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.

Some ski areas are said to be in a snow shadow. If there is an opposite term for that, it could be used to describe Whitewater. This ski area gets significantly more snow than its regional rivals, and it has awesome terrain with which to shred it on a pow day. [ Read More ]
Grouse mountain is front and center in the Vancouver mountain scene and has something for everyone. This is good if you are trying to attract as many visitors as you can to a mountain, but not so good if you are looking to avoid crowds and get some fresh tracks. The one thing that sets Grouse apart from the other two North Shore mountains is that you do not have to drive up a mountain road to rea... [ Read More ]
