All reserved places will be added as a note to your room booking and a 48 hour cancellation policy applies.

Your guide, Sean, will be able to process payments of cash or credit. Please pay Sean on the day.

No-shows: We really appreciate West Coast Wonders offering these tours at this very special rate and we’d like to keep this wonderful experience for you and the rest of our guests. If you book a place and do not show up without giving 48 hours notice you will be charged full price for the tour on checkout.

All abilities are welcome (expect 2.5 hours of easy – moderate walking in deep snow).
You’re going to be out in the snow for a few hours so ski gear is a good idea. Ski pants, ski jacket, layers (decide what layers to wear on the day, it’s best to look at valley temperatures on the morning of the tour), hiking/waterproof boots, and warm socks. Bring a backpack with water and snacks, as well as gloves, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera.

No denim. Snow sticks to denim and makes you cold, wet, and uncomfortable.
