Why British Columbia is a Must-Ski Destination!

Did you know that BC, Canada, has the longest lift-serviced vertical in North America? Or that you can ski through an alpine village? Here are some of the top reasons why a British Columbia should be your next snow holiday.

Feel the burn as you ski down the longest lift-serviced vertical 

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is Canada’s newest resort and also has the longest lift-serviced vertical in North America at 1,712 metres.

Ski straight to your door

We love that most resorts in British Columbia have ski-in, ski-out accommodation. This means more time on the slopes! Big White Ski Resort has the largest ski-in/ski-out village and Sun Peaks Resort has a pedestrian-only ski village which means you can ski right to the coffee shop.

North America’s largest ski resort is just a 1.5-hour drive from Vancouver

Whistler Blackcomb spans two mountains, connected by the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, with more than 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls, and three glaciers.

There is more to do than ski

Most ski resorts in British Columbia offer a range of winter activities including dog sledding, snowshoeing, tubing and ice climbing. Experience the SilverStar back country like never before on an amazing snowmobile tour!

BC is the birthplace of Heli-Skiing

Over 50 years ago, Hans Gsmoer started the legendary CMH Heli-Skiing. Today CMH has 11 heli-ski areas through British Columbia, thrill-seekers come from all over the world to indulge in Canada’s indomitable landscape and powder.

Home to the Powder Highway

The Powder Highway connects 8 lift-service resorts. The ultimate powder playground, Revelstoke, is located in the northeast corner of the Powder Highway, and Kicking Horse is just east. From there, road warriors head south to Panorama ski resort, which offers some impressive vertical skiing, and then to Kimberley ski resort. A quick detour via Cranbrook accesses Fernie ski resort, followed by Whitewater ski resort. The powder tower ends in at Red Mountain, which is home to Big Red Cats – a cat skiing company. Ski them all, or just a few!
