The options are endless. A mind-boggling number of snow-bound possibilities exist in Northwestern North America, but how many people know about them, and where does a person start?
SnowSeekers is the a snow-minded new-media company that delivers incredible videos, informative articles, and stellar photos through SnowSeekers.ca, SnowSeekers TV, and a line of smartphone applications. Whether it's for die hard locals, vacationing families, or powderhounds from across the globe, SnowSeekers highlights all the amazing snowbound opportunities in Alberta, BC, and coming soon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington State.
SnowSeekers seeks to fill a void left by most ski-related destination guides and travel magazines that routinely showcase only the most internationally recognized resorts, leaving out many other amazing opportunities available to the ski, snowboard, and snow enthusiast. Often these other great destinations are only a short drive away, but many visitors to Western Canada are unaware.
The Three Pillars of SnowSeekers
SnowSeekers.ca is the home base for SnowSeekers. It's an e-newsmagazine that covers more than 30 destinations, from world-class resorts to out-of-the-way winter retreats and everything in between.
We're called SnowSeekers for a reason. We're not SkiSeekers or SnowboardSeekers. We're SnowSeekers because we have a passion for anything snow-related ? whether that's skiing, snowmobiling, snoeshoeing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, you name it. We want to get the word out to as many people as possible about all the amazing snowbound adventures this part of the world has to offer.
No matter if you already live in Western Canada or if you're vacationing here for the first time, SnowSeekers.ca delivers you what you need to plan your next trip.
Start by clicking on the Choose your Region drop down above, then drill down to the resort/destination you'd like to check out. For each destination we bring news, feature stories, videos, as well as up-to-the-day snow conditions.
From the very beginning of SnowSeekers we've been focused on bringing its audience as much video content as possible. Winter is an extremely visual thing, and we understand that perhaps the best way to convey this to people is by letting them see it for themselves.
The quality of our footage increases exponentially every season, and we're showing no signs of slowing down. Our shooting schedule is more ambitious than ever this season, so you're best to stay locked to SnowSeekers.ca all season to check out what's in store.
