GET STEEP AND DEEP AT THE BEST RESORTS ON THE FAMOUS POWDER HIGHWAY DURING THIS EPIC 18 NIGHT ROAD TRIP.
The winter of 21/22 is shaping up to be the season of the road-trip.
With so many world class resorts to ride in, Canada leaves us spoilt for choice when it comes to waist deep champagne powder, mind blowing tree runs, elite freestyle parks and amazing vibes in general.
Split across 2 parts, The Epic tour features two days of riding in the best Canadian resorts on the Mountain Collective & Ikon pass, plus stops at our favourite Powder Highway resorts. Over the course of 18 days, we'll travel deep into the heart of powderhound heaven, hitting all the secret local spots and progressing your riding with our guides along the way. We've dialled in this road trip to get in as many days riding as possible so you can make the most of your passes and time.
The best part about The Epic is that you can choose Part 1 or Part 2 for a regional focus, or select both parts of this huge road trip to clock the best riding that Canada has to offer. Whatever option you choose, we guarantee a once in a lifetime experience exploring the best skiing & snowboarding in Canada and a whole lotta great memories with your newly found skiing & snowboarding pals!
Starting in our hometown of Banff, we'll ensure your timely arrival and make sure you're all checked in, followed a team dinner and a chance to meet our new riding pals and guide, discussing all the awesomeness for the weeks ahead.
In Banff, we'll have 6 days with minimal driving to make the most of our local mountains with 2 days at Sunshine Village & Lake Louise, followed by an epic day at the home of the Freeride World Tour, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. These first 6 days of riding gets us dialled in for the rest of the trip & offers a chance to experience the amazing mountain lifestyle, scenery, wildlife & nightlife on offer in the famous towns of Banff & Lake Louise.
From Kicking Horse we make our way through the jaw-dropping scenery of Glacier National Park to our next destination, Revelstoke. Along the way we'll stop at some natural hot springs to recuperate our legs for the days of steep and deep powder riding ahead.
Revelstoke holds the record for the most snowfall in Canada in a single winter at 80 ft or a whopping 2,438 cm, and the Resort's slopes are blanketed in an average of 10.5 metres of powder every winter, so we hope you packed your snorkels!
On the final day of Part. 1, we depart Revelstoke early to arrive in Kelowna around 12pm to farewell those who are sadly leaving us at this point. Those who are continuing onto Part 2 will be able to enjoy brewery hopping, ice skating, shopping or relaxing before we hit the road again.
We welcome our new squad members joining us for Pt. 2 of The Epic and hit the road to quirky & charming Rossland for 2 days of epic powder riding & $10 cat-skiing at Red Mountain Resort.
Red Mountain Resort is famous for it's uncrowded, deep powder fall line skiing & snowboarding and Rossland has been voted as the best ski town in North America, so you can expect nothing short of a great time!
After a couple of days exploring Red's extensive terrain, we make the short journey up the road for 2 days at Whitewater Ski Resort and the eclectic town of Nelson, nestled deep in the Selkirk Mountains.
At Whitewater, mother nature blankets the resort in over 40 feet of snow annually, yet there are no snowmaking machines to be found. What you will find though is 2044 feet of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and some of the best glade riding on the planet at your feet.
Following 4 straight days of deep powder riding, even the most bulletproof riders legs need a little TLC. So, on our way from Nelson to our next stop at Panorama we'll stop at some local secret hot springs for a nice relaxing dip, before arriving in Invermere that evening.
Our final stop for 2 days, Panorama, sits on the edge of the Canadian Rockies and is famous for its jaw-dropping scenery and the epic tree and powder riding in the Extreme Dream Zone.
On the final day of Pt.2, we depart Panorama early to enjoy the scenery and arrive back in Banff around midday for those who are staying longer, then continue on to Calgary for a 2pm arrival for those leaving.
