Calgary pick up @ 2 pm from Marriott Downtown Hotel.

Fernie Mountain Lodge for 2 nights

Explore Fernie’s incredible 5 epic bowls and 1 alpine peak, each with their fair share of secret lines, tree runs, and wide open powder slopes. There is nothing like a weekday powder day at Fernie!

Didn’t ski all the powder on the first day? Come back for another round of putting your signature track on some of the best laps Fernie has to offer with your guide to show you the way. After skiing we hop in the van and head 3.5 hours west to Nelson, BC.

Prestige Lakeside Resort for 3 nights.

 

If skiing is like gliding on water, than skiing Whitewater Ski Resort is like going off Niagara Falls in a barrel… NAKED. This place gets big dumps and that’s why we love it! Ski endless tree runs that were seemingly hand crafted by the shred gods to delight you with every turn.

Another glutinous day of skiing pow through picture perfect trees. It’s so quiet here that your heartbeat is almost deafening when you stop and wait for your buds. Nelson is home to a ton of hipsters and hippies, so the dining is pretty legendary with farm to table restaurants, pubs, breweries, and “Boho” diners on every corner. Enjoy some free time exploring the town!

 

This morning we head 1.5 hours to Rossland, home of Red Mountain, home of freeskiing in Canada. Seriously.. this is where it all began. The terrain begs you to let loose and get the powder flowing over your ears as you rip through rolling meadow after rolling meadow of under-rated and seldom shredded pow! No one seems to know how amazing this place is, which is our little secret.

Prestige Mountain Resort for 1 night

Another day of paradise as we ski the trees, bowls and open slopes of Red Mountain. Enjoy lunch on the sunny deck of Paradise Lodge, and finish off the day with a local beer in Rafter’s Bar, which has a legendary status in ski literature. After the ski day we hop in the van and transfer 4 hours to Revelstoke, with a stop for dinner and a soak in some local hot springs enroute.

Sandman Hotel Revelstoke for 3 nights

When early Swiss mountaineers surveyed the railway, a lot of them settled in Revelstoke, creating a ski hill. It was the massive mountain and the bottomless snow that attracted them here over a century ago, and it’s the same attraction to this day. Spend the day skiing the multiple alpine bowls, hiking to secret runs off Subpeak and exploring hidden away tree lines to runs with naughty local names.

Spend the night exploring Revelstokeon your own with some great restaurant recommendations

Revelstoke has far too much terrain to conquer in one day so we have another day to take a crack at it. You’ll love the snow and the views, but you might not love the run “Kill the Banker” so much. We will see how you fare! Sample some local beer while boasting to the others in the group about all the air you got when they weren’t looking.

This morning we will wake up bright and early and hit the road through Rogers Pass for Kicking Horse.

Rogers Pass is an incredible place to travel through, with majestic peaks in all directions and over 140 avalanche paths that affect the highway and railway. Hopefully the peaks turn orange at sunrise! Once we get to Kicking Horse the real fun begins. We have spent the last 8 days getting you ready for the unbelievable alpine terrain at this behemoth of a mountain. Hike with your guide to Terminator Peaks for some sneaky lines, or elsewhere to secret runs that we can’t even name on here!

Prestige Inn for 2 nights

Kicking Horse is heaven on earth, so we spend another day skiing the steeps and powder lines at this resort. The snow stays so soft here, because most of the terrain faces north!

Today we check out and begin our trip back to Calgary but the fun isn’t over. We stop in Banff for a final soak in the hot springs, which have been said to have healing properties in the mineral waters that brought people here for thousands of years.

You can ride with us to Calgary or hop off in Banff if you would like to extend your trip to ski in the Rockies.

Calgary drop off at 2 pm. Hotels and airport.
