We ask our allies to allow BIPoC members to register for this event. Thank you!
Ski Event Dates/Time: Sunday, February 27 and Saturday, March 5. 8:15AM to last chair. Must be able to attend both days!
You will discover both the best of Whistler Blackcomb’s insane steeps and the best of your skills. Extremely Canadian’s dedicated coaches mix a healthy dose of technical instruction, steep skiing tactics and local knowledge to provide you with an experience you can’t get elsewhere. After two unreal days with Extremely Canadian you should be charging confidently down terrain with skills you didn’t even know you had.
The trick to taking advantage of Whistler Blackcomb is making the most of the mind-blowing terrain available, and that’s where Extremely Canadian comes in. Pack their 20 years of local freeskiing experience into 2 days of instruction and exploration and you’re in for a wild ride.
Extremely Canadian is geared towards adventurous advanced-intermediate to expert skiers. If you can ski an un-groomed “Black Diamond” run at your home hill, then this event is for you! Skiers will be in a small group of similar ability. Combine that with a serious amount of vertical, guaranteed improvement, tired legs, it makes for an unforgettable ski experience. Ages 18+
