Just returned from the 11 day Powder Highway tour and can only say that my expectations were easily exceeded. 3 years in the making with Alex to get there so excitement level was high when leaving for the "adventure".
Myself and my 2 adult children teamed with 5 others to form a tight group that jelled together for a fantastic trip that was lead by 2 incredible guides (now friends) Darren and Claire. Nothing was too much trouble. We skied with smiles and achieved things i wouldn't have thought possible. i certainly won't be waiting 3 years to do it again. if you are thinking about it, just do it!!
Thanks for everything Alex, Darren and Claire

11 Day BC Ski Tour

Chris

Everything you could ask for...and then some!

This was my second year travelling from Scotland for the 11 Day BC Ski Tour - which says something for Fresh Adventures and the stunning Powder Highway.

Right from the start, Alex was very helpful answering any questions I had and setting up bookings to suit. Including accommodation before and after the tour.

In the mountains, Margot and Sam were fantastic guides. Expertly catering to the levels of the group and riding people wanted to do. Having guides like this allowed us to make the most of some incredible resorts. Hikes to hidden stashes, powdery tree runs and steep chutes. I felt confident and safe where I wouldn't have ventured otherwise.

It's also hard not to catch on to Margot's seemingly endless enthusiasm. This combined with an atmosphere of encouragement and it felt like everyone progressed during the tour.

When not on the slopes, there's little to stress about. As there was always a plan for the best après and dinner spots. With plenty of local knowledge thrown in.

Now back home and I wish I was still chasing the sound of excited shouts through the trees.

Thanks for everything Margot, Sam and Alex!

My daughter and I went on the 11 day, 4 resort tour with Margot and Bev as our guides. What an awesome trip. Margot and Bev are sensational guides showing us spots we never would have found on our own. Our group was a bunch of fantastic people. the restaurant choices were fabulous. Alex the owner, even helped arrange a few days in Whistler for us after the tour. We’re both exhausted and exhilarated and would highly recommend Fresh Adventures to any skier or boarder. And damn, those girls can ride/ski!! :)

11 Days of Heaven

I’ve recently returned from Canada and feel so privileged to have had such an amazing experience.
Travelling alone for the first time, I was a little anxious and detailed information prior to departure was a little sketchy. This is the only element of the tour which I cannot highly praise.
Margot and Bev, our guides were just so full of fun and positivity and went to great lengths to enjoy and participate in the humour that only a majority Aussie team can truly appreciate.
We skied some fantastic terrain that I wouldn’t have tackled solo, got into some very interesting beverages and chowed down on scrumptious Canadian cuisine.
All in all Margot and Bev, you do your country proud as exceptional ambassadors and the other participants on the tour were okay ;-)
Love youse all xxx

Best trip ever!

Seriously cannot recommend this trip enough. We had an amazing crew, and Margot and Bev were brilliant. All restaurant recommendations were perfect, and the girls pushed us all (gently) to go further than we had gone before, while making sure no-one got left behind. I had absolute faith in them at all times, and if you want an appetiser for the BC Powder trail, do this tour. Well done Fresh Adventures!

Fantastic!

How lucky am I to have found 'The Powder Highway' with Fresh Adventures! Best skiing holiday I've ever had. Fabulous challenging tree skiing in fluffy powder. Not what this Aussie is used to. Following Alex like a 'duckling' with her mum (dad)! Alex definitely made the trip. He's so enthusiastic, fun and had us completely organised. This trip is a must!

Powder Highway 11 Day Trip

I recently returned from a BC powder highway tour with Fresh adventures. Led by Alex , whose meticulous preparation and attention to detail ensured we were treated to the very best on and off the slopes . The beauty of the 11 day tour is you get to experience 4 very different ski resort terrains , as well as taking in some of Canada's most breathtaking scenery. Add to that some amazing culinary delights , comfortable accommodation , natural hot springs visits , and a wonderful eclectic tour group , it's hard not be full of praise for Alex and his tour operation . If you are a skiing / boarding enthusiast , i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for your next holiday

Fantastic week of snowboarding/skiing and eating beautiful food with Fresh Adventures!! All thanks to Alex, our local, brilliant and fearless guide. We had some epic snow and ate at great cafes and restaurants all week. B.C. is stunningly beautiful. A very well organised and thought out tour. Plenty of laughs were shared from our eclectic and very international group. Throw in some natural hot springs that Alex took us to and we had a brilliant time!! Thanks again Alex and Fresh Adventures. I highly recommend the experience.

11 Day Snowboarding Tour

I just came back from a winter tour led by Alex and I can confidently say that he made it the trip of a lifetime. Alex knew all the best runs to ski/board where we would find amazing powder to go through. Alex was even kind enough to give me a few quick snowboarding tips which really helped me out. Alex took us to some amazing restaurants that served some amazing food and knew the best cafes to go to for top quality coffee.
It was really nice to go on a trip and not have to worry about what time we needed to get up or what time we needed to leave location X to arrive at location Y as Alex had everything perfectly planned out.

Going on this tour, I didn't feel like just another customer at all, I felt like family and couldn't help feel a little sad when it was time for the tour to come to an end. I'll definitely be returning next year.
