Interest: I enjoy outdoor activities of all sorts, and always learning new ways to enjoy myself outside. Reading, socializing, travelling, and photography keep me busy as well.
Yeah the backcountry tickets are a little more expensive than the sightseeing tickets. You can still get them at guest services, this season.
As always, make sure you bring the needed gear (including skins of course) and have proof of a trip plan left with someone.
I think the reference to Extremely Canadian might be a subtle attempt to direct users interested in the whistler backcountry to their guided programs.
