Nonstop courses are based in some of the best resorts in the Canadian Rockies. These include Fernie, Red Mountain, Banff (Lake Louise, Sunshine and Norquay) and Revelstoke as the bases for our courses as well as also visiting Kicking Horse, Sun Peaks and Whistler on our Snow Safaris. Further afield we also have courses in Treble Cone in Wanaka, New Zealand and Serre Chevalier in France. The Canadian Rockies are renowned for their abundance of champagne powder, varied and challenging terrain, and the laid back friendly atmosphere.
For more info on the resorts please check out the relevant individual resort pages.
No. Although there are many French speaking regions across Canada, English is the main language spoken in Western Canada where our resorts are based. There are many French speaking Quebecois living in the Rockies due to the superior ski terrain and snow conditions found in Western Canada.
In Alberta (where Banff is located) the legal drinking age is 18. In order to drink alcohol in British Columbia (where Fernie, Red and our other Canadian resorts are located) you have to be 19 years old.
NB: As in many countries across the world, bars will accept photo identification as proof of age. They are very strict and some of our older clients get caught out initially having not taken their ID!
Depending on the exchange rate, Canada can be a relatively inexpensive place to live. Unlike some European resorts, the restaurants, bars and shops in Canadian resorts are well priced and sometimes cheaper than back home. Prices vary year on year but give us a call to chat about them.
We look forward to speaking with you.
