Fernie Alpine Resort

Fernie is the home of legendary powder with up to 11 metres of snow a year and the largest alpine bowl skiing in the Canadian Rockies. This quintessential Canadian resort offers an authentic, laidback culture and great après-ski.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is known for its steep and complex terrain, deep powder and fourth-longest vertical in North America. Advanced and expert skiers and boarders will have an absolute ball here, but don't be scared off! There are plenty of runs for intermediate skiers and snowboarders, too. The resort is relatively undeveloped, with only four lifts and a small village, yet it offers steep open bowls, dry powder and well gladed trees.

Fun fact: Kicking Horse use to be only accessible by heli!

Panorama Mountain Resort

Panorama has flown under the radar for years, however this intimate ski-in/ski-out resort offers some incredible riding and is very family friendly. Panorama is one of North America’s Top 10 resorts with the most vertical – this is a big, epic mountain with a wide variety of terrain, ranging from fabulously long cruising runs and a World Cup Downhill to a Discovery Zone designed specifically for beginners. Every Wednesday you can visit Kicking Horse for the day with a shuttle bus and interchangeable lift ticket.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Revelstoke has long been known by cat skiers and heli-skiers, however in 2007 the resort opened to the public and development continues to transform this previously hidden gem into one the biggest and best resorts in Canada. It boasts North America’s highest lift-serviced vertical and is the only resort worldwide to offer lift, cat, heli- and backcountry skiing from one village base. A great resort to warm up your legs before heli-skiing!
