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.

Most importantly, the snow consistently comes early and often here. You're likely to find great conditions at any point of Silver Star's 5 month winter season. [ Read More ]
Hemlock Valley Resort is located in the Fraser Valley, close to Chilliwack, Mission and Abbotsford. The road up is gnarly but once you make it to the lodge it's a nice little area. Four lifts service the ski area which is 121 hectares with a 400m vertical drop. [ Read More ]
Vancouver Islands only remaining lift serviced mountain is yet another one of the coastal mountains in B.C. that gets pounded hard with Pacific storms all winter long. Located about half way up Vancouver Island, Mount Washington rises 1588 meters above sea level and is just 80 km east of wide open ocean, making it the closest ski resort to the Pacific Ocean.
