CANADA SKI ROAD TRIP
Experience British Columbia skiing like never before, the ultimate powder skiing adventure!
In our Canada Road trip, we’ll visit some of British Columbia’s best ski resorts, a powder paradise. The trip begins in Calgary where we meet up and head off for good times. We have targeted the unique BC resorts of Fernie, Whitewater, Red Mountain, Revelstoke and Kicking Horse.
All resorts are connected with small towns, big opportunities, monster burgers and inspiring mountains to explore with knowledgeable guides.
Our travel concept is based on the feeling of traveling with like-minded friends, all with the goal of having the best ski tour as possible in the powder, trees and off-piste. This is regardless of whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or with a larger group of friends.
Our guests do not have to think about details, they just need to be excited to ski with us at Outdoor Norway and experience Western Canada at its best. This is considered the most valuable ski tour package in Canada, your ski holidays handled by professional who is passionate for what they do!

BEST WAY TO USE/GET LOCAL CURRENCY
Generally, the best way to get local currency is to use local ATMs when you arrive. Your bank will usually charge you a small fee to do this (typically around $5), and you may also get charged a fee by the local bank, but you will generally get a reasonable exchange rate (as opposed to local banks or money exchange desks).
Since you’re getting charged fees we recommend taking out a few days worth of local currency at a time, and an amount that you would feel comfortable carrying around (e.g. $100-$200). No point in taking out $500 to avoid $5 of ATM fees!

Mark Basso is our guide chief and will unravel the secret BC spots with his happy mood.
Born in Penticton, British Columbia. Mark has been a competitive skier and professional whitewater paddler for over 20 years. Born and raised in the mountains near Revelstoke, he is very familiar with the ski resorts as well as the ins and outs of the local communities that we visit.
Now residing in Bergen and Voss since 2008, Mark also has a very strong relationship with the outdoor recreation community in Norway as well as in many parts of Western Canada and the USA.
Along with Mark we will provide other guide during our travels to Canada during the winter. It is thanks to these skiing wizards that we dare say that we have the best guides out there that will take care of your ski holiday.
What to expect
Step into a winter world of mountains as far as the eye can see, towering spruce trees buried under a heavy blanket of snow. As your tips dig through the snow you throw a big turn between two trees, and smiling ear to ear.
This is a world class ski tour!
F.A.Q. - CANADA SKI ROAD TRIP with Outdoor Norway and our answers.
- Swimming clothes ( to wear underneath the wetsuit)
- Thermal underwear if cold
- Change of clothes (for after the rafting tour)
Weather limitations: Whitewater rafting is a great activity to do on sunny or rainy day’s
No, you don’t. Most of our guests are first-timers and our trips, equipment, and briefings are designed to put beginners at ease. Our experienced guides will provide a safety orientation before you get on the snow and coach you the whole way through skiing on snow. No previous skiing experience is necessary.
We recommend that all of our rafters be in good physical health.
If you have a medical issue but you still want to go rafting, we always recommend you check with your doctor first.
There is no maximum age limit for our skiing tours – so long as you’re physically fit you’re welcome aboard!
Our scenic float is also an amazing experience for anyone.
Tip is not a regular thing in Norway as it’s in USA. Your guide works hard to ensure that you have a fun, yet safe rafting adventure and always committed to the Outdoor Norway high standard guided tour.
Tip is widely accepted as the industry norm; and tipping is always appreciated but never expected. It stays totally at your own discretion.
We start skiing as soon as the ice is on the mountains, and up until the snow falls ends! This is usually between the start of Dec to the end of April. It’s all depending on Mother Nature!
