    • 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.

    • What if i'm not interested in skiing? Are there other things to do?

      The Ski locations, Whistler and Banff, both have plenty of great things to do other than Ski and are wonderful destinations in their own right. The itinerary also mentions a host of other activities that you'll be doing on the tour, so while the trip goes to Ski locations, it looks like it would be up to you as to how you spend your time.

    • What is intra tour air tax?

      The intra tour air tax covers the air taxes for the flights included on this tour. It's imposed by the airlines and therefore needs to be paid before the tour departs to secure your flight as a part of this tour.
