Because it's 2015...
For over 25 years the Escape Route has been the leader in Whistler's backcountry gear scene. Now as we move into our second quarter-century, we realize that our future must include more than our friendly (and knowledgeable) customer service at our stores in Squamish and Whistler. As avid backcountry travelers, skiers, splitboarders, climbers, hikers and paddleboarders ourselves, we're looking for more ways to engage with you - the online community.
And so the Escape Route Blog is born. Here you will find weekly product reviews, previews of the latest and greatest gear, trip reports, interviews and How-To guides. If it's related to having fun outside, we'll cover it.
From our humble beginnings as a small outfitter store on Whistler's Village Stroll in 1990, Escape Route has helped grow outdoor and backcountry culture in the Sea to Sky Corridor and continues to spread the avalanche safety message and support grass roots events such as the Rubble Creek Classic trail run.
