Waves of Fresh Powder

In winter, local conditions are made for strapping on your fat skis or snowboard and carving your way through waves of fresh untouched powder. Try CAT skiing with a Cariboo Snowcat, or for something unique, try snowboarding at Crystal Ridge. It’s the only place with a sled-assisted ski hill in the world. Head down on long, steep tree runs and wide bowls filled with powder and classic glades. Valemount’s backcountry is paradise for cross-country skiers and snowshoers. As you enjoy the crisp winter air, discover the designated snowmobile riding areas. From the novice to the more experienced sledder there are great riding options for all.

Be led through a snowy winter wonderland past frozen waterfalls, snow-covered trees and breathtaking panoramic views with Coldfire Creek Dogsledding. Go outdoor ice skating on Cranberry Marsh (once the ice is frozen), where on weekends, you’ll find local families out for a game of hockey or twirling on figure skates.
