    Enjoy the ultimate 2 days ski touring traverse in British Columbia, which connects Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, with the unforgettable adventure of sleeping under the stars!

    We’ll cover 25km of breathtaking backcountry scenery, in this overnight adventure with incredible skiing terrain.

    Connecting Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, the Spearhead Traverse takes us across glaciers, mountain cols and we’ll go down life-changing slopes. A fantastic excursion in the Coast Mountains that you’ll never forget!

    The expertise of the guide is important in this program, to advice and share the experience for glacier travel, technical steep skiing and overnight winter camping. The program is ideal to strengthen a huge variety of skiing skills!

    It’s better if you already have previous experience in overnight camping and ski toruing, but it isn’t mandatory. Always subject to weather, the best season to do the Spearhead ski traverse is from mid-March to May.

    The standard trip is of 2 days, 1 night. But upon request, the trip can be customized and organized for two, three or even four nights. The skiing terrain in Whistler is almost infinite!

      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.
