What to Expect

Enjoy awesome backcountry skiing or splitboarding near the Whistler Blackcomb ski area with the safety of a professional, local guide. Start the morning on the gondola to access the backcountry, then leave those lift lines behind. Fresh powder and gorgeous views are within your reach! This is a must-do activity on your Whistler vacation!



The day starts by riding the gondola up the mountain. From there we ski or ride and begin skinning out to the backcountry. Then we spend the day touring with short breaks for water and food.
