Powder Ski Safari
Discover BC’s deepest powder as you bound through alpine bowls in Kicking Horse and find heli-ski heaven in Revelstoke.
With phenomenal amounts of champagne powder, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke have some of Canada’s steepest terrain. If you love your skiing steep and deep, this is the ultimate ski safari.
With huge vertical, Kicking Horse holds legendary status in British Colombia. You’ll find the best powder in its four alpine bowls, while 80% of the pistes are graded intermediate to expert. Another thing this resort does well is lift access - the main gondola is right by the village, so it’s easy to hop on in the morning for first tracks.
A stunning drive through Glacier National Park, Revelstoke receives more than 12 metres of snow each year. It’s also one of the only resorts in the world where you can lift-ski, cat-ski and heli-ski from the same base - it’s best to book in advance through our office.
On your final day, we recommend a night in Banff. With its bustling vibe and excellent restaurants, this national park town a great place to spend your last evening, and puts you within easy reach of the airport.
This sample itinerary is our suggestion of how you could divide your time between the resorts.
All our ski safaris are completely customisable, and you can adjust the itinerary to suit your preferences - whether that means more time in Kicking Horse, Revelstoke or Banff.
Land in Calgary, pick up your hire car and drive three hours to Kicking Horse.
Kicking Horse - Look forward to five days of seeking out powder stashes in the alpine bowls. It’s possible to do five top-to-bottom runs a day here, so expect some serious thigh burn. Spend your evenings sharing ski stories in the rustic town of Golden (15-min shuttle ride).
Road-trip - Drive three hours to Revelstoke through the Selkirk Mountains via Roger’s Pass, in Glacier National Park. Revelstoke is an hour behind Kicking Horse, so wind your clock back and enjoy a longer day.
Revelstoke - Ski Canada’s highest lift-served vertical drop or spend a day cat or heli-skiing. You’ve got some of Canada’s best tree skiing, while the vibrant town is a great place to spend your evenings.
Drive back over Roger’s Pass to Banff (four hours) for your final night. There are more than 100 bars and restaurants here, from Wild Bill’s saloon to fine dining at the Fairmont. You could even extend your trip and stay longer to ski at Sunshine Village.
