What to Expect

British Columbia’s world-famous Powder Highway lies between the Monashee, Selkirk, Purcell and Kootenay mountain ranges in eastern B.C., near the border with Alberta and the United States.

The area is renowned for having the highest concentration of ski resorts in the world, as well as dozens of backcountry cat-ski and heli-ski operators. These locations annually receive huge quantities of champagne dust, characteristic of B.C., from which the region takes its name. This smooth, dry snow creates the perfect conditions for snowboarding and most locations on the Powder Highway receive up to 80 feet of snow in a season.

We will tear through about 1500 km of incredible landscapes that are worth seeing once in a lifetime!

Program

We keep a rough plan because we want to be flexible in order to offer you the best experience possible, so we’ll follow weather changes hunting the best and deepest powder

Consider arriving on the same day as departure thanks to the time zone.

Independent arrival at Calgary airport (Alberta) where you’ll find Olly and Bubba waiting for you. We load up the cars and move out to our first destination, the small village of Lake Louise.

We dedicate the first day of snowboarding to the most famous resort in Alberta, discovering Lake Louise.

A day snowboarding in the cold and dusty Kicking Horse, the resort that hosted the freeride world tour! Arriving at the top of the highest lift, we take a few steps off of the groomed slopes, and find ourselves in a whole new world, untamed.

Revelstoke and finally in B.C.! The name should ring some bells. Surrounded by pine trees covered with snow frosting, this place has the greatest altitude difference in North America, approximately 1700 m. Forget about doing a full run without stopping to catch your breath.
Today we have more options, based on the weather we can choose whether to split around Revelstoke or rent snowmobiles to look for pristine areas further off the resort.
We take a rest day and go on a long drive towards Nelson through spectacular woods and lagoons.
A stone’s throw from Nelson, today we explore White Water, a small resort with great potential thanks to the playful conformation of its terrain. After snowboarding we return to Nelson, a picturesque town with a genuine cool vibe where it is worth spending at least two nights.
Red Mountain is a large resort with possible descents on the opposite side of the lifts where we will leave a car for recovery at the end of the day, after which we will travel to beautiful Fernie!
We’re excited to go back to Fernie and take you to one of its famous snow-filled bowls and enjoy their craft beers at the end of the day.
In the morning, depending on flight times, we can kill some time hanging out and shopping in Fernie, then leave for the airport.
