Need a bunny slope for the little ones and a half-pipe for the teens? BC has the resort for you.
Drive the Powder Highway for vertical and deep powder. Panorama, RED, Whitewater, Fernie, Revelstoke, Kimberley, and Kicking Horse resorts are scattered along the route in southeast BC. Families looking for runs and activities for all ages should head to BC’s interior. Big White, Sun Peaks, Apex, and SilverStar boast champagne powder, organized activities, and a friendly vibe.
Whistler Blackcomb, on the coast, hosts professional skiers and boarders, but there are plenty of green runs and adventures to keep the little ones entertained, too. The on-mountain Magic Castle and Tree Fort are always a hit. And Mount Washington, on Vancouver Island, is known for its huge annual snowfall, with an average of 11.5 metres (38 feet).
Need a little guidance? Most resorts offer free mountain tours to help you find the right slopes, trails, parks, and glades.
