Called the “Haute Route of the Americas”, the Spearhead Traverse is one of the most famous ski traverses in the Pacific Northwest. Connecting Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Peak through 11 glaciers and spectacular scenery, it’s on the tick list of many backcountry skiing enthusiasts. Our guest speaker Manouane Deschenes has led multiple ACC trips on the Spearhead Traverse. She will share her experience travelling on this iconic route and offer tips for those who’d like to do the trip themselves.
