Join us deep in the Kootenays for our backcountry freeride mission
Time poor and just need quality powder without having to learn a new trail map or ask some rude crusty local where the secret spots are at? Then our Kootenays Express Tour is designed to give you everything Mint Tours is known for, but condensed into an all-inclusive short break backcountry tour.
We’ll spend 4 nights and 3 days in the township of Nelson famous for community spirit, independent stores, bars and coffee. Whitewater ski area boasts everything from open bowls and steep tree runs.
After hiking from anywhere between 30 mins to 3 hrs, your lead guide will safely recommend the best route down to ensure you score the powder run of your life. On average, expect to ski and snowboard a mix of deep dry powder in the trees through to open bowls and natural gullies.
