If you want to push yourself safely out of your comfort zone in this skiing/snowboarding environment, this is the way to do it. Our guide, Jane, assessed our abilities and confidently and safely showed us how to take our skills up a notch and get into some terrain that we wouldn't have otherwise tried or known how to find.

If you want to improve your skills in steep terrain this is the way to go. Our instructor and guide Will was awesome and did a great job imparting valuable skills in a variety of snow and terrain conditions on very difficult weather days.

Hi jk8994 - Glad to hear you had a good time with Will. He is one of the best. We always tell people the best time to take a clinic is when conditions are challenging. It's a good time to learn the skills that will apply in a all of conditions. We look forward to skiing with you again soon!... More

Everything you've heard is true...if you are a decent skier and want to up your game and push your limits, you should do this. Did the two day steeps camp with Will and he showed us terrain that I have never skied before and probably would never have skied even if I did find it. Quads were begging for mercy... More

I've been downhill skiing at Whistler for years. And alpine touring in BC, WA, ID & CO since the late 70s, but never at Whistler. I've wanted to do some touring here, but didn't want to head out without a good orientation to the area. So, we (2 couples) hired a guide from EC for a day. It was beyond... More

I joined up for a experienced back country tour, the guides were so friendly and had lots of knowledge about the mountains. The pace was perfect, recommend this for anyone that has a decent fitness level that wants an alternative to expensive cat skiing and heli skiing can do this tour.

We joined a two day steep and deep clinic and enjoyed skiing with the best coaches on the mountain. We ended going on a backcountry experience with Extremely Canadian and booking a solo lesson with Wendy. I would love to come to Whistler again just to ski with them again!

Gillian McFetridge was my instructor for a single day solo steeps lesson. She listened to my self description and skiing objectives and we headed out. She was a zen master. She led me on a series of runs and after watching me a few times gave me a few critical things to work on and some amazingly helpful insights which... More

We had a bluebird day for our 'one day steep and deep' clinic. I was a little anxious as to what we might be expected of us but I needn't have been. The coaching was fantastic with some great take home tips. Our skill level was assessed on a couple of warm up runs in the morning before the group... More

As someone who learned to ski at Whistler I thought I knew my way around the place pretty well. Not true! The Ex Can guides took me to powder stashes I never even knew existed! It was so fun to follow the guides to their favourite areas on both mountains and they were patient and effective with their steep skiing... More
