Travel the Powder Highway to four different downhill ski resorts in British Columbia


Ski four of the best ski resorts in British Columbia. This is the journey to Mecca for skiers who desire the best all mountain skiing British Columbia has to offer. Over the course of eleven days you will travel in a full circuit along the infamous “Powder Highway”, to four of the most heavy hitting ski resorts in North America.

You start at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, known for having the largest vertical in North America, then proceed to Kicking Horse, famous for wide open ridges and peaks with stunning views of the Rockies. After a day of beautiful scenery and natural hot springs, you head to mythical Nelson, home of Whitewater Ski Resort and its dependable light powder and epic tree runs.

A hot spring later, you roll to nearby Rossland and Red Mountain, which has always been an icon in all mountain skiing lore. These amazing four mountains are some of the least crowded in British Columbia, with the most vibrant ski culture and some of the most beautiful surroundings.

11 day tour, available late December, 2017 - late March, 2018

Day 1

Meet in Kelowna at your hotel.  Once we have gotten to know each other we hop in the van and head two hours North to the rustic mountain town of Revelstoke.  We drive along beautiful cliff lined highway through 3 Valley Gap, and beside shimmering lakes.  Get settled in your hotel before we hit the town for dinner as a group, or opt to do your own thing.  

Day 2

Fill yourself on a hearty breakfast before we head up to the mountain for our first morning of epic big mountain skiing.  Try your luck on the endless variety of chutes, head walls, pillow lines or rolling tree lines, or take a scenic ride down "The Last Spike", with views of Begbie Glacier.  When you can't ski another inch we head back into town for a delicious dinner.  Come along on an outing across a ferry to the other side of the lake where we soak in 104 degree Fahrenheit hot springs, beneath swirling night skies.

Day 3

Back at it today, we hit Revelstoke for another dream ski session.  Get used to the terrain, because we're going to see a lot more of it!  If you want a challenge hike to the shoulder of Mackenzie Peak and drop in on "Mania" or "Discipline" to experience some world class steep skiing.  At the end of the day we go for another well earned meal, or you can roam around the quaint town on your own.

Day 4

We start off by heading through Roger's Pass, infamous for its avalanche tunnels and towering peaks, on our way to Golden.  Take the gondola to the top of Kicking Horse to enjoy the incredible 360 degree views, before dropping in on hair raising chutes and tree runs.  Although Kicking Horse has plenty of beginner terrain, it is known for the abundance of steep, gnarly chutes, tree runs and pillowy bowls.  Ride top to bottom runs to torture your legs, or keep to the top on aptly named "Stairway to Heaven" chair.  Relax with views of the "Dog Tooth Range" and excellent dining options.  

 

Day 5

Hit Kicking Horse for another powder filled day with million dollar views of the Rocky Mountains.  Hike past the chair to charge epic powder runs in "Whitewall", if you dare, or sip a fine glass of wine in the Eagle's Eye Lodge at the top of the mountain.  Eagle's Eye is renown for having the best ski lodge view, which is sure to drop your jaw.  Don't forget to squeeze in some après at Whitetooth, a local favourite.

Day 6

Sleep in a bit and relax, today we are driving South through the "Valley of a Thousand Peaks", stopping in for a delightful soak in Lussier Hotsprings.  These hot springs are a completely natural flow of hot spring water in a rock pool on the side of Whiteswan River.  Ease your muscles in the hot water and take in the beautiful surrounding gorge and river.  We continue through Cranbrook, where you debark if you are on the half tour, then head West for Kootenay Pass.  Once we climb the rugged pass we descend into Nelson, an almost mythical town in the heart of the Kootenays.  For years Nelson has been attracting people's attention with its legendary community spirit and local based economy.  This tiny town of roughly ten thousand is home to close to 80 bars and restaurants as well as countless cafes, shops and even Oso Negro, a must try coffee roaster.  We are confident you will not be bored in Nelson, where we stay for 3 nights.  

Day 7

Dining and nightlife is not all Nelson has in spades.  Head up to Whitewater for some world class steep tree skiing, that will have you whooping with the locals in no time.  Hit "Backside" for the pillow rides of your life, or see how tough your legs are on "Sproulers".  Whitewater also has tons of friendly groomed options, and lodge food that is voted best in the world.  So good in fact, that they came out with a much desired cookbook.  Instead of the usual ski hill microwaved poutine, try the Ymir Bowl, or healthy salads that will leave you inspired.  Don't worry they have inspiring burgers too!  Of course we enjoy a much needed soak in Ainsworth Hot Springs, where you can wander deep into the hand chiseled grotto for the hottest water.  

 

Day 8

Hit the rugged, snowy slopes of Whitewater for another incredible day of launching off everything and narrowly avoiding every species of tree.  Impressive Ymir peak towers above the ski area and makes for really incredible photos.  The patio at the bottom is always in the sun, and is usually a perfect place to grab a cold beer while watching the crazy locals rip down the steepest moguls on the mountain.  Try Cantina for some delicious Mexican food, or Mike's Place to mingle with the lively locals.  

Day 9

Hit the road bright and early and get to Red Mountain in good time.  You are about to learn why Red is considered a beast in the all mountain skiing scene.  From the top of the chair you can ski in any direction you want and arrive at a chair!  Tear down tight trees, chutes, cliff lines, massive pillows, open ridges or some playful, easy groomers.  Just remember to hit Rafters at the bottom for some good food and beers.  We enjoy some of Rossland's amazing selection of dining options, before a good night's sleep.

Day 10

This is your last day to torture your legs so make it count.  Good thing Red Mountain just made one of the biggest expansions in ski resort history, adding 1600 acres of new terrain on Mt Grey.  You will quickly see why Red is consistently rated one of the top freeride resorts in Canada.  We dine as a group, and reflect on all the good times we have had during the tour.  

Day 11

Enjoy a nice cafe breakfast before hopping in the van.  We head 5 hours back to Kelowna, where are you dropped off at your hotel.  You may be leaving, but you will always be part of the Fresh Adventures family!
