HAPPY SNOWY XMAS FROM KICKING HORSE POWDER TOURS
I know it’s only Boxing Day, but I’ve eaten my turkey, opened my presents, watched Downton (twice) and been for a walk…so now there’s nothing else to do, except send you my Xmas newsletter and wish you a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!.
SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW
Let’s start off by stating the obvious…
IT’S SNOWING IN CANADA!
It’s been impossible to avoid noticing from the snow reports and news the fact that Canada’s Powder Highway has seen an epic snowfall start to this season and at the time of writing there is no let up…
IT’S SNOWING LOADS AT KICKING HORSE!
Kicking Horse has been featured heavily over the last few weeks in the Worlds Press as being in the Top 3 North American ski resorts for snowfalls – and Revelstoke & Lake Louise are pretty damn good as well.
There is 10cms forecast in the next few days at KH, Louise & Revelstoke, so we continue to be in the middle of it all.
IT’S GOING TO KEEP SNOWING!
Forecasts for the continuing season are looking good with Jan & Feb promising higher than average snowfalls according to the people in the know.
IT’S SNOWING JUST FOR YOU!
Jan and early Feb are fairly quiet times to come to Canada so with pretty quiet slopes and lots of virgin off piste you will be spoilt for fresh lines to choose from!
ITS GREAT VALUE!
The Canadian Dollar exchange rate continues to offer fantastic value for money for overseas visitors so there is no better time to take advantage of ‘The Pound in your Pocket*’ and spend it on powder skiing.

So…with Europe suffering a really poor start to the season (sorry Europe) and your new ‘Christmas Pressie to self Powder Skis or Snowboard’ whispering sweet nothings in your ear there is only one thing to do…
BOOK A SKIING TRIP WITH US & GET ON A PLANE TO CANADA!
