Long cold winters, consistent snow and big mountain terrain, it is no surprise that Canada has some of the best resorts in the world. BC is home to some of best terrain on the planet and Canada’s reputation for deep powder is largely due to the huge snowfall this region scores. BC bears the brunt of weather that approaches from the Pacific Ocean before it hits the Canadian Rockies, so these resorts score heavier snowfalls and deeper powder days. The most famous resort in BC is Whistler Blackcomb which should be on every snowboarder’s bucket list. However, some of the lesser known resorts are getting a rep as world class destinations. The Okanagan Valley is home to Big White and Silver Star. In the Rockies you’ll find Fernie, Panorama and Kicking Horse. Add the laid back resorts of Red Mountain and Whitewater, both known for their legendary deep West Kootenay powder and you can see why BC attracts snow lovers from across the globe.
