Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Does this include the cost of airfare from Vancouver to Calgary within the tour?

      There is an internal air price included which covers the cost of your internal flights on The Powder Rush and needs to be paid upfront before the tour departs. This covers the flight from Whistler on Day 5.

    • Are lift tickets for whistler and Banff included in the price?

      The lift tickets for whistler and Banff are not included in the price.

    • What are the chances of the tour not pushing through?

      It is not very common but sometimes in rare circumstances tours do get cancelled due to low numbers. This is quite a popular tour and therefore, again, it is unlikely but possible. If Contiki did have to cancel it they would know well in advance- usually 6 months out so if you need to change your plans you would have sufficient time to do so.
