More Information

DAY 1 Vancouver to Whistler, British Colombia

Instructions: press nose to window in the ever-so-pretty Stanley Park before we make the beautiful drive to Whistler along the Sea to Sky Highway (cue jaw-dropping views of the mountains and Howe Sound). The Whistler nightlife will be waiting for you and your new Topdeck family post-dinner.


DAY 2 Whistler

Welcome to the holy grail of ski resorts. Whether you’re a pro-planker (skier) or complete beginner, you’ve got two days to show the slopes who’s boss. Fancy some optional skiing or snowboarding lessons? You got it. There’s also a peak-to-peak gondola with amazing views of Whistler’s soaring mountains, glaciers and forests. After all that action, there’s the après-ski to wind down (or up) with. Did you know? Whistler has one of North America’s best après bars – and loads of live music venues, too.


DAY 3 Whistler

Eat. Sleep. Ski. Repeat. Or, you could always take it easy and soak up the après vibes. Craving an adrenaline rush? Then say yes to some optional ziplining. Tonight, there’s an optional Whistler nightlife tour to get on board with, so dress to impress.


DAY 4 Whistler to Kelowna

Watch the scenery change from white to green as we take the scenic route through Fraser Valley and over the Coquihalla Pass. Our next stop? British Columbia’s biggest wine region, Kelowna. Fact: Kelowna means ‘grizzly bear’ in Salish. Who knew?


DAY 5 Kelowna (Big White day trip)

Big White is a big deal: it’s the highest peak in the Okanagan Highland, and it’s also home to Western Canada’s largest night skiing area. Here, there are tubing and ice skating opportunities - not to mention the skiing and snowboarding. And if the Kelowna Rockets ice hockey team are playing, there’s the chance to see them take to their skates.


DAY 6 Kelowna (Big White day trip)

Today, we make the journey back up to Big White for another round of flawless pow. Need a confidence boost? Take the optional ski or snowboard lessons and you’ll be shredding like a pro in no time. If you’d rather feel the wind in your hair on a cross-country jaunt, hop on a snowmobile tour and soak up the alpine vistas. You won’t regret it!


DAY 7 Kelowna to Banff, Alberta

Straddle the Continental Divide as you saddle up for Kicking Horse Pass. It’s high, it’s picturesque, and it takes you to Lake Louise for a pitstop. Think cobalt blue waters, glacier-clad peaks and you’ll be somewhere close! Then, it’s up and onwards to the majestic Glacier National Park. Expect alpine scenery, ancient forests and a little (read: big) slice of paradise. Banff is up next, so get pumped.


DAY 8 Banff

Banff is National Geographic on steroids: picture perfect in every way, and the ideal place to spend a free day. Ready to ride? Three world-class ski resorts are yours to choose from. However you spend your day, we’ll round things off with a muscle-relieving dip in the hot springs. All together now: ahhhhh.


DAY 9 Banff

It’s your last full day in the Great White North, so make it count with an optional ride on the Banff Gondola. Trust us, the views of the Bow Valley and its mountain surrounds will give you goosebumps. Tonight, there’s a final dinner with the crew (try not to get too emosh).


DAY 10 Banff or Calgary

After breakfast, take your last look at the Rocky Mountain-dominated skyline and put away your thermals: the time has come to bid farewell to your Topdecker brethren. Heading to Calgary airport? There’s a shuttle bus on hand.
