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.

There are 3 sides to the Whitewater ski area. Silver King and Summit sides surround you when you arrive at the lodge. It is a spectacular view here, especially for a skier or boarder carrying avalanche gear. Both of these sides are serviced by double chairs. The Summit side has steeper terrain and more vertical, while a beginner area and park on the Silver King side.

Off the back side of the Summit is Glory Ridge. This area is serviced by a triple chair that drops to the lowest point in the ski area. The terrain here is similar to that of the Summit. It's steep and has plenty of vertical.

During the winter season you're as much or more likely to find powder at Whitewater than any other ski area in BC.

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 ]
The most westerly of the North Shore mountains, Cypress mountain is the biggest little mountain in Vancouver. Up here you will have more vertical, more lifts and more runs than any of the other North Shore mountains. The crowds up here are comparable to Grouse most days, but with more terrain once you get through the lift line you should be a lot better off as most of the people stick to the mell... [ Read More ]
