Resorts

Whistler
Whistler Blackcomb is consistently rated in the top 10 resorts in in North America by TransWorld SNOWboarding. So if you’re looking for the the best park, the deepest snow, the craziest terrain, or the most seamless halfpipe, then Whistler Blackcomb should be on the top of your list for places to shred! You need experience the riding here for yourself to see why it lives up to its reputation. Whistler has it all. Loads of varied and challenging terrain, amazing backcountry access, bowls, steeps, trees, 5 terrain parks, a superpipe and boardercross track. Two giant peaks surround the purpose-built village of Whistler itself. February to April are often good times to visit as there’s plenty of deals on accommodation combined with a great local vibe with small crowds and lots of pow

 

 

Sun Peaks
Long cruisers, deep steeps, incredible tree skiing and an enormous terrain park offer a remarkably diverse alpine experience. Oh yeah, did we mention that it’s the second largest ski area in Canada? Sun Peaks also scores great quality snow, and lots of it. Prevailing storms from the Pacific Ocean rise and cool as they pass over the Coast Mountains, dropping heaps of the light, dry, ‘easy-to-ski’ powder that they have become famous for. Quality, quantity, and award-winning grooming make for the most consistent conditions you could dream of!

 

Revelstoke
Canada’s newest ski resort, celebrating its 10th Anniversary this season. With 1,713 m (5,620 ft) – the longest lift accessed vertical of any resort in North America, 3,121 acres of terrain and about 10 m (30-40 ft) of snow annually, it is a big mountain enthusiast’s dream come true. At over 15 km in length, the resort also boasts the longest ski run in North America. If you want to challenge yourself with unbelievably long fall line groomers or deep snow, and if off-piste, tree riding sounds appealing to you, Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the place to be.

 

Small Groups
When we are on mountain, we keep our group size small for a more personal experience between our guests and guides. Our typical guide to guest ratio is 1 : 6. This ensures you get the most out of your time with us, and keeping the groups small means less time waiting and more time riding powder!

Snow & Conditions
This region scores it’s biggest storms during February. What you can expect on this tour is cold temperatures and deep powder. Most days you can expect to ride powder that’s anywhere from boot to waist deep. Even if we don’t get fresh snow overnight, the cold temperatures and our local knowledge will ensure you’ll be able to ride light dry snow days after a storm.

Quality Accommodation
We make sure all our guests stay in quality accommodation that’s in the best location. Our comfortable twin share rooms are equipped with 2 single beds, and each room has a great heating, private ensuite bathroom, TV, and free WiFi. In Revelstoke we have home cooked breakfasts included, and in Sun Peaks & Whistler there’s cafe’s nearby hotel where you can grab a quick bite before we head off to the mountain each day.
