For all those snowboarders who have been jealous of their two-planked comrades dominating the mountain with their Steep Skiing Guides, we are now here for you. Our professional team of snowboard coaches is going to ensure you maximize your experience on Whistler Blackcomb’s world-class, big-mountain terrain. Alpine bowls and glaciers, old-growth forests, and legendary winter storms make our home a global freeride mecca, and we want all of our guests to experience this in an exciting, safe, and confidence-inspiring way.
With two massive mountains, each providing an overwhelming variety of terrain to explore, it’s easy to spend your day searching for the goods instead of getting out there to shred them. Don’t get caught chasing crowds on cat tracks, getting stuck on long traverses, tip-toeing around cliff signs and ropes, or riding other people’s leftovers—let us show you the way.
With years of experience exploring North America’s largest and most epic ski area, our coaches can help you find those runs and hidden lines you only thought you’d see in the movies. With lift line priority to maximize riding time, we will teach you the best techniques, show you incredible new lines, and guide you to the best snow, making the most of your precious days in the mountains. Whether you’re looking to step up to steeper terrain, flow through the forest, charge a pillow field, or simply ride with confidence on the best that Whistler-Blackcomb has to offer, these camps are for you.

PAYMENT & CONFIRMATION
All rates are quoted in Canadian currency and are subject to taxes. Full payment is due upon booking. Confirmation is made by email.
Cancellations must be made to Extremely Canadian by mail, email or phone and are not considered cancelled until acknowledged by return mail, email or phone call by Extremely Canadian.
Lesson may be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to the lesson for no fee. Inside of 48 hours and prior to the day of the lesson, there is no fee to transfer to another day or to cancel and refund to a gift card. Inside of 48 hours and prior to the day of the lesson, there is a $25 + tax fee for group lessons and $50 + tax fee for a private lesson to cancel a lesson and refund to a credit card. A change of dates is considered a cancellation and a re-booking, therefore cancellation policies apply.
No refunds will be issued on whole or partially unused portions of packages. No refunds will be issued on day of lesson (medical reasons with a doctor’s note may be an exception).
In rare instances, we may ask a guest to switch from a clinic or camp that has too few participants. If this happens we will attempt to notify you 24 hours prior to the date. However, we reserve the right to cancel any clinics or camps, for any reason, at any time prior to start. In such a case, refund of any payments received shall constitute full settlement.
Adventure travel involves risk and unpredictable weather conditions. Extremely Canadian does not purport to any guarantee of conditions.
We do not request proof of insurance coverage, but please ensure that you have appropriate coverage to ensure that you are adequately covered for any eventuality. We highly suggest that you purchase trip cancellation insurance to avoid penalties related to a change in plans.
MEETING TIME & PLACE
Meeting time and place is 8:15 AM on the deck of the Carleton Lodge in the main village between the gondolas. If you prefer a different meeting time or place, please advise and we will do our best to accommodate.
LATE ARRIVAL OR DEPARTURES
Extremely Canadian cannot accept responsibility for travellers inconvenienced by late, diverted, delayed, cancelled, or rescheduled travel arrangements. This also applies to missed connections or transfers.
Guests are expected to behave in an orderly fashion and not to disrupt the enjoyment of other guests or in anyway harm the reputation of Extremely Canadian or its suppliers. Extremely Canadian reserves the right to decline accepting or retaining any guest whose health or actions impede the operation of a clinic or camp or the welfare or enjoyment of fellow guests.
We worry less about exact ratios but we endeavour to have a tight match of ability and inclination to provide tons of vertical and mileage while moving quickly and safely through terrain appropriate for the group. Ratios can be between 1:5 but are usually closer to 3:1. If we don’t have a group for you we will work to find another program that matches your ability or provide a full refund.
Group programs are for guests aged 16 and older. All clients 18 & under must sign the safety voucher and wear a helmet.
You will be required to sign and return a waiver and release of liability and a medical form before your first day of skiing. Below is a copy of the waiver for your review.» Sample Waiver
