not your average clinic


If you're looking for the inside track on the best that Whistler Blackcomb has to offer, then you have to join an Extremely Canadian Steep Skiing clinic. This is not your average clinic, and these are not the average ski pros. Hand picked for their extensive knowledge of Whistler and Blackcomb's best "off piste" terrain, our coaches will guide you through some of North America's wildest in-bounds terrain.

With an intensive focus on steep skiing techniques and tactics, you'll find yourself confidently charging into lines that previously would have turned you back, knees quaking.

Our clinics are geared to advanced-intermediate to expert skiers. With an average ratio of 4 skiers per coach, you're sure to bag all the vertical your legs can handle, and maybe just a little bit more. Just when you think it's all over, our famous Merlin's Bar and Grill "decompression sessions" will provide you with the perfect stage to tell your best super hero ski stories.
