About

Joel McBurney is the man behind Big Country Guiding – leading backcountry
ski and snowboard trips throughout Western Canada’s vast mountain wilderness.

From the Selkirks to the Rockies and the Coast range, Joel has the
experience and expertise to take you on the trip of a lifetime. With ski touring packages ranging from half day day trips to week long lodge based tours, or luxury cat or heli ski vacations, there is a powder-filled adventure for everyone.

Residing in Nelson, BC with his wife and two boys, Joel spends the winter as a Lead Guide for Baldface Lodge in addition to Big Country Guiding trips. With over twenty years of backcountry experience, including a decade of guiding, he never tires of grabbing his skis or board and heading out for a day in the mountains.
