Smithers is a mountain town. Locals refer to the ski hill, Hudson Bay Mountain Resort, simply as “The Mountain” because it is such a large part of their lives and the town's culture.
Hudson Bay Mountain Skiing & Snowboarding
Hudson Bay Mountain (previously named Ski & Ride Smithers) boasts a variety of terrain covering 121ha/300ac. Most of the runs are intermediate, but there's plenty for novices and advanced snowboarders and skiers too. Snow conditions are usually consistently dry and the hill is never too busy to get first tracks on a powder day.
Currently, the mountain features two lodges (one with a restaurant and lounge), rentals and lessons, a terrain park, one chairlift, two T-bars, and a handle tow. Fifty-five per cent of the runs are intermediate; the rest are split between advanced and beginner.
