The West Kootenay Classic

The West Kootenay Classic is a nine-day tour that visits Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Whitewater in Nelson, and Red Mountain in Rossland.

Revelstoke’s resort (RMR) boasts the largest vertical of any ski area in North America. Cat and Heli Skiing are both offered from the resort as a day skiing option for those interested. RMR has been investing in a summer glading program in the last few years, opening up more and more treed runs.

Whitewater is located in the shadow of Mt. Ymir and is famous for deep, dry powder and perfectly gladed tree runs. A recent expansion has opened up an entire new side of the mountain, with a new chair and base area. The mid-week crowds are small, and the locals are friendly and welcoming. Nelson's night life is always lively.

The locals in Rossland had been sitting on a gold mine for decades, until the last few years when Red Mountain’s village development got underway. There’s been a lot of clean up of overgrown gladed terrain, opening up some of the best fall-line tree skiing found anywhere. Red has always been well known as a leg burning paradise, small in size, with lots of hidden powder stashes. The recent massive expansion with a new lift on Mt. Grey adds 1/3 of the resort's terrain.

This tour has some fixed date(s) or alternatively you can round up your own private group (of up to 10) and book your own custom dates. All tours start on a Saturday from Kelowna International Airport and end the following Sunday at the same place.

Whilst this tour generally has some fixed date tours i.e. tours where solo travelers and small groups can join, this tour is generally designed for private groups. The "from" price is based on the fixed date package and this may vary for a private group depending on the number of guests in your group. For example if you have 6 or 10 people in your group this is the optimal number utilizing 1 or 2 guides; whereas a group of say 4 is going to be more expensive than the quoted price.
