British Columbia Ski Tour Itinerary:
- Day 1: Kelowna pickup 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: Ski Revelstoke, Halcyon Hot Springs 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: Ski Revelstoke 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: Ski Kicking Horse 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: Ski Kicking Horse 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: "Valley of a Thousand Peaks", Lussier Hot Springs 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 have the option to be dropped off at your hotel or the airport, 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. This is where your 6 day Canada ski vacation ends with a drop off at your hotel. You have the option to be dropped off at the Cranbrook Airport by 2:30 pm for the easiest flight options, or ride along until Nelson and then hop on a shuttle to Kelowna or Spokane Airport the next morning.
