Extremely Canadian offers Avalanche gear to borrow for the day as well as split board/skis when they're available. I however rented my split board as the ones they had were a... More

Hi Afton - so glad that you had a good experience on your intro to Backcountry Adventure. At our ops meeting last week, we had a discussion about the packs and the needs of the guests. It's on our radar. But thanks for the helpful feedback. We look forward to riding with you again soon. Best - Jill. More

The steep skiing clinic I took with Extremely Canadian last week was one of the best things I've ever done in Whistler. This is a world-class operation and their guides are absolute pros. The overall experience was, indeed, a true adventure. There is no set itinerary. The groups are very small -- there were only three of us. Our guide,... More

I did the Intro to backcountry tour with Tristen on Jan 7th 2016. It was absolutely awesome!!! The booking process was simple (booked the day before), I borrowed a splitboard and all the backcountry gear needed for the day and it was all top notch I would 100% recommend any of these tours and the company, Tristen was a legend...

We've just come back from a fab holiday in Whistler, but the highlight was definitely the Steeps course with Extremely Canadian (alright, and Cows ice cream). We did a 2-day course last March with Steve Clarke and were super happy to go out skiing again with him this time. We also skied a bit with Jen and Sophie who were... More

I haven't been pushed beyond my personal boundaries for such a long time. I joined the 2 day tour/ course skiing the steeps and it was fantastic.

The extremely Canadian crew are awesome. They are well organised and really look after their clientele. They matched people well into groups of abiliity and coached enough through the day so that you could really see a change in your skiing. The downhill is very steep and deep but i was not overfaced. Go for it! You will love it.... More

This is the second time that I have taken Extremely Canadian. The Wednesday class coincided perfectly with my short trip. I skied with Jill and her enthusiasm for skiing, the mountain, and EC is contageous! I learned three great tips that I practiced today, and it is a noticeable improvement. The guides at EC know all of the spots you... More

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
