Smithers, B.C. – Most people’s intuition kicks in the first time they meet someone and as we all know, first impressions are key. If the Northern B.C. community of Smithers were a person, I know it would be one of my best friends. Why? For one thing it has one of the highest concentrations of outdoor adventure stores – per capita – in the country and for another, as our new #SkiNorthBC friends describe it, it’s a place that is wrapped in "alpine everything."
“It’s like a little ski village,” says Austin Gray, a resident of Prince George who recently made his first adventure into Smithers. “The way the downtown looks, it could be a big resort like you find in southern B.C., except this is the town.”
Smithers has a very vibrant downtown core and all the while, Hudson Bay Mountain Resort watches over and is visible from almost every spot in town. The ski hill and the community are so connected, you can literally ski right off the mountain and into town via a four-kilometer connector trail.
