A relatively small local's hill in BC predominately serviced by a single high-speed quad with very few crowds. Known for solid advanced terrain and quality powder snow, albeit in lower quantities than other resorts, with expert backcountry terrain accessible within a short hike. Higher elevation terrain can get quite windblown but terrain down low is well protected. Don't miss the Gunbarrel Coffee in the on-mountain restaurant - a flaming grand marnier poured down a double barrel shotgun into liqueur and coffee.

A mostly hidden gem - feels like giving away a local secret writing this. It was an epic snow year, we had so much fresh powder and it stayed cold. It was dry and light. Any week day you could ski right onto the lift with no wait and the weekends were only marginally busier. The terrain is a great mix of epic steeps, chutes, glades, spaces tree... More
