Backcountry Adventures

NEW – Backcountry Adventures in Whistler, BC

We are taking our legendary program into the backcountry, and you’re invited along for the ride.

Take the Next Step. Literally.

From the top of Whistler or Blackcomb, tantalizing backcountry ski & snowboard terrain stretches to the horizon in every direction. It’s accessible, and begging to be shredded. Take the next step.

Build Awareness.

Now you’re eyeing up that untracked line, it’s within reach, and you’re ready to rip. Or is IT ready to rip? Avalanche safety and mountain awareness are critical skills to learn and practice frequently.

Boost Your Skills.

This isn’t a bookworm avalanche course. In a full day of mind-blowing guided backcountry skiing, telemarking or snowboarding, ACMG Guides will share techniques and tactics to hone your skiing, boost your safety knowledge, and heighten your awareness in big mountain terrain.

Private or Group. You Choose.

Backcountry Adventures run daily, December through April, when a minimum of 3 skiers are booked. Or book a Private; ski the lines you and your guide choose, travel at your pace, and get one-on-one coaching and instruction. With Privates you can also rally your group of up to 5 friends/family of similar ability.


You are in good hands. We are excited to announce that Keith Reid, President of the ACMG and recognized internationally as a senior guide/examiner with ACMG and IFMGA, is leading this exciting new program.

Keith knows the backcountry terrain around Whistler Blackcomb better than anyone, and he’s pumped to share it with more skiers and riders this winter.

“We had an awesome day with Keith yesterday.  Really impressed with how Keith took the Extremely Canadian style coaching into the backcountry, rather than “just” be a guide.” – Steve Brain,

“For the acquisition of superior skiing skills, unforgettable experiences, unfailing camaraderie and cool nicknames, there is none better: Extremely Canadian – The only way to fly!”  - Chris Simmen
