Skiing & Snowboarding
Skiing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Pristine wilderness, breathtaking steeps, fresh tracks, exhilarating tree-skiing, and postcard-perfect landscapes await skiers and snowboarders who venture into northern British Columbia.
Mountains of powder create some of the deepest snow bases on the continent. And enjoy short to non-existent lift line-ups at one of Northern BC's ski hills: Hudson Bay Mountain Resort (formerly known as Ski & Ride Smithers), Powder King Mountain Resort or My Mountain Co-op Shames Mountain. Smaller, uncrowded and economical downhill skiing and snowboarding areas can also be found in Northern BC.
Snowy winters here mean ski hills usually open in November and close in April.
