Backcountry Whistler is a recreational topographic map for the alpine areas of the Spearhead and Fitzsimmons Ranges of the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada - adjacent to and beyond Whistler and Blackcomb ski resorts. Route information for hiking, mountaineering, backcountry skiing, steep skiing and heli-skiing is marked on a large scale map and accompanied by detailed descriptions on the back of the map. The area covered contains some of the finest and most accessible alpine terrain in Garibaldi Provincial Park with extensive alpine meadows and glaciers well suited to hiking and skiing. A variety of trips into the backcountry ranging from a few hours to four or more days, in summer and winter, are described. Includes alpine hikes on Blackcomb and Whistler, the popular Singing Pass Trail and the complete Spearheads Ski Traverse.
"For more inside dope, get a copy of John Baldwin's 'Backcountry Whistler'. a great map that details all major routes." Alex Markels, National Geographic Adventure
"John Baldwin has produced the most comprehensive map resource yet for the Spearhead and Fitzsimmons Ranges east of Whistler Village." Charles Montgommery, Explore
"With dozens of touriing and ski descent routes clearly marked on a 1:25,000 large scale map, John Baldwin's Backcountry Whistler is an indispensible sheet for any who venture here.....getting a copy of this map before heading north might be your best piece of advice." Steve Threndyle, Couloir
"I have to say, I am very impressed with the Backcountry Whistler Map... it's a good hybrid between resort leaflet and mountaineer technicality."
" The Whistler area has to be the most overly mapped region · but most of the product is actually less useful than the standard 1:50,000 sheets. Yours seems to finally hit the nail on the head."
