Golden, BC – It was a chilly start to the 2018 opening day at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, but the flow of hot chocolate and the adrenaline had the crowd, who were gathering in the pre-dawn light, stoked.

Golden, B.C. – As the rest of the patrons at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort drove the dark road back to Golden or tucked into their slope-side accommodations, I waited at the base of the gondola for my ride. I could hear it and see the beaming headlights long before I saw it crawl like a bug over the lip of the last pitch and slowly grind down the slope.

Temperatures have dropped, snow has topped the mountains and just like that, ski season is upon us. Check out the photos from opening weekend at Big White Ski Resort.

Dakota Ridge is a winter recreation area located on the Sunshine Coast with 12 km of groomed cross country skiing trails and a network of snowshoe trails.

Carve into champagne powder at one of Kamloops ski resorts or cross country ski by the light of the moon. Peddle your bike through some incredible trails, venture by snowshoe to parts unexplored or strap on your ice skates for a friendly game of hockey on a outdoor rink.

Snow was falling heavily as Chris Wheeler pulled into the parking lot at Powder King Ski Resort in Northern B.C in late January 2018. Not being one to waste time on a powder day, Wheeler grabbed his camera gear and hit the chair. Next thing he knew he was shooting powder slashes with a local snowboarder who had offered to show him a few of his hidden gems.

While known for its summer shenanigans, I can assure you Wells, B.C. is most certainly not sleeping during the winter. This vibrant town’s heart is pulsing with the stacking snow and is most definitely a winter destination for outdoor seekers. A meander through town showcases many of the bright, bold and historic buildings and gives you a quick the lay of the land for all of your winter musts in Wells.

There is something special about sharing deep untouched snow with your closest friends. It really doesn’t matter where you are from, how far you have travelled, or how experienced you are. When you take that first plunge into blower snow, and your heart skips a beat, we all end up with the same big smiles on our faces.
