Whistler Backcountry Couloir Sking

Ahhhh sweet whistler... I love this place. Leave town at 10, Ski 3 awesome couloirs, hang out in wild mountains and be back in time to catch the afternoon sun at home. Made this video yesterday of skiing the Cham Chutes and the chisel... we also skied some other stuff but had gotten sick of wearing this dorky helmet cam.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort Backcountry Skiing

Recently was contracted out by the Revelstoke Mountain Resort to guide a day of backcountry touring off the hill. It had been a few years since i explored the resort and i will admit what i had stuck in my head was that it with out question was no match to the Mighty Whistler. But after 2 excellent lattes and a couple croissants at the conveniently located coffee shop at the foot of the lifts i was starting to believe this might just be a more frequent destination for me.
Off the Gondola you glide past limitless ski options that with out question would fulfill years!! Our gang of 9 skiers from Quebec plus 2 other guides – Angus Willson and Pete Murry we managed to bag 3 excellent high alpine runs. Absolutely a stellar day. Finished up with a few stellar pints back at the hill base. Seriously worth a visit.
