Aurora Backcountry Pass. Your season pass to the backcountry. Whistler Ski Guiding

YOUR SEASON PASS TO THE BACKCOUNTRY!

Too busy to plan your own trips? Sick of waiting for your crew to organize? Want the best $$ for a guide? The Aurora Backcountry Pass is your solution

Get your Aurora Backcountry Pass today and join a community of backcountry skiers and splitboarders. Our backcountry trips can run any day of the week with just a minimum of 3 people . The pass offers unbeatable flexibility at an amazing price! Visit our FAQ to learn more.

Mentorship is not just for beginners. Receive mentorship with your Aurora Backcountry Pass and develop your skills from our team of experienced ACMG guides throughout the entire season. Real backcountry knowledge is not learned during a few days on a course. It's acquired over a lifetime!

Are you a long time ski tourer or splitboarder and just don't have the time to organise your crew? Do you want to join a last minute heli drop, sled access day or an overnight trip? We do the planning for you! Just book and show up! You may even meet a new, more reliable crew to ride with ;)

Visiting for a holiday and want to do a few days at the resort and a few in the backcountry? Maybe your partner or friends are more into the resort and don't want to earn their turns. A day pass is a great way to get one or a few days in last minute. It's also fully refundable if you don't use it.. Really, you can't go wrong with The Aurora Backcountry Pass, its the most affordable and flexible way to hire certified ACMG Ski Guides.
