Flow Tailgate BC provides easy access to terrain made famous in countless ski and snowboarding videos.

• Inaugural Tailgate BC event
• No Down Days — tree skiing and resort access
• Affordable heli packages
• Emphasis on backcountry safety and education
• Limited to 150 participants

Flow Tailgate BC 2012 will take place from March 8 - 12, 2012

Revelstoke offers some of the best backcountry terrain on the planet. With multiple ways to reach deep in the wilderness, Flow Tailgate BC is poised to set a new standard for participation-based events.




Dates:
March 8 – 12, 2012

Location:
Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada

Schedule:
A five-day festival with snow-science and survival education, snowmobiling clinics, side events, live concerts, vendors, beer garden and parties throughout the duration.

Riders/Skiers:
The festival is open to the public but limited to 150 participants. All participants are expected to know how to use a beacon, shovel, probe — and to have basic backcountry knowledge.



Tailgaters have many choices when it comes to accessing terrain. Eagle Pass Heli Skiing has put together some amazingly affordable 'small' heli packages to allow riders/skiers to whet their appetite in Revelstoke's gargantuan terrain. In addition, snowmobile rentals are available locally, allowing an affordable way to get uphill, and complimentary snowmobiling education is offered. With Rogers Pass down the road as well as Revelstoke Resort, there's an option for every rider and budget. Flow Tailgate BC gives you discounts on all of these.

The Tailgate BC Village serves as a rallying point in the middle of it all. With a heli pad on location and a sled trailhead across the street, the base camp will be the crossroads of activities.

Many participants choose to stay in base camp in tents and RVs. Local hotel accommodations are also available at discounted rates.

How it Works

Arrival
The event location is about 5km (3 miles) west of Revelstoke off the Trans Canadian Highway. The Great White North roadhouse will serve as home base for Flow Tailgate BC.

Tour
We will have regular tours of the event facilities to show you what is available at Tailgate BC and, hopefully, give you an idea for creative ways to fill your downtime at the event.

Settle in
Get your RV parked, check out the mountains, boot ‘em up and get on it.

Snow Science / Sled Riding / Sled Maintenance clinics
Daily snow science and backcountry survival lectures ("a must" from fellow Tailgaters) will be held at 2 pm, courtesy Jeremy Hawkes at Tailgate BC. See the sled-riding/maintenance clinics schedule online or posted at the front office.

Line up a way up the hill
If you have already booked time with a heli, cat or other operator, you are one step ahead of the game. Simply let them know you are in town. If you haven't, schedule/reserve it ASAP. There are few worse feelings than sitting out a blue day.

Sideline Things to Do
For the après or downtime at base camp, check the schedule of activities in the front office and/or to sign up for the daily Man Games and Beacon Search contests.

Game Room
More diversions can be found in the game room, providing hours of fun with table tennis, darts, and skeet shooting right outside.

Beer Garden
Each afternoon/evening the community Beer Garden gets all abuzz — look for the swarmed, fenced-in tent area. The Beer Garden will be open each day for All-Access/VIP pass holders from 4–8 pm.

Daily Schedule
Your daily plan is up to you. For hiking and skinning, there is Rogers Pass a short drive away. Our camp is located across the street from the Boulder Mountain trailhead. There is even a 5,000-foot–vertical resort within 10 minutes. Perhaps best of all, the helis access all sorts of treed runs so a weather day does not necessarily mean a no fly day. Plan your days ASAP. If you want a sled, arrange it earlier than later. Heli, same thing — reservations fill up fast. You get the idea.
