The MEGA Canadian Road Trip

With so many world class resorts, Canada leaves you spoilt for choice when it comes to high quality powder, mind blowing tree runs, elite freestyle parks, and amazing vibes in general.

Split across two parts, the MEGA Canadian tour features two days of skiing/snowboarding at the best Canadian resorts on the Mountain Collective & IKON Pass, plus some stops at favourite Powder Highway resorts. Over the course of 18 days, you'll travel deep into the heart of powder heaven, hitting all the secret local spots, and progressing your skills with the guides along the way. This road trip is dialled in to get in as many days riding as possible, so you can make the most of your passes and time.

The best part about the MEGA Canadian Road Trip is that you can choose Part 1 or Part 2 for a regional focus, or select both parts of this MEGA road trip to clock the best riding that Canada has to offer. Whichever option you choose, it will be a great experience exploring the best skiing & snowboarding in Canada and gaining a whole lot of memories with your new found skiing & snowboarding pals.

Part 1

Starting in Radventures' hometown of Banff, your hosts will ensure your timely arrival and make sure you're all checked in. Afterwards there is a team dinner and a chance to meet your new riding pals and guide, to discuss all the awesomeness for the trip ahead.

In Banff, you'll have 6 days with minimal driving to make the most of the local mountains with 2 days at Sunshine Village & Lake Louise, followed by an epic day at the home of the Freeride World Tour, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. These first 6 days of riding gets you dialled in for the rest of the trip and offers a chance to experience the amazing mountain lifestyle, scenery, wildlife & nightlife on offer in the famous towns of Banff & Lake Louise.

From Kicking Horse you will make your way through the jaw-dropping scenery of Glacier National Park to your next destination, Revelstoke. Along the way the group will stop at some natural hot springs to recuperate the legs for the days of steep and deep powder riding ahead.

Revelstoke holds the record for the most snowfall in Canada in a single winter at 80 ft or a whopping 2,438 cm, and the resort slopes are blanketed in an average of 10.5 metres of powder per season.

On the final day of Part 1, you'll depart Revelstoke early to arrive in Kelowna around 12pm to farewell those who are sadly leaving us at this point. Those continuing onto Part 2 will be able to enjoy brewery hopping, ice skating, shopping or relaxing before the van hits the road again.

Part 2

 Welcome to the new squad members joining for part 2 of the MEGA Canadian road trip and hit the road to quirky and charming Rossland for 2 days of epic powder riding & $10 cat-skiing at Red Mountain Resort (on the Ikon Pass).

Red Mountain Resort is famous for its uncrowded, deep powder fall line skiing and snowboarding, and Rossland has been voted as the best ski town in North America, so you can expect nothing short of a great time.

After a couple of days exploring Red's extensive terrain, you'll make the short journey up the road for 2 days at Whitewater Ski Resort and the eclectic town of Nelson, nestled deep in the Selkirk Mountains.

At Whitewater, mother nature blankets the resort in over 40 feet of snow annually, and there are no snowmaking machines to be found. What you will find though is 2,044 feet of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and some fantastic glade riding.

Following four straight days of powder riding, even the most bulletproof riders' legs need a little TLC. So, on the way from Nelson to the next stop at Panorama you'll stop at some hot springs for a nice relaxing dip, before arriving in Invermere that evening.

Panorama sits on the edge of the Canadian Rockies and is famous for its jaw-dropping scenery and the epic tree and powder riding in the Extreme Dream Zone.

On the final day of Part 2, you'll depart Panorama early to enjoy the scenery and arrive back in Banff around midday for those who are staying longer, then continue on to Calgary for a 2pm arrival for those flying out.

Ability & Group Size

This tour is best suited to skiers and snowboarders who are intermediate to advanced and have a desire to ride the best conditions at a number of resorts. Beginners are also welcome, but please be aware that the guiding on the mountain each day is catered towards higher ability levels.

The tour has a maximum guest to guide ratio of 6:1 to ensure the best experience for everyone. Small groups allow greater manoeuvrability, flexibility and ease of access to the best spots that each destination offers. It also allows groups to be split into different ability levels or riding styles each day. Radventures' experienced guides have an in-depth knowledge of the resorts visited, which gives you the ultimate advantage when you're chasing deep, un-tracked snow. The aim is to ride and ski a lot of powder, glades and trees so be prepared to ride and ski in the trees. Of course weather and conditions are not possible to predict so guests must be prepared to ride or ski in any snow conditions.

