Experience epic backcountry skiing and splitboarding in Whistler, Pemberton, and Squamish, BC.
Get your first taste of the backcountry with a professional Mountain Skills Academy guide who can show you the basics. Tour out of the resort and into the Whistler Blackcomb backcountry for the freshest lines.
Book a guided backcountry ski tour, explore the stunning Duffey Lake area, a Spearhead Traverse, an overnight hut trip, or start your tour day with a heli-drop. We’ll take you to ‘the goods!’
No backcountry experience is required but you should be confident riding off-piste on ungroomed intermediate runs.
