Where to go for the best experience


Fernie Alpine Resort is best known for its light, fluffy powder and vast terrain. It has entire runs through old-growth cedars, great views across the river valley of the Rockies, and a massive rock headwall that acts as a backdrop behind the five named bowls.


Just up the road in Golden, you’ll find similar variety at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, a community atmosphere with some of the best terrain in the world. 


North America’s best-known resort, Whistler Blackcomb. Recognized for its staggering size—200+ runs and over 3,237 skiable hectares (8,000 acres) of terrain—you could ski at Whistler for weeks without riding the same line.


A few hours west on the Powder Highway is Nelson, a ski town known for all-season adventure. Set on Kootenay Lake, Nelson is home to an eclectic mix of artists and artisans, funky shops and heritage buildings. And it’s just 20 minutes from Whitewater Ski Resort.


Above all else, Rossland’s lifestyle is the biggest draw. Locals care deeply about the town and the ski resort, which is best demonstrated at the Rossland Winter Carnival. This is Canada’s oldest, consecutively running winter carnival, dating back to 1898.