A minimum of 4 guests are required for this tour, with a maximum of 12 guests sharing the same 14-seater van.

Solo Travellers

The vast majority of guests on this tour are also travelling solo and are eager to make new friends. You'll get along well with your shared interest in snow sports and an eagerness to explore all that Canada has to offer. Accomodation at the base price is shared, but if you want to ensure you have your own room on this tour there is a single supplement upgrade option.

Can non-skiers/boarders join the tour?

For sure! Banff, Lake Louise, Revelstoke and Panorama are lively & fun places to be in the winter even for those not up on the mountain. Your friend/partner is more than welcome to tag along and enjoy the sights of each of our destinations. Please be aware though that this is a snowboarding & skiing trip focused on finding guests the best condtions to ride in and therefore that's will be the priority.

Getting to/from Banff

There are scheduled bus options available that Radventures can book for you or there is the option of Radventures' in-house private van transfers that are affordable, comfortable, and have flexible pick-up times.

Your Guides

All Radventures tours are led by friendly, fun, knowledgeable and expertly trained guides who are passionate about the mountain lifestyle. You'll be guided by someone who loves what they do and loves getting their guests stoked.

Your Transportation

Radventures typically use 14 seater passenger vans. Some days on tour your guide might find it more practical and faster to use the local ski-shuttle because it drops you off right at the lifts. Although there are some days where you will travel relatively long distances, the trips are organized to make travelling as convenient and efficient as possible, maximizing your time on the mountain or doing other activities. The travel days are sometimes a highlight of a trip, with interesting communities and spectacular landscapes encountered en route.

Part 1 & 2 Itinerary

The Mega - Part 1

Day 1 : Arrival day

Make the 90-minute journey from Calgary downtown/airport to Banff and check into your hotel before exploring the incredible town of Banff.

Banff is an epic little mountain town and the centre-piece for Banff National Park, the oldest national park in Canada and the third 3rd oldest in the world.

With your complimentary Banff Local Roam Bus Passes you can head up to the Mt. Norquay lookout, check out Bow Falls, search the area for wildlife, or even explore the downtown area. It's totally up to you.

In the downtown area (a short walk from your hotel room) you can make the most of the endless shopping, incredible restaurants and great breweries and bars.

After a day of wandering, get to know your guide and fellow travellers at tonight's group dinner at a local restaurant/bar. You can continue to party it up with your new friends or return to the comfort of your own queen bed, plus you can make use of the indoor pool & hot tub during your 5-night stay.

Day 2 : Sunshine Village - The first ski day

Your first day on the mountain. Get the lay of the land with your guide plus a local who spends all winter riding these slopes. They'll quickly show you the deep powder stashes and the best lines so you don't have to waste your time. Your local guide will also show you the best on-mountain lunch spots and the apres-ski hot spot.

Feel free to go exploring yourself, ride with your new friends or hit up the snow parks. The choice is yours.

After an epic first day, return to Banff and join the group for an optional VIP shopping experience at a favourite local ski/board store, or make the most of the mountain lifestyle, hit the town or soak in the hot tub.

Day 3 : Sunshine Village day 2

Your second and final day at Sunshine Village. Better go hit those favourite ski runs again. Find out why the Canadian ski & snowboard teams train here on a regular basis with its epic groomers for racing, monster jump lines, and tons of snow parks.

After yet another epic day at Sunshine, become a true Canadian (or should I say Canuck?) by joining your host at a local hockey game.

Day 4 : Lake Louise day 1

Enjoy the first of two days at Lake Louise Ski Resort with a morning guided orientation. Just like day 1 at Sunshine, you'll have your guide plus a local guide who spends all winter riding the slopes at Lake Louise. They'll show you the deep powder stashes and the best lines.

After your day on the mountain, you'll spend some time at Canada's most famous lake, Lake Louise. If you've got the energy, you'll be able to ice skate on the frozen lake, snowshoe around or just relax inside the world-renowned Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

Day 5 : Lake Louise day 2

Day two at Lake Louise gives you the freedom of choice. Hit the groomers, split the trees, drop the backside's blacks and double black runs, or slice it up in the snow park.

