5 Days to Play Tour
Fly into Terrace, BC. You’ll be picked up from airport by me, Hayley, and taken to Skeena River House, a gorgeous locally-owned Bed and Breakfast. Food is very (very) important to Adventure Camp. After booking you will be contacted to collaborate on a menu. Northern BC is famous for wild-caught salmon and haddock, and we choose organic meat and vegetables. Dinner is cooked in-house, family style, so you can help out or just relax, get to know the group and get stoked for the adventure to come! Price stated is for double occupancy, but single occupancy can definitely be arranged.
After a home cooked breakfast, you are shuttled just 20 minutes to Shames Mountain, famous for massive dumps of snow – 475 inches annually actually, making it one of the deepest, most consistent snow packs in North America. We will get orientated and meet our local rider, who will spend the rest of the day showing us their favourite and secret locations on the hill. Lunch is taken on the hill, and that night we stay back at the Skeena River House to cook and eat as a group, reminiscing about the day’s sweet pow.
6am breakfast today before we set out on the 90 minute drive to Skeena Cat Skiing. Prepare yourself for an extreme day of backcountry skiing and boarding, without any of that pesky uphill exertion! It goes like this: We ride into some big terrain in a passenger cat. Get dropped off at the top of a line. Ride down, shedding all the way. Get picked up at the bottom. With that powder now destroyed, we venture off to find fresh slopes. And we do this an average of 11 times! This is what we locals like to do on special occasions, weekends, workdays or really whenever we can! I honestly can’t recommend cat skiing enough! Lunch is provided, brown paper bag style and is eaten in the cat whenever we are heading up for more runs.
Wake up fresh and ready for, sadly, your last day on the snow. We breakfast on local free run eggs, sausages, toast, pancakes, fruit, coffee, tea and juice then it’s just a quick 20 minutes up to Hudson Bay Mountain Resort. My favourite way to ride Hudson Bay Mountain is in the glades, and the best part is there are no crowds, just friendly locals. We will meet our host for the day and spend the day boarding and skiing , enjoying the Northern hospitality. Lunch is taken on the mountain. We ski until the lifts close or until you drop. Whichever comes first.
After a quick shower and change, we hit Main St in Smithers to explore the local bars and restaurants. Smithers has an Alpine feel and is the perfect way to celebrate our awesome group and the awesome adventure we have shared.
Following breakfast, we drive 2 hours back to Terrace for your flight home. You’ll be missed (until next time)!Register Now!
