Backcountry skier (Picture BC photo)
Whistler is world-renowned for lift-access skiing, but backcountry skiing in Whistler uncovers some of the best terrain.
Whistler's backcountry is a paradise of high alpine terrain: glaciers, frozen lakes and rivers, ridges, wide-open bowls, gladed valleys and epic snowfalls. The snow here is more than deep – it's consistent. In winter, Whistler averages more than 16 snow days a month! Popular backcountry routes include the Spearhead Traverse and the Neve Traverse.
Looking to do an overnight trip? There are more than a dozen backcountry lodges and huts to choose from, along with backcountry ski guides and courses in backcountry skills and avalanche training.
