Skiing & Snowboarding
Skiing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
More than half of British Columbia's major ski resorts are located in the Kootenay Rockies region.
The terrain here is dominated by amazing mountain ranges – the Monashees, Purcells, Selkirks, and Rockies – and up to 14m/46ft of light, dry powder falls each year.
Ski and snowboard resorts in the Kootenay Rockies feature uncrowded slopes, short lift lines, and laid-back, friendly atmospheres. The quantity and proximity of resorts along the "Powder Highway" enables skiers and boarders to sample a variety of slopes during a single visit.
There are also number of smaller, family-friendly downhill ski and snowboard areas in the Kootenay Rockies.
