Ski and Board Trips in BC

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

With snow on everyone’s mind right now, and with the local mountains slightly occupied this February, I thought I would find out a bit more about going on a ski getaway.

The very first time I strapped on a pair of skis (which was also the last time I strapped on a pair of skis) I was on a school trip to Blackcomb back in 1992. The beauty of the big group trip to a ski resort is that there are so many activities and things to do so if you don’t end up being a fantastic skier (and say, end up being a snowboarder instead) you can still have a fantastic time.

Destination Snow has been in the ski trip business for 11 years and has grown to be the largest group ski & snowboard tour operator in British Columbia. When you book a package with a group tour operator like Destination Snow, usually you have the following included: 2 nights accommodation at a resort hotel, 2 day lift pass for the mountain, round trip deluxe bus transportation, movies & prizes along the way in the bus, daily ski or board tours with a guide.

Cameron said that they make it easier on people, you don’t need to worry about accommodation and especially about driving to these fabulous resorts (whose highways might not always be the friendliest in the dead of winter). Destination Snow currently operates trips to Sun Peaks, Big White, Silver Star, Revelstoke, and Whistler so you can choose your getaway accordingly.

They are also currently offering $50 off per person for trips January 8th-10th and January 15th-17th to Big White. Book now and just enter the code: “Facebook” to get the discount.

Ski and board trips are a great way to get out and see the rest of what BC has to offer in terms of mountain resorts with fresh powder.

My 16th boarding season will begin up on Mount Seymour however I will be heading on a Destination Snow trip with my girl Keira-Anne later this season.

    Snow trips are the greatest part about living in BC for sure. This winter I have trips booked to Whistler, Sun Peaks and Big White. The really adventurous should try Heli-skiing or heli-boarding up in Bella Coola, very cool.
