2. The Vehicle

You’ll be road tripping in style in a brand new, 2020 Ford 10-seater passenger van. There is lots of room for your luggage as long as you pack smart. So kick back and enjoy the tunes, scenery and good company.

I called Shotgun! Sitting up front comes with its duties: DJ, navigator, beverage holder; keep the driver on point, the music thumping, and the ride pointed in the right direction and it’s all good.

3. First and Final Nights

First Night — We will be meeting at our hotel in downtown Vancouver on Friday, January 15th. You can either fly into Vancouver on this day, or take a bus from Whistler if you’re riding with us already. Hotel check-in is from 3pm. A taxi from the airport to the hotel is roughly $35. We start the road trip early on Saturday morning.

Final Night — We will all return to downtown Vancouver on the evening of Saturday, January 24th and stay overnight in a hotel (included in the camp). Check-out is 11am on Sunday. On Sunday, you’re welcome to come up to Whistler or take a taxi back to the airport.

4. A Message from Turner

We’ve spent full year planning this particular camp. We’ve discussed all the possible routes, took into consideration several different ski resorts and towns, their locations, sizes, terrain and much more.

We’ve put together what we believe is the best overall plan to maximize the riding and good times.

We realize that we can’t go to every ski resort in BC — there are simply too many.

5. Accommodation Details

The right accommodation plays a big part in this road trip. We’ve spent some time researching and booked for you some very authentic, historic and charming Inns, lodges and hotels. Each Inn is either very near or right in the centre of each town.

  • The hotel in Abbotsford has a pool, hot tub and waterslide.
  • The Inn and Saloon in Rossland is authentic as it gets.
  • The Inn in Nelson is central and cozy.
  • The Inn in Revelstoke is in the centre of the town, has a great pub and includes full access to the Aquatic Centre (200m walk) with pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room etc.

6. Visas

We will be going to Mt Baker (in the USA) on Day 2 so you may need to apply for a visitor or ESTA visa for the USA before entry. Please give yourself plenty of time to apply.

Please check to see if you need the ESTA visa — https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/ for the USA. 
Please make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months on your arrival date.

7. What to Pack — How to Prepare

Please limit your gear to 1 ski or snowboard bag, 1 piece of luggage and 1 backpack.

Please try to pack lighter than usual as this is a road trip. Bring all of your regular ski or snowboard gear (as you would for Whistler) and your essentials. There are laundry facilities at most of our hotels.

Bring your swim suit for the hotel hot tubs and natural hot springs.

Bring your transceiver, probe, shovel & backpack. Some of these resorts have some great side-country terrain accessed by some short hikes. The only way to ride this terrain is to have all of the necessary backcountry safety gear. If you do not have this gear we suggest you borrow it, rent it in Whistler (if you’re here beforehand) or you can choose to add the rental gear to your camp for $25/day ($225 total). We’ll have it ready for you.

Please work on your cardiovascular and be ready for potential hikes on some of the days.

8. The Resorts

Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts the most vertical in North America (more vertical than Whistler). It’s got some of the least crowded slopes because it’s one of the more difficult resorts to access in terms of location. For advanced and expert skiers and riders the big appeal is plenty of steep lines. And this is one of the few places where lift, cat and heliskiing are all possible from the one resort.

Whitewater Ski Resort near Nelson is the powder skiing capital of BC. With open bowls, steep chutes, tree skiing and groomed slopes, it has something for everyone.

9. Cancellation Policy

Our cancellation policy for this Road Trip Camp is different from our Whistler Camps.

A cancellation inside 90 days of the camp start date is not entitled to a refund.

We do not offer refunds after a camp start date.
Your deposit is non-refundable and cannot be transferred to a different camp if you have to cancel.

For these reasons we HIGHLY recommend that you purchase Trip Interruption / Cancellation Insurance. This will cover the cost of your camp (and/or deposit) in case you need to cancel or cannot finish your camp for any reason. It’s easy to purchase and very good peace of mind.

We recommend World Nomads or check with your local insurance company.
