What to Expect
Frequently Asked Questions
The Operator normally uses a 22 seater Toyota Coaster, with a trailer for all your gear. As they only fill the bus to a maximum of 16 people, there are always some extra seats to lounge about!
The guide will make amendments to the tour route on the rare occasions that any mountains are shut or have very poor conditions – going to a different mountain if at all possible. If not possible, they will refund the wholesale rate for your lift pass.
If you choose to ski, your skis, boots and poles will be included. If you choose to snowboard, your board and boots will be included. If you would like to add on clothing hire as well, you can do this for an additional cost.
Skis are from 4FRNT, Atomic and Salomon. Boards are from Burton and Academy. Poles are from Scott. Clothing is from Aggression and ski boots are from Nordica.
Equipment will be hired on the morning of day one and you will have the same gear for the duration of the tour which means you can get used to it and hence progress much quicker. Your gear will be matched to suit your ability and experience.
Pants, jacket and goggles which you keep for the week.
The Operator strongly recommends taking out travel insurance once you have booked your tour.
Your guide will supply a continental breakfast each morning of your tour. This will consist of cereal, toast, spreads, yogurt, fruit, tea, coffee and juice.
Lunches and dinners are at your own expense. The guides know the best places in each town and city depending on your budget and what you are after, and they will point these out on the way into each location.
You can bring a suitcase or backpack up to 20kg. We will have a trailer where you can store this as you travel around.
You can also bring a day pack which you can have in the van with you. If you will have more luggage than this, send The Operator an email and they can check if there will be room in the trailer for any extra bags.
Alternatively, if you are starting and finishing in the same location, you may be able to store your bag at the hostel while you are on tour.
