Why British Columbia, Canada should be your next ski holiday

Scattered across 10 diverse mountain ranges, British Columbia’s ski resorts are abundant with mountain adventure and rich with small-town charm. BC’s vast, rugged and unspoilt mountains offer a world of possibilities whichever style of snow holiday you are seeking. The raw nature, unique ski culture, deep snowfalls and unmatched terrain draws skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. You will be inspired to explore, play, adventure and progress.

With so much to take in, from the vast wilderness, vibrant ski towns, countless winter activities, and memorable apres moments with locals, the best way to make the most of your ski trip is by combining resorts and planning an unforgettable ski safari. Here are Mogul Ski World’s favourite BC ski resorts:

SilverStar Mountain Resort

SilverStar is a resort that warmly welcomes all ages and abilities making it a great choice for families. Here, wide-open runs are perfect for those looking to cruise with plenty of elbow room. A well-planned mid-mountain village makes it easy to ski up to shops like the Bugaboos Bakery for a delicious homemade soup or to visit the Elevate Spa for a rejuvenating massage.

Sun Peaks Resort

Further north is Sun Peaks. The resort’s slopeside, pedestrian-only village is encircled by the mountain trio of Tod, Sundance, and Morrisey. As Canada’s second-largest ski area, you’re spoiled for choice with 138 runs, deep steeps, and long cruisers. Trade in the downhills for a cross-country adventure on the groomed Nordic trail network, or head out with a team of Alaskan huskies on a dog sledding tour.

RED Mountain Resort

Just 15 minutes from the US border is the town of Rossland, home to RED Mountain Resort. Skiing is the talk of the town, with homegrown shops such as Butch Boutry Ski Shop offering space to share tall tales while also outfitting the latest gear. On RED, you’ll find well-spaced tree skiing with sustained vertical topping 914 metres. A great time to visit is during the annual Winter Carnival in late January, when residents come out to celebrate all things winter, as they have since 1898.

Whistler Blackcomb

Just 90 minutes from downtown Vancouver is world-renowned Whistler; home of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The two mountains boast North America’s largest in-bounds terrain at over 3,237 hectares and consistently rank among the top resorts on the continent. After the lifts close, the fun heats up in the village with restaurants and a nightlife that welcomes ski boots well into the early hours.

Panorama Mountain Resort

In the heart of BC’s Purcell Range is Panorama Mountain Resort. The resort has immaculate slopes away from any hustle and bustle. After a full day on the mountain, resort guests are welcome to unwind at the Panorama Springs Pools. Choose from a variety of pool sizes and temperatures to get the body primed and ready for another day with impressive views and 1,280 metres of vertical descent.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is home to North America’s highest vertical drop at more than 1,700 metres. Combine that with an average yearly snowfall of over 9 metres, and the result is seemingly endless thigh-burning runs, from top to bottom. Afterwards, have a pint at the Mackenzie Tavern, or “The Mac.”

Northern Escape Heli Skiing

Located in the stunning Skeena Range of Northern BC, well off the tourist trail, Northern Escape Heli Skiing can take you into a backcountry paradise with some of the planet’s deepest, driest, and most reliable snowpacks. BC is the birthplace of heli-skiing and with quick access to three boutique, luxury lodges from Terrace airport (a short 1.5-hour flight from Vancouver), Northern Escape is easily British Columbia’s most accessible heli-ski and heli-boarding operator. The terrain is wild and expansive, featuring alpine bowls, immense glaciers, steep couloirs and epic tree skiing. With 5,500 square kilometres of big mountain powder skiing as your exclusive playground, it truly doesn’t get any better.
