North America. Given the area’s large size, there are many possible routes we can go explore on this introductory trip. More still, Whistler is an amazing place to get accustomed to snow sports, and the goal of this program is to make you as comfortable with the sport as possible.
Once out in the beautiful mountains I will also teach you more about the gear and terrain that you will be exploring as a splitboarder. I will also give you tips to improve at splitboarding and teach you the techniques to keep you as safe as possible. Knowing these basics will also set you up well to get the most out of the slopes.
Request to book this trip if you are interested in learning to splitboard in one of the most frontier places to do so!
Gear required: Touring skis or Splitboard & Avalanche Safety Gear (Demo gear available, subject to availability)
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.
