Jan 09, 2017
Plenty of pearly white powder combined with towering mountains, spectacular views and different terrains make British Columbia one of the best places in the world for skiing.
On the coast of British Columbia, you will find the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics – Whistler, Blackcomb. Consistently voted a #1 destination, skiers and snowboarders will have a blast here on more skiable terrain than anywhere else in North America. For extreme skiers wanting a heart-stopping experience, try the heli-skiing opportunities. 173 glaciers, 475 runs and plenty of big jumps and open air will push you to your limit with these two mountains! Five terrain parks hold 90 rails, one 18” Zaugg pipe, 40 jumps and plenty of tabletops, hips and more make this one of the best places to practice your big air and balance.
Revelstoke is ideal for extreme skiers with the most vertical in North America. Steep lines, heli-, lift- and cat-skiing, as well as shorter lines, makes this one of the most popular ski resorts in the Kootenay Rockies. With custom-built rail features, a progressive design that will take you from beginner to advanced and many jump lines, this terrain park is a huge draw for those who love to freestyle. Skim over sheer rocks, sail high into the air, do your spins and flips or dodge trees as you swish through the snow. Revelstoke is waiting to welcome you to an amazing ski adventure.
Apex Mountain Resort is located in the Okanagan Valley. Here, 600 cm of perfect powder, 2000 feet of vertical, steep and narrow runs and plenty of bowls and glades make this a treasure for locals and visitors alike. Come take the plunge down the incredible ski hills in British Columbia!
