Backcountry Skiing - Zoa Pk
This one will be a little bit more of a
beginner friendly trip
(read: epic guaranteed) for ski touring in the
Whistler Blackcomb Backcountry. This is
contingent on if
Whistler will be opening the Symphony Express
chairlift or not.
If you are new to ski touring, or have a new
kit, or want an
easier first backcountry skiing trip of the
then this one is for you. All ability levels
are welcome and
we will likely try to ski open bowls and
glades. Please have a
moderate level of fitness and
feel comfortable skiing Blue runs on Whistler,
on and off
Note that there is a $60 backcountry
lift pass you
must pay for at guest services,
you must present your backcountry safety gear
to them and
sign a waiver.
