The winter season is well and truly underway on Canada’s Powder Highway.

Its been a snowy one to date with good early season snowfall followed through, to date, with some good big dumps of the white stuff.

There lots of ski days left in the season yet though so don’t worry if you haven’t decided on this winters destination quite yet – you can still get out with us if you want to!

We currently have availability still on our Emily Sarsfield hosted Lodge trip in March which is set to be a great week of resort & off piste skiing, combined with good food, fine wine and great company.

We also have some just released extra availability for Cat skiing trips at the end of March, over the Easter period, with Chatter Creek Cat Skiing. We’ve combined 2, 3 & 5 day cat skiing options with some 7 & 10 day hosted stays at Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse, making for some really fantastic and great value trips.
