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.

The lift accessed terrain is contained within five bowls and their drainages, and is for the most part below the tree line. Lizard bowl and Cedar bowl are the exceptions to this and are quite wide open from top to bottom with few trees. Near the top of the mountain you can find some rocky chutes, a few cliff lines as well as wide open powder fields that with any luck will be filled with the real deal blower powder. Once you hit the tree line there is plenty of glades to be skied before heading down onto the lower half of the mountain which is mostly groomers with a few gladed areas.

This mountain about an hour out of Calgary is one of the best little big mountains around, and in my mind the closest legitimate mountain to Calgary. The resort itself is located in the Kananaskis Region of Alberta, which is about 25 km east of the B.C./Alberta border and in the most easterly part of the Rocky Mountains. This location at the edge of the Rockies provides Fortress with quite a bit ... [ Read More ]
This big mountain rarely disappoints, unless of course you trash your gear on some early season rocks. The upper parts of the mountain are gnarly, with steep chutes everywhere off the top ridges that throw you out into wide open bowls. Once you get out of the alpine you will find decent tree skiing, quite a few groomers and a lengthy cat track that can have some fun features off the edges. The ba... [ Read More ]
