Serious powderhounds make the trek to the southeastern corner of BC to ski at Fernie Alpine Resort. Nearly 9 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 meters (3,550 feet).
Beyond the slopes, you can hop on a snowmobile or race through the glades by dogsled. The little town of Fernie is also a hotspot for theatre, art galleries, and dining.
