Miss 604 takes over SnowSeekers Instagram!

This week was a wild one for SnowSeekers. This past monday, Miss 604, took over our Instagram to show us her recent trips to Sun Peaks, Silverstar, and Big White. Here's a recap of her entertaining posts.

A view of Mount Morrisey at Sun Peaks Resort from Sundance Mountain. With 4,270 acres of skiable terrain, this is Canada's second largest ski resort. This also means even on the busiest of days, your wait time at any of the 11 lifts is minimal. Fresh powder, groomed runs — the longest of which is 8 klicks and impeccable sunrise views above the clouds make Sun Peaks a haven for snow seekers!

If you haven't been out on a snowboard for at least five years like me, I highly recommend a refresher lesson too — no matter your ability. I took a "Level 4" lesson with Kate who helped me work out old/bad habits and showed me some awesome powder-filled runs.

When skiing or snowboarding at a new-to-you mountain it's always a good idea to go out with a guide who can help you experience the best of what the resort has to offer. Guides can show you the best runs, tailor the routes to your abilities, challenge you, and share some pretty fun stories. At Silverstar, I took another refresher lesson with Benji who posed playfully before we set out on another run above the clouds.

Big White is having a bumper year with record amounts of snow and visitors from around the world joining British Columbians and Washingtonians on slopes. When we arrived last week, however, it was completely socked in with #fog as a Pineapple Express hunkered down on the coast. Not to worry! They also offer snowshoe tours along with snowmobile tours, a mega-snow coaster, an ice climbing tower, horse drawn sleigh rides, and skating outdoors on an Olympic-sized rink. The snowshoe tour we did was amazing, a full 90 minutes with breaks every 200 feet or so to talk about the forest, Big White, and much more with our informative volunteer guide.

At Silverstar, champagne powder can be carved up on 128 runs with progressive terrain for learning or in an uncrowded paradise of over 1,900 acres of steep black and double diamond runs. Whatever your adventure, start your day out right with a hearty breakfast in the village. As the #sun popped up over the horizon and bleary-eyed skiers flocked to restaurants and cafes, I took this photo on my way over to Bugaboos for a breakfast panini and coffee.
