Sunshine Village is a big mountain resort close to Calgary and Banff. It's made up of several mountains if you want to get specific, but the entire ski area is accessed by one lift at the base lodge. Fortunately this lift is the Gondola, and is the fastest lift and has the highest capacity, so the base area doesn't get too bottlenecked with the crowds.

When going up the Gondola the first mountain you will arrive at is Goat's Eye. This is the lowest mountain and usually has the least amount of snow, but there are some good mogul fields there in the spring. The new Wild West zone is also accessible off the Goat's Eye quad.

The second stop the Gondola makes is the Daylodge and Inn. This is where the majority of other lifts are based. To the west is Wawa Ridge, accessed by a short, slow lift. It's worth the wait as there are usually powder stashes to be found there. To the South is Standish, a zone filled with short steeps and drops. And finally to the east is Continental Divide, a lift that takes you across the Alberta / British Columbia border. This is also where the terrain park is, and access to the Delirium Dive and Silver City areas.

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 ]
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 ]
The ski area of Apex Mountain Resort is actually on Beaconsfield Mountain. This is an appropriately named mountain. When you get to the top and look around, you will see lots of tempting sidecountry and backcountry, where an avalanche beacon is required. [ Read More ]
