Breathtaking vertical drops and fresh powder make Northern BC a fantastic destination for skiing, snowboarding and other winter activities.

Enjoy magnificent vistas from the mountaintops and tree-lined runs at Northern BC ski resorts such as My Mountain Co-op Shames Mountain, Hudson Bay Mountain and Powder King Mountain Resort, without the crowds found at slopes further south.

Feeling adventurous? Go for extreme winter challenges like a three-day snowmobile trip or heli-ski adventure into the backcountry. For more sublime winter activities, try snowshoeing, dogsledding or cross-country skiing through the countryside.
