Here are a few more insider facts on B.C.'s interior
The Interior is home to British Columbia's wine country, the second largest in Canada behind Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario.
It's also bisected by historic Route 97, the longest continuous north-south highway in North America.
Highway 97 also stretches almost 2,000 miles from Weed, Calif. in the south to Watson Lake, Yukon in the north, which is also Mile Zero of the Alaska Highway.
Nearby, there a couple of other resorts worth checking out that may not be on your radar. The snow and skiing is epic at Southern Interior resorts Red Mountain near Rossland and Whitewater near Nelson. Twenty-five glorious feet of the white stuff every season covers Red's 110 runs serviced by seven lifts over 2,682 acres of terrain.
