Overnights at BC ski resorts don’t have to be run-of-the-mill—not when accommodation ranges from luxury ski-in/ski-out chalets to cozy cabins in the woods, and everything in between.

In Whistler, skiers and boarders get right to it at the First Tracks Lodge. Standing tall at the base of Whistler Mountain, it features designer suites, a heated pool, hot tubs, a lobby library, and, of course, first tracks, courtesy of the Creekside Express Gondola. Or go beyond the slopes and stay at the Riverside Resort, set on 16 hectares (40 acres) of prime Whistler real estate further north. Here, options abound: comfy log cabins, RV hookups, and overnights in winterized yurts—think camping, minus the work.
In Sun Peaks, live like royalty on the Summit Club Floor at the Grand. Open seasonally, the exclusive floor has rooms with all the amenities, plus access to a private lounge. To embrace your natural surroundings, Peaks Bed and Breakfast is just 10 minutes down the road in the village of Whitecroft. Here, bedrooms are bright and airy, and breakfasts feature local treats. There’s even a forested waterfall, partially frozen in winter, 20 minutes from the B&B.
