Coaching

It's not very often that you are treated to bottomless powder when you're on holiday. This means that when you do finally experience it, it's difficult to know how to make the best of it.

 

During your one or two week long course, our all-mountain specialist instructors spend days with you, showing you the skills that will allow you to ride confidently and seriously enjoy in un-tracked snow.

 

This is all gearing up to your heli boarding trip on the last day of your stay.

Cat Boarding

Midway through your stay, we'll take you cat-boarding to get a taste of what lies ahead.

 

BC's Fernie Wilderness Adventures is well known for huge snow falls and great tree runs. You spend the day being driven around the mountain in a Cat before getting into the fresh powder and laying down your own lines.

 

This is the ideal way to put the skills you have learnt into practice early on in your trip, to prepare for the ultimate off piste adventure at its climax at the end of your stay. 

Heli Day

At last, the day will come, your opportunity to experience what will probably be the best day of your life! You'll be staying in Panorama the night before the big day, so you'll be fresh and ready to go.

 

You will head into the backcountry in a heli to experience the greatest that off piste snowboarding can offer. This day is what dreams are made of. 

Highlights

Not just about the heli ski day, your trip will be packed full of other awesome experiences, from apres ski socials with your new friends to getting first tracks on the ski hill before the lifts open to the public.
