Get excited for the 2020 snow season

A new season means new  infrastructure, events and more!

What we really want is snow. And lots of it. But the resort's can't just offer snow. They need to up the game every year. More lifts, more runs and more fun. Check out what's new at a few of Western Canada's favourite winter resorts.

Apex Mountain

Apex is getting ready for the season by brushing away 1,100 acres of ski runs so that when the snow flies you'll be able to shred the powder as fast as you can.

Big White

Big news for Big White! They will be playing host to the Barrels & Berms Snowboardcross World Cup from January 20 to 27, 2020.

From January 29th until April 5th, Hudson Bay Mountain will be open 7 days a week. Which brings their snow season to an awesome 125 operational days.

Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks Resort is pleased to announce replacement plans for the Crystal chairlift at Canada’s Second Largest Ski Area. The new lift will be a Doppelmayr fixed grip quad that will increase uphill capacity by 20%. A key feature of the project is a lift realignment that will see the top terminal relocated to the Top of the World on Mt. Tod, providing enhanced and more convenient access to a much larger pod of ski terrain at this slightly higher elevation.

Manning Park

Speaking of new chairs, Manning Park is working hard to install their brand-new Doppelmayr quadruple chairlift to be completed for Winter 2019/20

RED Mountain

RED Mountain Resort just got radder. The B.C. resort—long-time favourite of powder-hounds and fall-line aficionados—continues to climb through the big leagues with yet another addition of new terrain for its guests to recreate on. The Topping Chair expansion set for the 2019/20 season adds to RED Mountain’s stature of already being in the Top 10, size-wise, for North America with total skiable acreage at 3,850.

Revelstoke

Revelstoke will soon have another awesome chairlift that is now under construction. Welcome the Stellar chair that honors a native bird called the Steller's Jay.
