It’s no secret that British Columbia, Canada, is a skier's paradise. Home to some of North America’s largest ski areas and biggest vertical drop, it’s blessed with feather-light snow so smooth, sparkly and dry that it’s referred to as “champagne powder”. The variety of terrain suits skiers of all abilities: from long and gentle green and blue runs to challenging glades and bowls that thrill the pros.

BC is also an alpine wonderland for non-powderhounds: charming towns, picture-postcard views, an abundance of local food and wine (culminating in a vibrant après scene) and multiple non-skiing winter sport and activities make it ideal for groups of mixed interests, or simply for those looking for a bit of variety on a winter holiday.

Of the province’s 13 destination ski resorts, seven lie in a region known as the Powder Highway – famed not only for its massive snowfalls of champagne powder but also for having the highest concentration of ski resorts in the world. You could make it a road trip and take in a few or all of the Powder Highway ski towns during your stay.

While all of BC’s ski resorts are wonderful, each has different attractions. Some really play up the après, some are blissfully off the beaten track, some are extra family-friendly and some even lie right in a wine region. Follow this quick guide to the best ski resorts in British Columbia to find the perfect one for you and start planning your next winter holiday.
