This trip runs from March 1 to 8, 2023
This is a repeat trip. We can't get enough of these hidden gems on the famous Powder Highway. It takes some stamina to get there, but long roads lead to good people and skiing.
Start your adventure at RED Mountain. This place is for skiing purists. It is located in the beautiful Monashee mountain range, a short drive from the fun and rustic town of Rossland, and offers 3850 acres of pristine skiing unfettered by overdevelopment. Experience 'pay as you go' cat skiing on Mt. Kirkup, enjoy food and entertainment at Rafters at the base, rest your head at The Josie Hotel each night, and ski right from your door each morning. Add in some new mountain-enthusiast friends, and you may decide never to leave this charming destination:)
But you will leave to visit a one-of-a-kind ski resort that has been considered by Powder Magazine as “one of best powder mountains on the continent" - Whitewater or WH2O. Located in the Selkirk Mountains just outside of Nelson, Whitewater Ski Resort is graced with an average of 40-plus feet of light, dry snow every season. Its abundance of natural terrain is spread over 1,184 acres with 2,045 feet of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and glades. At this no-frills resort crowds lift lines are virtually non-existent, and the snow, vibe, and food are exceptional. Stay in Nelson lakeside by night and ski WH2O by day.
That's two Powder Highway hidden gems in British Columbia in one trip! Don't delay. Reserve your spot soon.
