In British Columbia, excitement and adventures are abundant in the winter months. Make the most of snow season in BC, whether snowshoeing through a majestic forest, winding through the trails on a dog sledding excursion, or exploring one of the 13 destination ski resorts.

Though BC is known for some of the world’s best powder and second-to-none heli-skiing, there’s plenty to do besides skiing and snowboarding, too. The province is home to more than 50 Nordic ski areas, many offering lit trails for night skiing. Other popular winter pursuits in BC include snowshoeing, storm watching, ice climbing, and unforgettable snowmobiling adventures. What’s more, this is the birthplace of both cat-skiing and heli-skiing.
