Nonstop Fun on Canada’s Skifields

With the 2014/15 winter season just around the corner, Nonstop Ski & Snowboard, specialist in performance camps and instructor courses in Western Canada's powder-heavy resorts, has launched a variety of new breaks. These include the industry's first one week Ready to Heli course as well as ski and snowboard improvement camps in Revelstoke, British Columbia's rising star.

The ultimate off-piste adventure, the one week Ready to Heli course will teach you all you need to know to master skiing or riding in untouched powder. Taking you from a relative off-piste novice to being dropped at the top of a mountain by helicopter in just one week, this is the first camp of its kind to offer 'Ready to Heli' tuition for skiers and snowboarders over just seven days.

This one week camp combines four days of intensive off-piste coaching from a specialist Nonstop instructor, including  an exhilarating day CAT skiing, gliding through untracked powder. The course comes to a climax with the ultimate adrenaline rush, a day with the prestigious rk heliski in the Purcell Mountain range, famed for its dry and light snowfall and the highest landings in Canadian heliskiing. With the ideal preparation, you will confidently make fresh tracks down some of the finest pristine powder in Western Canada, whether it's on the open glacier runs or through the glades.

Prices start from £1,950 (US$3,056) per person for the one week Ready to Heli camp, available to both skiers and snowboarders, based on twin share. Most guests are solo travellers, who are matched up with suitable roommates. The price includes seven nights' accommodation on a B&B basis, three evening meals, lift pass for Fernie Alpine Resort, airport transfers, and all tuition and activities as per itinerary. Price excludes flights, but Nonstop can assist with flight arrangements as an optional extra. The course runs February 28 to March 7, 2015.

Return skiers might like to look at one of North America’s rising stars for their next ski adventure. Despite boasting the longest vertical in North America and over 3,000 acres of pristine terrain, Revelstoke has very much remained an off-the-beaten track resort reserved for those in the know. The laid-back vibe and impressive snow record has led to Nonstop introducing its first two week performance camp here for the 2014/15 winter season; offering those keen to improve their skiing or snowboarding the opportunity to spend a fortnight receiving tuition from senior Nonstop coaches.

Improve your technique and confidence with this two week course that's big on terrain and offers more untracked powder than you can imagine. With lift, CAT, heli, and backcountry ski and snowboarding on offer from the one base, it's easy to see why Revelstoke is creating quite a buzz.

Prices start from £2,445 (US$3,832) per person for the two week Improvement Camp, including 14 nights' accommodation, eight days of professional coaching with a specialist Nonstop instructor, lift pass for Revelstoke Mountain Resort, and optional days of CAT and heli skiing.
