SKI SEASON IS COMING AND WE ARE READY
It can be challenging travelling in the winter and even more so crossing the border. We have confirmed a Spokane Airport Shuttle, facilitated by Kootenay Gateway Mountain Shuttle, that will run 7 days a week, December 13, 2019 to March 29, 2020, to safely and affordably get you to where you want to go – skiing in Nelson or Rossland. Or if you want to head south to shop or explore other destinations, use the shuttle as a locals’ means of transportation.
Whitewater Ski Resort, Red Mountain Resort, Tourism Rossland and Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism are delighted to continue offering this Spokane Shuttle service in association with Kootenay Gateway Mountain Shuttle’s services.
We have been offering the Spokane shuttle service for the past 7 years, which runs between Nelson, Rossland and the Spokane Airport, during the ski season. By making it easier to visit the area, using a shuttle, we are encouraging more destination travellers to book ski holidays to the West Kootenays.
Dianna Ducs, Executive Director of Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism said that “we have been so pleased with the success of this service and have effectively doubled the number of passengers in the past few years to Nelson and Whitewater.”
For the winter of 2019/2020 the Spokane Shuttle will run with no minimum number of passengers required. The price has been reduced to $115 one way or $230 return. Departure of up to 2:30pm from the Spokane Airport also means that we are able to provide same day service for more guests.
“Kootenay Gateway Mountain Shuttle has been providing shuttle service across the region and in Rossland to Red Mountain for years, and offers a reliable, friendly and on-time service.” reflects Andras Lukacs, Executive Director, Tourism Rossland. “Our company mission is to get visitors and locals to the mountains, and we are excited to be part of this shuttle service” says owners Natasha and Ian Lockey of Kootenay Gateway Mountain Shuttle.
An added service between Nelson and Rossland will also be offered to transport skiers between each community. This fee is $79 one way and must be booked 48 hrs in advance to guarantee a seat.
Booking details will be available soon on the Kootenay Gateway website. Stay tuned.
Andras or Dianna are available for interviews. Call or email them, they will be happy to talk about this exciting news!
