We set out to teach adventurous skiers how to attack the steeps with more confidence and control, but revolutionized ski instruction while we were at it; bringing clients to places & doing things that a traditional ski school wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole.
We could talk about the massive acreage our guides know inside and out, or the insane terrain we will navigate through, but the real story here is how much we will change your passion for the sport of skiing.
Mandatory Attendance for Experienced Skiers visiting Whistler. If you think you’re a good skier this group will put that to the test, in a good way. For me it was initially very humbling, but under their guidance I quickly gained skills needed and was a much better skier after a couple days with them. During that time we navigated the mountain like a pack of ninjas, skillfully selecting the lines appropriate for our group while pushing everybody’s comfort zone just a little bit.
Wish I had found the entire Extremely Canadian team a long time ago. I never had the confidence to ski steep terrain, but with the expert coaching to figure out which technique to use to attack different steeps, I was launched into the next level of skiing. Will definitely explore more of their programs.
Having never skied the mountain, spending the day with someone familiar with the local terrain was a must. Our guides, however went far beyond just showing us around. They each provided helpful tips and chose great runs for the whole group to ski. For any advanced skier visiting, this program is a must do. I have skied with instructors before, but never anyone with skills and knowledge like this.
