Ski Buddies for ski BC perhaps Revelstoke January 20th 2011

 

Good evening. Looking for ski buddies to join for a trip to Most likely Revelstoke BC for arrival on January 20th. Then ski on 21st to 24th or so and last day do a cat ski in the area.

 

or if anyone has better suggestions of same time if your going to ski at this time, let me know

 

Going to go back here and ski again, Amazing ski here and want to experience it all over again.

 

I am planning to fly into Kelowna and drive a rental from Airport to Revelstoke.

 

If anyone is going same way will be willing to give others a lift. Perhaps chip in for gas or any thing but i can offer transportation. no problem.

 

Perhaps all hang at the village Idiot in Revelstoke lots of great options.

 

If anyone has any other ideas, forward them. as here are my dates from above

I am landing inCalgary on the 20th and driving to Castle Mountain, I was originally staying till the 24th and flying out on the 25th but Ive extended it to the 28th. skicaslte is just under 3 hrs from Kelowna but 6 or more to Revelstoke... we will see maybe meet one place or the other.

My wife teaches at Castle this winter is the main reason hahaha.

 

But tickets are cheap also and the powder from what im told is great and they have cheap cat skiing right there also.

( All second hand to me as I havnt been, I know my wife is enjoying it, )

You must be talking about a different Castle Mountain than the one that exists in the country I live in. Castle is east of Fernie, and way southeast of Revelstoke. Kelowna, last time I checked, is west or southwest of Revelstoke. Although Revelstoke is not exactly between Castle Mountain and Kelowna, it is much closer to Kelowna than Castle Mountain is. It takes 4.5 hours to get from Kelowna to Nelson, and another 5 or so to get to Castle from Nelson. The northern route, via Rogers Pass on Canada 1, would indeed take you right past Revy on your way to Castle, and would probably take just as long as going the southern way. Anyway, it's something like 8 or 9 (or 10) hours from Kelowna to Castle, not 3.
