Cool down with these snowy moments

Ah summer is finally here, some of us choose to spend it at the lake, or in campgrounds. But here at SnowSeekers we choose to dream about snowier days and cold temperatures.

Here are a few of our favorite memories from the past season.

Powell River

Did you know, the Knuckleheads range on the Sunshine Coast got its name when a Powell River resident saw a set of ski tracks and said, “You’d have to be a knucklehead to ski that.” The “knuckleheads” are increasing as more people head to the back country to shred the open bowls and glades above town.

Powder King

If you looked at our conditions page at all this season you would have seen Powder King Mountain Resort crowding the top of the list of most powder in 24 hours on almost any given day. But have you ever wondered where the heck Powder King is, and more importantly – why haven’t you been there to swim through that powder?

Vermilion

Vermilion, east of Edmonton is admittedly flat. But then there is the river valley. Toss in some trails on the undulating topo and you’ve got yourself the training ground for one of Canada’s best cross-country skiing Olympians. But there is so much more than trails.

Check out what we discovered on a grand day out.

Murray Ridge

Murray Ridge Ski Hill and Terrain Park near Fort St. James, B.C. came from humble beginnings and is still humble. It’s all about keeping the costs down, so everyone can learn to love winter sports. The volunteers are passionate about their “little gem” that isn’t so little!

Hudson Bay

Like a kid in a candy store, any powder hound will delight in the selection of sweets offered at Hudson Bay Mountain. Trust us – tons of terrain, heaps of powder, glades, a terrain park and a place to drink wobbly-pops are all far more fun than a candy store.
