Why is Monashee Powder so good? It is in the Monashee Mountains - unsurpassed for its quantity and quality of snow. Lots of alpine - (great glades and tree skiing too). We are in the alpine or treeline zone about 75% of the time. We have 5 alpine ridge lines for great runs and fresh tracks each run. Remote, high elevation lodge - offering spectacular views and a 5 to 15 minute cat ride to the first run each morning. Lots of terrain - 66 sq. kms (17,000 acres) so we rarely ask you to 'farm' the snow.
