The undisputed snowfall champion of the world, Baker gets more snow on average than any other ski resort in the world. Located about 250 km east of the Pacific Ocean, Baker gets hit with storms all season long and is just far enough inland for the precipitation to fall in the form of bottomless powder. You aren't going to find the driest powder here as the ski area lies between 1070-1551 meters, but when you get the amount of snow that Baker gets you can forget about how dry your powder is.

Baker defines a laid back mountain, the nearest accommodation is 20 miles down the road, the lift tickets are cheap, the chairs are slow and everyone is here for the same reason, powder. The inbounds terrain here is located on two peaks, Hemispheres Chair and Panorama Dome, and for the most part manages to stay in the thinly treed edges of the alpine border. The backcountry here is everywhere, very accessible and gets serious in a hurry once you enter it through one of the designated entry points off the inbounds terrain. It is enter at your own risk with a transceiver, shovel, probe, partner and thorough understanding of what you are getting yourself in to.

About half way between Vancouver and Calgary, and just off of Highway 1, is the city of Revelstoke, dam of Revelstoke, and ski resort of Revelstoke. They like the name Revelstoke in Revelstoke, and apparently some of them like skiing and snowboarding as well. This resort uses high speed lifts to access a large amount and variety of terrain, making it one of the best advanced ski areas in BC. [ Read More ]
This mountain in South Eastern B.C. gets a ton of snow and is conveniently located just far enough away from any major population to keep it fairly low key. If you have seen shots of people riding through the snow and not on top of it they were probably taken here as Fernie gets some of the lightest snow around. [ Read More ]
Manning Park Resort can be found between Hope and Princeton on Highway 3. The resort and its ski area are within the boundaries of EC Manning Cascade Provincial Park. This area is cold in the winter, and consistently gets a deep snowpack. [ Read More ]
