Mountains reign supreme in British Columbia, and in the winter, they're coated in snow.
As a consequence there is terrific skiing and snowboarding resorts throughout the province as well as backcountry skiing opportunities in national and provincial parks.
Whistler Blackcomb is one of the top-rated ski resorts in North America and was the host mountain resort of the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games but for some of the world's best powder and heli-skiing head to the Kootenay Rockies region.
Both cat-skiing and heli-skiing were pioneered here, and if a Revelstoke Heli Skiing or Revelstoke Cat Skiing adventure isn't on your bucket list, then it should be. With untouched powder fields, classic lines, peaks, glaciers, pillows, alpine bowls, and old growth forests at your ski tips, the rest of the world is far, far away.
