World famous powder, tree skiing, and long runs
The famous powder highway located in the Monashee and Kootenay mountain ranges of western Canada. You have probably heard people talk about this highway to powder heaven and have dreamt of one day traveling it. Well, dream no longer because it's right here waiting for you.
The Powder Highway is the southern route across western Canada. We start our journey in Kelowna where we then road trip to the towns of Revelstoke, Nelson, Fernie, and finally finishing in Calgary. This trip is designed for intermediate to advanced backcountry ski tourers and split borders. We spend 10 days experiencing some of the best ski destinations in Canada across 4 mountain ranges. In addition to a diverse geography the route is also rich with Canadian history from the first days of discovery and resource development. We will pass through old mining towns, and even visit the famous Frank Slide of 1903 where half a mountain collapsed and buried an entire town. Our evenings we will enjoy meals from local restaurants and sample locally brewed beers from the many micro breweries that we pass along the way. Depending on weather and conditions we can even include a heliski day or a catski day for an extra cost.
Late February and early March are the best times to ski from these epic ski towns because the snow is cold, dry, fluffy, and there is lots of it! This is the tree skiing, deep powder paradise you've always wanted to experience. Classic Canadian skiing, period.
