Known as the 'Whisper of the North' by the locals for its near unbelievable snowfall counts, this is a place where you'll have to have a good sense of direction.  That's because locals have been known to steal the sign off the highway to keep this powder gem to themselves. Powder King is about 45 minutes north of Prince George, B.C., and offers up a variety of snow-seeking satisfaction, from heli-skiing to snowshoeing in an old-growth forest.
