Terrain Description

Hudson Bay Mountain is known for snow, stationed along the Yellowhead Highway in Northern BC so it sees its fair share of those light fluffy powdery days we all dream about. The beauty of Hudson Bay for families is that it's the kind of place kids can go explore without any worries while those looking for the steeps and deeps will stay busy exploring the more advanced terrain.  One of the unique terrain features of Hudson Bay is the cabin colony built right into the mountain.
