Serious powderhounds make the trek to the southeastern corner of BC to ski at Fernie Alpine Resort. Nearly nine metres (30 feet) of snow blankets this resort each year, ranking it among the snowiest ski destinations in Canada. A must? Ride up the Polar Peak chairlift to one the highest peaks in the Lizard Range, and carve the steep and deep from 1,082 metres (3,550 feet).
Beyond the slopes, you can hop on a snowmobile or soak up the culture of a BC mountain town. The little town of Fernie is a hotspot for theatre, art galleries, and dining.
