Awesome holiday, had lots of adventurous fun on the 9 day powder highway tour. Alex did a great job balancing different ski levels and making sure everyone was kept happy. We explored some great terrain, got to do some hiking and jumping off big mountains, definitely pushed me to ski happily outside my comfort zone.. My boyfriend was new to skiing and Alex did a great job setting him up with great instructors and lots of tips when we skied together. Getting to find untracked powder, amazing food each night and the natural hot springs make this tour one of a kind. Highly recommend to all, good mix of ages on the tour make this a great option to see the best of BC.

Excellent 9 Day Powder Highway Trip!

We’ve recently returned from the 9-day Powder Highway tour in Spring with Alex. Had an absolutely amazing time! I was a non-skier before the trip, and my partner an experienced skier, so we found the tour a great mix where Alex would sort out lessons and show me the best beginner runs whilst my partner and the majority of the group went and hiked mountains and chased the powder. I also found the order of resorts perfect for beginners as Revel Stoke has multiple beginner runs with magic carpets, Kicking Horse has a huge range of perfect beginner/intermediate runs, and then Whitewater allowed me to step up to more advanced runs. Alex organized everything down to a tee with good accommodation and great food spots everyday. Highly recommend and would do it again in a heart beat!

This was the first guided ski trip I have taken and let me tell you that it exceeded my expectations by far. A guide like Alex is invaluable since he opens up a whole new world of challenging terrain that brings out the best in you.
Aside from his knowledge of the ski mountain, he plans every detail from lodging to meals to transportation to hot springs R&R. We saw and did many things seamlessly which is something only a local can provide so we could just concentrate on the skiing.

My mate and I joined Alex of Fresh Adventures and 8 others on a pretty epic ski adventure in March 2017. Alex was the perfect host and showed us the best spots to ski, eat and drink. As our group had different ski/boarding abilities, Alex was flexible and made sure that we all felt comfortable and got the most out of our trip. He supported me on runs that i never thought I'd do! Alex's love of nature, winter sports and adventure makes him the perfect host for a tour like this.

I am going to try and put into words the amount of fun that I had with Alex during my trip with him, but I already know I won't be able to do it justice. I would have treated my own brother no differently than Alex treated me during our tour together, staying at and seeing all the hidden places. Helped me push some of my limits I wanted pushed while being totally respectful and good natured. Couldn't believe the lengths that he went to just to make sure that I had fun during my stay with him. We traversed into areas that seemed to be his little secret part of the mountains and he showed me sides of BC that I am positive you wouldn't see with anyone else. It used to be that I planned all my trips myself, but this experience has really opened me up to the idea of being guided. It's a whole new world out there folks!

My husband and I took this tour with Alex last year. It was our third ski trip to BC. I am not a big skier, but my husband really like the safari style of tour, since he was able to explore more mountains than before. He usually skis alone on our trips with my knee being too weak to do much skiing, so having a guide and buddy to ski with was really nice for him. Alex showed him some runs that were perfect for his level, and it sounds like it helped him get more comfortable in powder as well. I mostly window shopped and relaxed during the tour, but my favourite part of the tour was going to the hot springs during the evenings. I had never been in a natural spring before, and despite the slight sulphur smell it was really quite incredible.

So much pow...

Loved the trip. Our guide Alex was amazing. He took my boyfriend and I to the most epic runs of our lives. My boyfriend skis and I snowboard so we were wondering if that would work on the tour, but our guide actually did both and spent a day snowboarding with me too! We are hoping to do this trip again next year, but might do the longer one to try Red Mountain too.

Epic Time!

Absolutely amazing time. Did the 9 day Powder Highway safari with Fresh Adventures and loved every minute of it. I have skied in BC every year for as long as I can remember, but it was never like this. I learned some tricks to help me ski through the trees better and the hot springs we went to were hidden gems. I didn't even know BC had hot springs like that and I must say, they really help with the sore ski legs at the end of the day.
