Escape the winter blues by venturing into the Kootenay Rockies for some of the finest powder skiing and snowboarding in North America.

Seven dazzling ski resorts – more than half of BC’s major ski resorts – make their home in the region, with many located in close proximity to one another along the famous “Powder Highway.”

They offer head-rushing descents, great expanses of groomed cross-country and snowshoe trails, and fun, relaxing après ski experiences.

Arrange to go cat-skiing and heli-skiing for added adventure, or try snowmobiling and dogsledding for a true winter experience.
