Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb

“ Whistler Blackcomb has enough terrain to make it suitable for a one week or even two week vacation without getting bored by repeating the same runs continually. The village also has enough nightlife and eating establishments to also avoid the same. And all this is without further need of a vehicle once you arrive. There is a reason why it is rated number one in North America.   ...” --noncrazycanuck

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

“ Love skiing at Kicking Horse. On a powder day it's unbelievable- fresh heli skiing lines all day. Even when it hasn't snowed for awhile, it's not bad, because the snow is so light.   The amount of chutes is unreal and the sidecountry is huge. Now that Superbowl is patrolled, it just adds that much more terrain.   One downside is the gondola is the only way up, but I've never...” --seattle_sun

Silver Star Mountain

Silver Star Mountain

“When visiting the Okanagan, I prefer to ski Silver Star. The whole backside of Silver Star will be interesting for strong skiers. The front side is a great place for intermediates.  The snow is better at Big White though, and it has more intermediate terrain. This might be worth checking out if you are in the Revelstoke area.” --manchester81

Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks

“Located in the North Thompson region of British Columbia’s South Central Interior, Sun Peaks is one of the more northerly of Western Canada’s major ski resorts. It is a 45 minute drive from Kamloops, B.C.  Sun Peaks sits on the Western edge of the Shuswap Plateau and is about 20 miles east of the North Thompson River. It is not really in a mountain range and is the only alpine peak in the...” --DanoT

Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie Alpine Resort

“ Fernie is my home mountain & I ski it around 35 to 40 times a season. Its located about 10 minutes from the town of Fernie, BC which can be seen from the slopes. It’s on the eastern slope of the Lizard Range of the Canadian Rockies and consists of 5 bowls divided by ridges which offer some very good steeps and tree skiing. All told there is around 2,000 acres of inbounds terrain of which...” --Kootenay

Big White

Big White

“A group of us went to Big White in March of this year, during  spring break. Surprisingly, there were very few people! I had been concerned about going at that time because of the possible crowding, but it never was an issue.  It snowed the afternoon and overnight the day we arrived, with 8" to greet us on our first morning of skiing,. The next two nights received a light dusting of...” --graham418

Apex

Apex

“ Apex is a mountain for good skiers.  No crowds usually dry snow. If you think you are a bump skier try the K and find out if your right. One of the better bump runs in B.C. If you can non stop zipper this you are. The double black chutes Magnum, Gunbarrells, Make my Day etc. all lose more vertical the further to the right right you head but all will get your attention. Tight and steep....” --noncrazycanuck

Panorama Mountain Village

Panorama Mountain Village

“I skied Panorama on February 10, 2017.  About 4 feet of fresh snow had fallen over a 5 day span.  Conditions were excellent throughout.  Taynton Bowl was epic.     It does not usually snow this much up there, but this year, it did!  In such conditions, Panorama is as good as anything in North America, except may be WB, Jackson and Big Sky.   I will go back!” --Pacobillie

“ In March of ‘12, DSJ got a call from Tom Tanner, manager at Ski Pro Mesa/Tempe, AZ asking whether myself and my wife Karen would like to be part of a promo trip to Red Mountain Resort, BC.  After quickly checking my schedule and frantically moving or canceling anything in the way, I said “Well, I suppose”.  Thanks to Fran Richards, the Dir. of Marketing at Red, five of us were...” --Fritzski

Whitewater

Whitewater

“I've skied at Whitewater a dozen times or so over the last ten years, half of these occasions in the last two years. I've obviously been a visitor on these occasions and thus haven't had the advantage of local knowledge when assessing Whitewater. What I do have is some perspective on skiing elsewhere.   Whitewater seems a perfect small town ski hill. It is very close to Nelson, the...” --Tecumseh
