Whistler Alpine Meadows
Salomon Coast Mountain Trail Series


The Salomon Coast Mountain Trail Series (CMTS) is a collection of quality, challenging, professionally-run trail events in world class destinations around Vancouver's North Shore and the Sea to Sky Corridor.

Whistler Alpine Meadows

Welcome to the Whistler Alpine Meadows races. Quite simply, this is some of the most fantastic terrain you could ever hope to run on, with the added bonus of being in the world class destination of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

The Whistler Alpine Meadows races (WAM) encompass all of the absolute highlights of what Whistler and coastal British Columbia has to offer, and in fact many of the alpine trails utilized in these races were only completed over the last few years. Runners will be treated to expansive alpine meadows, raging waterfalls, blooming wildflowers, calving glaciers, dizzying suspension bridge crossings, pristine alpine tarns and over a dozen backcountry lakes, and that's not to mention the 360 degree panoramic mountain views as far as the eye can see. Whistler is world famous for good reason!

The Whistler Alpine Meadows races have it all and are not shy on the elevation profile side of things either, just click on through and view those course profiles! 

For 2019 you can select between the following race distance options:

  • the Ascent race - 13.5km with 1700m / 5600ft of ascent
  • the 25km distance boasting 750m / 2400ft
  • the 55km race with a challenging 2800m / 9200ft! 
  • the 110km distance with a staggering 6100m / 20,000ft!
  • the 175km with a measly 9500m, 31,500ft ;)
  • or the Triple WAMMY! including the Friday Ascent, Saturday 25k, Sunday 55k totalling 93.5km; 5250m of ascent and 3550m of descent

Buckle up!

PLUS, every runner also receives with registration: race shirt, Boco endurance hat, buff, cinch bag, a trail donation, chip timing, finisher medal (buckle for 175k), live tracking for 110k & 175k and a finish line BBQ and hugs!

For 2019, we're donating $5 from every 25k, 55k and Ascent entry, and $10 from every 110k, 175k, and Triple WAMMY! entry to various trail projects organized by the Whistler ACC and WORCA. We can also use your physical help on the trails - contact us for available dates and projects.

Deferral/Cancellation Policy

Bibs are not transferrable to another runner under any circumstances.

Once a race distance is sold out, that’s it – there will be no new spots, no waitlist, and no transfers.

Anyone dropping out up to and including June 1 will receive a 50% refund of entry fees.

Up to 30 days before race day, we can offer a 100% deferral of fees, towards another NOT YET SOLD OUT, CMTS event. **

Between 14 to 30 days before race day, we can arrange a 50% deferral of race fees, towards another NOT YET SOLD OUT, CMTS event. **

** Deferrals are only applicable for one calendar year from the race you transfer out of (meaning the race entry can be deferred to any OTHER race, but not the same race one year later). Entries can only be deferred a single time, to a single event.

Within 2 weeks of race day - No refunds. No deferral. No exceptions.

At any time, you can request to drop down in distance within the same event. There is no cost or refund for dropping down. We do not allow runners to move up in distance.

In the event of cancellation of the event for reasons including, but not limited to, weather, forest fires, wildlife, acts of nature, war, strikes or other circumstances, Ridgeline Events will provide a limited refund and discount towards the same event in the following year. See full details here.

Thank you for your understanding and adherence to our race policies. We look forward to seeing you on race day!