Following your time at the ski resort, you will travel through Yoho National Park to Golden, BC. You'll settle into your accommodation for a 2-night stay where you'll have your own queen bed plus access to an indoor pool and hot tub.

This evening the group will wander around the downtown area for an orientation and dinner, plus you've got the option to spend some time in the hot tub to freshen the legs for one more steep mountain assault before a rest day.

Day 6 : Kicking Horse - tame the horse!

Tame the horse at Canada's home to the Freeride World Tour, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Lap the Stairway to Heaven chair, drop into any of the 5 alpine bowls or take the Terminator challenge.
This mountain has so much to offer.

Tonight you have many options including an ice hockey game, drinks at a local brewery, or hanging out and playing some pool at the local bar.

Day 7 : Rest the legs and see the sights

Before you hit the road today, you'll have the option to stop at the Golden Skybridge, the highest suspension bridge in Canada, as well as the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Sanctuary to get to know some furry friends.

Afterwards, you'll continue the short journey to Revelstoke by travelling through the jaw-dropping Glacier National Park (not to be mistaken with the namesake down in the US). You'll make your way across the beautiful Rogers Pass and drive through the avalanche tunnels that
protect the highway from the enormous amount of snow this region receives.

In the afternoon you'll arrive in the charming mountain town of Revelstoke, home to #feelthestoke. This fascinating town is an outdoor adventure hub year round, with winter activities including dog sledding, backcountry skiing/boarding, heli-skiing and a whole lot more.

Tonight you'll stay downtown in a centrally located 3-star hotel, just a short walk from the best taco spot around.

Day 8 : Hit the mountain at Revelstoke - day 1

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is renowned for receiving lots of snow.

Start the day with yet another mountain introduction by your Revy local guide. They'll show you the ins and outs and the best spots to maximize your time at this insane ski resort.

After an epic day on the mountain, tonight you'll head to a local hot spring and freshen up the legs for a massive final pow day.

Day 9 : Feel the stoke! Revelstoke day 2

Feel the stoke (and the leg-burn) at Revelstoke, home to the longest vertical skiing in North America, an insane 1,713 metres or 5,620 feet.

Sign up for some more cat-skiing or make the most of the wide-open alpine bowls and perfectly spaced glades, because Revelstoke's got it all.

Tonight, the group will celebrate the final night together (for those departing tomorrow at the end of part 1) by donning plaid (or checkered) shirts, growing out the beards (don't worry ladies, you'll be covered) and throwing axes like true Canadian Lumberjacks and Lumberjills.

Day 10 : Say your goodbyes or join for part 2 of The MEGA

This morning the tour continues with an incredible drive through the Canadian Rockies and through houseboat country. The alpine lakes here are enormous.

If you are only joining for part 1 of The Mega, you'll part ways today in Kelowna.

If you are staying for part 2, enjoy some free time in Kelowna utilising some recommendations from your guide, then later in the day the van will continue south onto the town of Trail. Get set for more mega days along the Powder Highway.

The Mega - Part 2

Day 1: Arrival Day /  Join Part 1 Group

The second part of the tour includes the southern portion of the Powder Highway to Trail and beyond. On arrival at your accommodation in Trail, you'll have the chance to settle in before the group heads to a local restaurant/bar.

Day 2 : RED Mountain - The first ski day

Your first day on the mountain for part 2 of the tour. Get the lay of the land with your guide plus a local who spends all winter riding the slopes at RED. They'll quickly show you the deep powder stashes and the best lines. After the morning introduction, feel free to go exploring yourself, ride with your new friends or hit up the incredible Rockstar Energy terrain park. 

Tonight you'll have some options including seeing a local hockey game, having some fun at the local aquatic & rec centre or just taking it easy.

Day 3 : RED Mountain day 2

Day two at RED. No better time than now to try out some legendary backcountry touring or save the legs and try your hand at cat-skiing.

Cat-skiing - what is it? Cats as we know them are "like a really cool shuttle service to some awesome, big mountain terrain that you'll want to lap again and again".

