Spearhead Hut Overnight Trip

Two days of guided backcountry skiing and one overnight in the super comfortable “Kees and Clair Hut” in the Whistler backcountry.

On day 1 we will utilize the Whistler chairlift system to access the backcountry in Garibaldi Park. Once we enter the backcountry, it’s approximately 2-3 hours of ski touring to the reach the hut near Russet Lake. After lunch and a short break at the hut to drop gear, we will do an afternoon ski tour in the surrounding area before returning to the hut for the evening. On day 2, there will be an option for a morning ski tour before returning to the Whistler village. Classic morning objective is Whirlwind Peak with epic views and a sweet descent back to the hut.
