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

Fantastic experience all around. I was a blue runs type of skier, could go down a black run but with a lot of effort and serious technique issues, not to mention considerable fear on the more steep runs. It was incredible to see how this one clinic got me to ski black and double black runs so much easier -... More

My family and I have skied with Extremely on several occasions, including a private as a Xmas present for my 10 year old daughter. The experience gets better and better with every clinic. I am not sure how my daughter will handle normal ski school after she has got used to rolling and jumping off cornices with Extremely. I plan... More

Being a pro ski instructor at Whistler Blackcomb, I used opportunity to take 2-day steeps clinic. And I was amazed how much I improved my skiing through exploring both mountains in a fun way. It was a perfect mix of fun, challenge and skiing tips, valuable not only for skiing steep terrain but skiing anything in general. If you want... More

Two days ago I attended the Extremely Canadian Steep Clinic two day course, and I had the best time ever!

I've been lucky. Lots of trips to whistler. Lots of time on snow. I was looking to do something different and I found it. Ski touring. Also the called skinning. Those bindings that look like cross country bindings on downhill skis. It's amazing. The places you can go and the things you see are precious. Glorious. Unimaginable. You should try... More
