Experience the winter wonderland blanketing Canada by ski or snowboard

If you want to explore Canada’s Powder Highway, and the epic, champagne powder, then this 9-day guided ski trip is for you. Explore the ski resorts of Lake Louise, Sunshine, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke by day, and then enjoy these ski towns at night for some après ski.

Spend nine days skiing and immersing yourself in Canada’s backyard on The Powder Highway Ski Tour. Amid gliding through the powdery snow blanketing the Rockies and a handful of mountains dotting British Columbia, you’ll experience the quirky, staple intricacies of Canadian culture: hot springs, quaint pubs and restaurants that manage to induce warmth despite the outdoor temperature, and jaw-dropping views of crisp blue lakes cradled by snow-capped mountains. Even the drive along Powder Highway will have you feeling like you’re living in the thick of a postcard.

The exploration through the ultimate winter wonderland will take you to some of Canada’s most notable ski hills, including Lake Louise Ski Resort, Sunshine Village, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Each mountain also offers beginner and intermediate trails, making this tour a viable option for all levels. If you’re craving a more in-depth exploration of Canada’s backyard, consider joining The Powder Highway Ski Tour Part II, where you’ll enjoy more vistas of hot springs, notable mountain towns, and high-class skiing or snowboarding adventures.