Tonight, you'll have multiple options including visiting some local breweries, take to the bowling lanes, go to a local rock climbing gym, or play some pub games.

Day 4 : Whitewater day 1

Rise early and make the journey to Whitewater Ski Resort. Enjoy a guided orientation with your local guide who spends their winters at Whitewater. They'll point out the best lines, secret powder stashes and more so you get the most out of your time on the mountain.

After the day at the ski resort you'll head into nearby Nelson to check in to your new hotel located on downtown Nelson's famous Baker St. You'll have access to an indoor whirlpool/hot tub for the 2-night stay plus your own queen bed.

Following the check-in, you'll head out of town, strap on some snowshoes and wander your way to a special spot in the forest. Under the quiet of the trees, you’ll gather around a roaring bonfire to tell stories, sip hot chocolate and experience the enjoyment that a winter bonfire brings (weather permitting, of course).

Day 5 : Whitewater day 2

Day two at Whitewater is the perfect opportunity to do some more backcountry tours, cat-skiing, or better yet, HELI-SKIING!! Don't worry though, there is still plenty of terrain to shred inside the resort boundaries if that's more your thing.

An epic day needs an epic night, and your guide will take you somewhere special.  

Day 6 : Rest those weary legs and see the sights

Take a break from skiing/boarding and travel from Nelson to Invermere through the Columbia Valley. Enjoy the views along the way and venture out at a few favourite spots on the journey. In the afternoon, you'll have the chance to explore town, go ice-skating on the world's longest skating trail or enjoy some free time.

This evening the group will make the short trip to Radium Hot Springs to soak in the thermal mineral springs, which is a perfect way to recuperate the body before hitting the slopes again at Panorama Mountain Resort tomorrow.

Join the group for dinner at a local restaurant-cum-bar and try the amazing twist on the classic chicken parmigiana with amazing marinara sauce.

Tonight you will stay at the Invermere Inn & Suites located right in the middle of town. Everything is so close that they actually measure the distance to nearby sights in steps, so there is no room for debate between imperial and metric.

Day 7 : Panorama day 1

After an easy and relaxing day (potentially), it's time to get back on top of the mountain at Panorama Mountain Resort. Start the day with a mountain introduction by your local guide who spends all winter riding these slopes. They'll show you the ins and outs and the best spots to maximize your time at this ski resort. Your local guide will also show you the best on-mountain lunch spots and the apres-ski hot spot.

Tonight, you'll have some free time and your guide will recommend some activities for you if you wish. These could include another relaxing soak at Radium Hot Springs, a drink at a local brewery, or a nice dinner spot.

Day 8 : Panorama day 2

Day 2 at Panorama typically means one of two things: it's time for some cat-skiing; or it's a snowmobile kind of day. Panorama is home to the Monster X Snowcat's, Jekyll & Hide. By now you may have already tried your hand at cat-skiing, but if not Panorama provides your last opportunity on the road trip. Maybe you want to try your hand at snowmobiling. Just across from the ski resort is a fantastic snowmobiling company. They have a number of options from a half-day to a full-day snowmobile adventure. With the latter you get an afternoon thrash-style freeride session in a huge alpine bowl. This will need booking in advance.

Like the sound of cat-skiing & snowmobiling?? That's not a problem, as it's possible to do one activity on the first day and the other on the second day at Panorama.

Tonight marks the final night of the MEGA winter road trip, so it seems apt to have a sweet party and relive the incredible memories that the group have made.

Day 9 : Say your goodbyes

This morning the van departs Invermere headed for Banff. You'll travel through the stunning Kootenay National Park. Keep your eyes open.

Upon arrival in Banff at approximately midday, the trip officially ends. You'll have the chance to farewell your new friends and (no doubt) make plans for your next ski trip together.

For anyone wishing to stay in Banff longer, or travelling back to Calgary, your hosts can arrange your additional travel plans.


The base price includes hand-picked, well-maintained 3* hotels with modern facilities. The hotels are in the most central locations in each town to make it easy for you to explore and live the mountain life.

Rooms are twin-share unless otherwise specified and usually have 2 queen beds in them, and all have private en-suite bathrooms.

Understandably sharing a room isn't for everyone, so there are options to upgrade to your own private room.
