Backcountry powder skiing or boarding near Whistler, BC by snowcat


Avoid the lift lines of Whistler and ski untracked powder high in the Coast Mountains on these snowcat skiing or boarding day tours. A snow cat trip is a must add-on to your next skiing or snowboarding trip to Whistler. Located 20 minutes south of Whistler, a warm and comfortable Bombardier snowcat will transport you high up into the virgin powder for an unforgettable day of skiing or boarding. You will ski 7000-10000 vertical feet per day on 6-8 runs of untracked snow.  Certified guides insure your safety and the snowcat provides reliable and comfortable transportation up the hill. This tour is sure to provide the best skiing of your life!

The Tricouni area typically receives 20% more snowfall on average than Whistler/Blackcomb. The average snowfall is approximately 11 meters / 432 inches / 36 feet per year.  This is the most accessible backcountry powder skiing and snowboarding in Whistler, BC. Your guides are young at heart and very excited to show off the beautiful British Columbia backyard to new people.  No lift lines, epic powder all day, great atmosphere, and the best 'bang for your buck'. A great skiing adventure.

GUIDE INFORMATION

Guides are experienced and certified. Your safety is their prime concern. They constantly monitor snow and weather conditions throughout the day so you can be as safe as possible in the backcountry. Everyone wears a transceiver and is trained to use it during our safety orientation session.

RESTRICTIONS

Snowcat Skiing is enjoyed by both first-timers to backcountry powder skiing as well as seasoned powder veterans. Generally an 'intermediate' level of skiing is necessary.  Skiers and snowboarders should have strong intermediate skiing ability with experience in a variety of conditions including powder, trees, and steep terrain.

Snowcat skiing is unlike a resort style ski area. There are no maintained runs or grooming and the snow is often deep. Much of the area is similar to an un-groomed Black Diamond. Snowcat Skiing is a backcountry experience. Snow can very from fluff to corn and everything in between.  Your guides try and match the groups ability level to the terrain. At the very least, you should be comfortable with a good blue/easy black run.
