The Women's Backcountry Series

THE WOMEN’S BACKCOUNTRY SERIES is a program designed to provide the wonderful women of Whistler with the knowledge, mentorship, and community support necessary to ski & splitboard safely in the backcountry. The WBS is presented by MOUNTAIN SKILLS ACADEMY, in partnership with THE ESCAPE ROUTE, and HUNTER GATHER.

The Women’s Backcountry Series is a community project and as such, it will rely on the dedication, generosity, and stoke of the community to make it happen. What I’m trying to say is that THIS IS YOUR PLACE. This is a grassroots initiative to develop a community of women here in Whistler who believe that coming together can make us all stronger.
