I'd done an Extremely Canadian clinic around 15 years ago and loved it. Yet I distinctly remember it being very much about adrenalin-rush and the testosterone-fuelled pursuit of the hardest line. But now, at 44, whilst I still wanted to push myself on the steeps, I also wanted to focus more on improving my technique so I can still tackle... More

I ski 20+ days a year at Whistler/Blackcomb. I like to think I know the mountains pretty well but each time I go out with Extremely Canadian (six days thus far), I learn about new runs and find new snow. The steep clinics are top drawer. The back country clinics are great for visitors experienced in ski touring and for... More

I did the AST 1 course with Tim and Mitch as the guides. Found the course to be very thorough and well run! After speaking to others who has taken their course with other companies, it certainly sounds like I got the best training for an AST1 course! I highly recommend these guys as they are really knowledgeable, and their... More

Awesome day spent learning how to tackle gnarly tree runs and steep off-piste terrain. Highly recommend it to anyone! A shame the alpine wasn't open, but overall great day skiing with the friendliest instructors! two thumbs up!

If you are looking to do some serious off-piste in Whistler then go with EC. The guides are first rate and very knowledgeable. The pricing is more than reasonable. Thoroughly recommend.

I love the Extremely Canadian Steeps Clinic. I've done it twice, once last season and then again just a few weeks ago. The guides are AMAZING. They're all true locals, and know so many secret stashes that you would probably never even think to go. They all love skiing and Whistler Blackcomb and it really shows. They're also pretty good...

I did 5 days off piste skiing with them. Two 2 day courses and an extra day on my own. Great bunch of guys, really enjoyable. They start off with a quick test to establish your ability and group and then off you go. My largest group was 4 people. Even though the snow was terrible they did find some... More

This is a MUST DO when I visit Whistler,the first time I wanted to improve my skiing and open up more of the mountain, after that first experience I keep coming back to learn and explore more. The coaches are the best, been there and done that but their easy going approach makes it a relaxed 2 days, in small... More

I took the 2.5 day AST 1 course with Extremely Canadian Jan 9-11, 2015. It was excellent. The information was well presented and very interesting. I'm an avid backcountry user that felt the need for some certification. The guides were very organized and the days were fun. I will be signing up for the upcoming AST 2 with Extremely Canadian....
