    When it comes to skiing in Canada, the first place most people think of is Whistler. It would be difficult to argue with the assumption because the Whistler area, specifically the Whistler Blackcomb resort area, offers some truly spectacular skiing opportunities.

    On this trip, I will be leading you along several different sidecountry routes. This will give you the chance to see a large portion of the Whistler Blackcomb area. And believe me when I tell you, the area is as beautiful as it is exciting, which is probably why it has hosted so many great events, including several events in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

    With great size comes great variety. You will get to choose from a long list of different spots: from long traverses like the Spearhead traverse and the Mcbride traverse to some classic descents like DOA and Husume. And if you’re into steeps, you’ll also find your money’s worth at Whistler.

    Not many places can actually live up to their lofty reputations. But Whistler does! If you want to experience it for yourself, just send me a request. I will be happy to guide you.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I grew up out in Eastern Canada ripping around the small mountains of Quebec and New England. After spending years ski racing and eventually freestyle skiing, I made the pilgrimage out to BC in 2006 and never looked back. My love for the mountains and backcountry grew and sharing this love became my main priority.

    My guiding career began in 2010 and I am a fully certified Ski Guide under the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG). I am also a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA). Come explore the mountains of British Columbia with me!
