Smithers, Skiing & Snowboarding
Find more information about Smithers - Skiing & Snowboarding
Last February as my university studies began to weigh heavily upon my shoulders and dreary wet weather in Victoria had me chilled to the bone, I anxiously jumped on a plane home dreaming about the legendary powder, the incredible groomed runs, and the steeps of the double black diamonds on Hudson Bay Mountain
I spent the week of my reading break soaking up the mountain sunshine, shredding the powder, and carving the groomers on the ski hill. Upon my return to Victoria, my friends compared their tans from Hawaii, while I excitedly showed off my goggle tan from Hudson Bay Mountain.
Over the years, I have realized how incredibly lucky I am to have grown up with a great ski hill that has predictable snow, often in the form of champagne powder, within an hours drive of New Hazelton. If you are ever in Northwest BC during the winter definitely check out Hudson Bay Mountain near Smithers for your ski or snowboard fix!
