If you like to spend your winter break charging through waist-deep powder, you’ll meet your match with our newest Canadian adventure.
The clue is in the name with the BC Powder Experience. With an incredible 40% off-piste terrain, Whitewater is renowned for powder hunting and its remote nature means that you won’t be held back by any long queues. The location also makes it one of the best snow zones in Canada, far enough from the coast to get dry powder but close enough to get plenty of snowfall.
Ski Club leader John Haddon will be on hand to help skiers explore countless fun and challenging routes across the Kootenay Mountain region. He says: “The skiing is a mix of steep chutes, long gladed runs and challenging moguls. Everything is near the tree line so there’s always good visibility.”
The BC Powder Experience trip includes three days with mountain guides in resort followed by two days of guided cat skiing which will grant you access to those hard-to-reach powder stashes. Think of a cat as a glorified chairlift: dry, warm and comfortable, but with no queues and no pistes. Cat skiing is a fantastic way to access untouched Canadian powder and many people prefer it to heliskiing as there’s no time pressures, and it’s almost weather independent. The resort itself has a traditional community feel which makes it easy to unwind and relax, and the locals are quick to make visitors feel at ease. You can expect service with a genuine smile.
