Destination Snow has launched a new express bus service especially for skiers and snowboarders. The express bus links Seattle, Wash., and Vancouver, B.C., with two Okanagon resorts: Big White and Silver Star.

The buses begin service with the first tour Dec. 5-7. Tours run most weekends throughout the season from Vancouver. One December and one February trip depart from Seattle.

Every bus has two Destination Snow tour guides aboard to give you the inside scoop on the resorts. The guides also will lead you on free mountain tours at the resorts.

Tour packages, which include accommodations, are designed for two or three nights. Two-day lift tickets and round trip transportation are both included. Apres ski events, movies, prizes, and entertainment on the bus are part of the package, too.  

"Our clients are telling us they want all-inclusive quick getaways where they can relax, enjoy a movie, and leave the driving to someone else at an affordable price," said Cameron Mein, President of Destination Snow, in a press release. "By teaming up with Big White and Silver Star, we feel we have accomplished that."

Tour prices start at CAD$249 per person and US$299. Call (604) 532-1088 or (877) 507-5596 for more information and package options.
