Ski the Powder Highway in British Columbia, Canada

Professional skier and full-time road tripper Dave Treadway tells us why the Powder Highway, in the southeast corner of British Columbia, Canada, should be at the top of your winter playtime destination list.

There are so many reasons: Yes, you can ski places like Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Red Mountain Resort, Whitewater Ski Resort, Panorama Mountain Resort, and Kimberley Alpine Resort. Yes, you can go heli-skiing and venture into the backcountry to access some of the driest, deepest powder of your life. But there’s also ice skating, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fat tire biking, natural hot springs, and a whole lot of pristine nature.

The Powder Highway is a circular route through the Kootenay Rockies that passes by 8 alpine ski resorts, 23 backcountry lodges, and numerous heli- and cat-ski operators. Not to mention the awesome little towns with unique local cultures all to themselves, such as Nelson and Golden.

The best advice Dave has for planning your trip? Take the time you’ve allotted and double it...and have a blast!
