Mystery Creek Freeride Camp
Heli, Winter Camping, Freeride Camp
We personally consider Spring Skiing in the Coast Range the highlight of the year! And for our first spring trip, we are heading to the rarely travelled Mystery Creek zone just north of Whistler, BC. Since this area is accessed only by helicopter, we will have our pick of the area. Expect big peaks, expansive glaciers and ski lines for days.
The focus of this trip is freeriding skills in alpine terrain. Over the course of 4 days, participants will have opportunities to lead objectives and receive direct feedback and guidance from the Guides.
We will be camping just above treeline in a comfy tent town set up, logging big days and exploring this hard to reach ski gem.
Length: 4 Days
Elevations: 1300m - 2400m
Terrain: Open bowls, alpine faces and couloirs.
Season: Scheduled Dates in Spring 2021
Max. Guest to Guide Ratio: 4:1
Favourite Runs: Currie South Face and Habachi Ridge.
As you travel north of Whistler, the mountains seem to creep up in size, both in the length of runs and the expanse of the terrain. This area is best described as the Whistler Backcountry on steroids. The big glacier runs, fun peaks to climb, the skiing and massive smooth alpine runs will make your legs burn.
