Champagne Resort Tour

The Selkirk Mountain Range receives world renowned powder snow, both in quantity and quality. On this tour we take you to Canada's two youngest resorts, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke Mountain Resort, in the heart of the Selkirks. The combination of champagne powder and lack of crowds will make you want to return every year. You'll also visit Lake Louise or Sunshine Village on this tour, whichever of these Rockies' classics has the best conditions at the time.

After picking up guests at the Calgary airport (afternoon arrivals are best), the group drives 1.5 hr to Banff, checks into the hotel, and meets for dinner to become acquainted and talk trip details and snow conditions.

The next morning you will be driven to Lake Louise or Sunshine Village (approx 1 hour drive), in the Great Divide of the Canadian Rockies. After skiing, a 1.5 hr drive will have you checking in to the bed & breakfast in Golden, home of Kicking Horse Resort. Four huge alpine bowls will keep you busy at The Horse for three days with options to hike out of bounds that include a full or part day ski tour, or a shorter 30 minute hike for some powder. In the morning of day 6 you will travel to North America's newest resort, 2 hours to the west.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts heli, cat, and lift-accessed terrain out the same base area, as well as more vertical drop than any other ski area in North America; 1713m or 5620 ft. An impressive ski area with alpine terrain that transitions into groomers that seem to never end.

After 2 days in Revelstoke you'll be driven back to the B & B in Golden, where you'll have your final dinner together with the other guests on the tour. On day 8, you'll drive through the Rockies, with time to stop at one of many scenic natural attractions along the way, and drop guests off for flights out of the Calgary Airport.

Who is this trip suitable for?
You can join the fixed date tour(s) as a solo traveller, a couple or a small group or if you have a group of 5 or more you may want to get a quote for your own private group for dates that suit you (subject to CPA having availability).

As a minimum, you should be a reasonably strong intermediate skier or boarder able to ski/ride steepish intermediate runs. Whilst this tour has the option for some hiking and touring it is not compulsory and you will have the option to split from the group and ride the groomed runs of the resort of that is what you prefer.

As this is a road trip, you should have a good sense of adventure and a good sense of humor as things may not always go as planned due to inclement weather, avalanche risk and road closures as an example.

If you meet the criteria above you will have one of the best trips of your life!
