Participant Information

This Companion Rescue Refresher is hosted through Mountain Skills Academy & Adventure (MSAA) formerly known as Whistler Alpine Guides Bureau (WAGB). I will be attending it and hoping to find a partner to ski with on the resort before/afterwards. I'm currently based in Squamish now, and would be willing to carpool up/back together from Squamish. As such, I will not be at the Taylor Way Church meeting point at 6:30am, but can arrange the logistics for this if/when participants sign up. Please note, if you are the only participant, you will have to find a means of transportation to Squamish and I can drive from there if need be.

I intend to be up at Whistler for the day, so if you're interested in all or some of the activities, please sign-up and let me know your schedule.

- If you intend to only ski at Whistler/Blackcomb resort, we can meet in the morning and late afternoon for some turns, a full lift pass (http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/purchase/tickets-and-passes/winter-lift-tickets) will be required and appropriate resort skiing gear.

- If you are only interested in the companion rescue, we can meet at the roundhouse at 10:45am. A backcountry lift pass and appropriate backcountry gear (touring skis, binding, boots, skins, beacon, shovel, probe) will be required. You will have to pay the $10 registration fee with MSAA (https://www.mountainskillsacademy.com/).


Please note, it will be cold and wet up there, so dress appropriately. It might not be a bad idea to bring a change of clothes! If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
