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.

Lake Louise serves up the most terrain in the Canadian Rockies and from time to time gets some good dumps of snow as well. This is where most people from Calgary come to shred along with many of the people staying in Banff, so it can get busy on the weekends. The mountain has three different areas to choose from, all offering up something different, allowing you to escape the crowds even on the b... [ Read More ]
Red Mountain Resort claims 28% of the runs in the ski area are double blacks. That's definitely a bit more than average! There is a ton of vertical on the 3 mountains that make up Red. It is probably one of the best places in BC to be on a powder day during a season when the snowpack is good. [ Read More ]
