British Columbia Backcountry Skiing
British Columbia may very well be the adventure capital of Canada, and when it comes to skiing, the province can’t be beat. Whistler Mountain is a household name, and children are raised on skis. Well, that may not be entirely true, but skiing is certainly a cherished pastime among many – if not most. When there’s lots of snow around, people know how to make the most of it.
Thanks to the province’s mountainous landscapes and plentiful national and provincial parks, there’s no shortage of ski opportunities. And whether you’re an experienced or inexperienced skier, a guided British Columbia backcountry skiing trip will open your eyes to whole new terrain you never even knew existed. You can rest assured you’re in safe hands: all guides have a great deal of experience, are certified, and are avid skiers themselves.
If you’re already familiar with Whistler and would like to get “off the beaten trail,” you can hop on a backcountry tour to discover some new and fabulous routes. Opting for a private guide, you can also learn about avalanche safety and other valuable winter skills. If you’re a more experienced skier, you can hit the super steep slopes in a steep ski clinic. You’ll be placed in small groups with people on your skill level, and experienced instructors will assess your techniques. This one’s for the serious skier only!
Be sure to book yourself some time around the Whistler around before and after your backcountry trip. Whistler is famous for a reason, and even when the skiing’s done, you’ll find yourself languishing in the fantastic food and nightlife scene. Play hard, party harder!Read More ...
