Whistler is a Canadian town located in the British Columbia province, 125 km north of Vancouver. It is a popular ski destination with an international reputation. Many people visit it every year. Additionally, it is home of the famous Whistler Blackcomb ski resort.
This renowned skiing spot features the “Peak 2 Peak Gondola”, the world’s highest cable car, which connects two important mountains: Whistler and Blackcomb. Furthermore, through the years it has hosted many important alpine skiing events.
I would like to invite you to a ski touring day that will give us the chance to enjoy the best deep powder and tree skiing to glaciers and summits in the beautiful region of British Columbia. This area offers something for everyone. Consequently, I can adapt the program to fit the client’s objectives and goals.

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
Based in the Coast Range, near Vancouver, BC, I offer custom private ski touring adventures for any size of group. I can craft an experience suitable for your experience levels and goals. From single day introductory tours in the Whistler/Blackcomb backcountry, to multi-day tent-based traverses, to heli accessed ski mountaineering base camps, let me create the trip of a lifetime for you!
I have guided extensively throughout the mountain ranges of British Columbia and Alberta, for numerous heli, snowcat and ski touring operations.
I also work closely with a number of backcountry ski touring lodges across BC, including Whitecap Alpine. I can facilitate your lodge-based trip, including scheduling, logistics, transport, food and guiding (of course). There’s really nothing quite like a lodge ski trip with your closest friends, a great chef and plenty of powder to ski.
