Derek from Extremely Canadian was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, only pushing me just enough and providing invaluable tips to get me down the steeps safely. By the end of the two day clinic I was skiing with so much more confidence and ready to tackle more. Thanks guys, you do an awesome job with a great balance of tuition and... More

I went on an awesome backcountry tour with Extremely Canadian. Simon, our guide, was knowledgeable and took us to some great slopes to ski down even on a pretty horrible day. Be aware though its a physically taxing day - get fit first to make the most of it!

Got a group of Snowboarders together to do a 1 day Steeps Clinic and had THE most amazing time. We got lucky with tons of snow the night before and our instructor made the most of it, taking us to loads of random hidden spots with fresh powder, even into late afternoon. Just the right mix of giving us tips... More

We got a group together and tried the snowboarding clinic. Our instructor Dahj was excellent, gave us the confidence to try things we'd never done before. Found us some amazing powder on the mountain and gave us some feedback on our riding technique and things to work on. He knew the mountain so well and exactly where to go, gave... More

I am a pretty normal level 5-6 skier, who likes going off-piste and doing more challenging runs, without trying to kill myself. With some nervousness, I booked a 2-day steeps clinic with the goal of skiing a double-black, any one, at Whistler. I got Chad as my instructor and was assigned in a group of 4 people of similar ability.... More

I have had the opportunity to go out for private single day lessons in the past, this year I committed to the 3 day steep camp. I have never been more impressed by their guides, a seamless blend of instructor, mentor, coach and psychologist. I like to think that I am a strong skier, I ski 80-100 days a year,... More

Absolutely awesome. I moved to Whistler recently and wanted an opportunity to better familiarize myself with some lesser-known runs and to work on my powder skiing. The two days did just that and more, really exceeding my expectations. My coach had lived in Whistler for 23 years and took us to the most amazing hidden caches of powder! His incredible... More

My Extremely Canadian experience was a ski explorer's dream. I met like-minded individuals who wanted to explore the mountain for great snow and fun features just like myself. Our small group of four encouraged one another to try things outside of our comfort zone while our guide provided essential tips of how to be successful in our endeavours. I truly... More

I recently did my Backcountry Avalanche awareness course or AST1 through Extremely Canadian and couldn't be happier with my decision! It's crazy how much you don't know that you don't know until you take it. At first I was a little unsure. I'm not very experienced in the backcountry but our guides put me at ease. They were knowledgable, friendly... More
