Comfortable feet are crucial to a successful week of skiing. If you are planning to rent boots, we suggest that you either bring a pair of liners that fit your feet from other ski boots, or bring the second pair of boots.

For the best accessibility, we suggest that skis be at least 110 mm in the shovel with properly fitting adhesive climbing skins. Our guides use and recommend G3 skis and equipment. Visit www.genuineguidegear.com for more.

Snowboarders should be using split boards. We recommend Prior Splitboards. Visit www.priorsnowboards.com for more information.

It is mandatory that all guests have in their possession at-all-times in the alpine: Shovel, Probe and Transceiver (457 Khz single frequency).

Whitecap Alpine has a small selection of equipment for rental. Additionally, we provide a full rental service through The Escape Route retail store in Whistler, BC.
