Tour Hosts:
Each tour is assigned a ‘host’ from the highly entertaining and energetic SameSun staff roster. Throughout the tour, the host will provide assistance to all guests and give daily ‘briefings’ on the great ski area the tour is about to visit. Upon arrival at each ski resort, guests are given a quick tour of the base area, then left to explore the resort at their own pace. All hosts carry cell phones throughout the day, and are able to be reached at any time if needed. Entertainment and fun are the highest priority, and tour hosts strive to provide the most possible.


Tour Itinerary:

Day One (Sunday):
Arrive at our beautiful Kelowna Lodge and settle from your journeys. Meet those who are partaking on the same voyage. Equip with all necessary items (groceries, ‘beverages’…etc). Those requiring rentals are equipped. The night is spent relaxing at the hostel or at the clubs in preparation for the days ahead.

Day Two (Monday):
After an early morning pancake breakfast hop aboard the Shuttle to Silver Star @ 8:00 AM and get ready to rip up Silver Star Mountain Resort - known as "Jekyl and Hyde" for itís friendly front and double diamond backside! After a satisfying day on the slopes, ski right to the front door of the world's first custom-built ski hostel. It's loaded with everything you'd possibly need from an outdoor hot tub to the biggest common/dining area you've ever seenÖalmost 6000 square feet! Then, itís time for the snowmobile tour of a lifetime! This tour is the highlight for many individuals! Ride with the group and rip around the mountain on your own snowmobile. These machines really move and Silver Star has some of the best terrain going! Then bring your appetite back to the hostel because we have dinner waiting for you!

Day Three (Tuesday):
After a restful night at our Hostel and a hearty breaky, it’s time to hit the slopes of Silver Star again. After a full day, get ready for nice comfortable stay in a private room* in Kelowna.

Day Four (Wednesday):
Time to catch some fresh tracks at the legendary Big White Ski Resort. Load up on Pancakes and hop aboard the shuttle to hit fresh tracks when the lifts open and ride the day away. When the day is done, relax in the hot tubs and spend the night at the top of the village in our hostel, dreaming of the powder waiting in the morning.

Day Five (Thursday):
It’s another glorious day at Big White. Catch fresh tracks in the morning, hang out in the common area playing pool, video games, ping pong, watching TV, reading a book or mag, chill in the hot tubs…do whatever your heart desires! Then get ready for the wave of folks heading to the clubs for a night of rock ’n’ rollin! Then bed down for another night at the Big White Hostel.

Day Six (Friday):
Stock up at breakfast cuz this is the day to really rip it up! No line-ups, fresh tracks, amazing views and POWDER are what it’s all about in the Okanagan. Take those pictures and ride until you can ride no more! After an awesome day on the slopes, it’s off to Kelowna, to relax in style and hit the town!

Day Seven (Saturday):
A day to soak it all up. Reflect on the amazing Ski and Snowboarding BC has to offer. And to top it all off, we have a special evening planned for you. Relax in town, have a drink with your new friends and set the dates for when you’ll be back! The last night is spent in Kelowna enjoying a taste of ‘Canadiana’ at a hockey game, concert or other special event!

* The private room accommodations in Kelowna MAY be shared with one other person on the package. In any case, the maximum occupancy in Kelowna will be two people.
