The goal for this group is provide a friendly environment for organizing backcountry skiing trips.

All levels of skiers are welcome, although in order to participate at any events, you MUST have at least AST 1 avalanche training+1 year of experience AFTER you got your AST1 and the required avalanche safety gear: no exceptions allowed!

If you are new to this sport you might want to join first ACC or BCMC, then when you are confident enough you can come back here: all the trips require that you are able to decide for yourself the best route and evaluate AVI conditions. None of the trips are guided per say, we are just a group of like-minded people who help each other. 

In respect of your technical abilities it is expected of you to be able to ski any type of black runs from Whistler, for example.

Our day trips usually range fromto 9h of touring, so you must be in good physical condition:)

Here is a sample from our past trips:

Manning Park-Frosty Mtn

Puma South Peak from Whistler Olympic Park

Mt Sproatt

Metal Dome

Gin Peak via Hanging Lake

Cayoosh Glacier

Mt Taylor

Brew Hut-overnight trip
