Let’s Go To The Mountains!

KEY INFORMATION TO MAKE SURE YOUR TOUR ROCKS!


What to Expect

Weather:

We honestly don’t even know how to tell you about the weather in the mountains and we doubt anyone does. Basically come expecting anything and everything. The temperatures are anywhere between -30 and +5 celcius. You would be safe enough to expect -5 degrees most days. Some days are sunny, some are snowy, some are both. The best thing you can do is dress in layers and be ready for anything.

Skiing/ Snowboarding

Let’s face it… this is why you are here, so let’s not play games. You will be riding some of the best terrain and snow on the planet during this tour. You can expect to ski full days during the entire tour, but there is lots of flexibility in that. We head as a group for somewhere around first chair and ski until somewhere around last chair each day. In that, there is room for some flexibility for you if you prefer to relax a bit. Some mountains have a shuttle, so you can opt to arrive later or leave earlier. It is also perfectly acceptable to head in early and start warming a seat for your après ski session. You are also welcome to take a day off and we can help you arrange an alternative activity like snowshoeing, dog sledding or snowmobiling. See you on the slopes!
