Skiing road trips tie in epic snow, après, spring festival vibes

Putting a snow-seeking road trip on the calendar is like buying festival tickets. It not only gives any snow or festival seeker something to look forward to, but it also adds a new spring in the step every day closer!

For us here at SnowSeekers, it’s been fifteen years connecting our snow seeking community with ski road trips and travel tips, and this season is like no other. 

Here is a round up to some of the top road trips making March soar, with skiing and apres events… buckle up and let’s go!


clockwise R - L: 1) Sun Peaks powder 2) Apres with Nancy Greene Raine 3) Nordic at SilverStar Mountain Resort.

Put Sun Peaks and SilverStar together for those looking to see two worlds collide. As we talk in this SnowSeekers FB live, this is a road trip combo that can score you two downhill slopes, but also two nordic networks. Time it right, and you could also land yourself in one of interior BC's wildest spring ski festivals, SEISMIC, running Mar 29 - Apr 7!

A 2.5 hour commute between SilverStar to Sun Peaks, makes it an easy road trip for say two nights at the Star, and two nights at the Peaks. Let us know post your four days of glory where the perma-grin meter sits. 

In this story by Lisa Kadane, she gets into all the details on how to make the most of this road trip that can come with Olympic-sized experiences.

#skaditour The Skadi Tour, BC 

If you’ve been following SnowSeekers for a while, you’ve encountered Nurse Groomer before, the snow seeking animal who’s done a Western Canada first, having skied all 78 skiable spots (where lifts are turning) across Alberta & BC.

Tidbits of Change took inspiration from Nurse (their friend and co-conspirator) to build a tour that takes father-daugther duo Greg and Hali on a ski-themed tiny house tour across all of BC’s white beauties. Their 42-stop, 42-day tour puts them in all of BC’s lift serviced arenas for the point of encouraging more family connections. 

Skiing ALL of a province’s ski spots in one single road trip… now that’s the way to send it! 

Check out pictures from the tiny house they are packing here as well as inspiration for events and après worth connecting to.

Icefields Parkway Connector

T-bar Ridge at Marmot Basin is one bookend of the epic Icefields Parkway connector, an epic road trip experience.

In Alberta, is the opportunity to bring together to Rockies classics, Marmot Basin in Jasper linking to Lake Louise Ski Resort. Along the way you will travel one of the world’s top drives, the Icefields Parkway. 

Be sure and do this drive around sunset (of course after an epic day at either location), so you can have your mind blown trying to keep the rig on the road while you taking towering glaciers & true mountain peaks. Marmot Pride amps up the spring ski party over 10 days in April, from Apr 12-21.


A #SkiNorthBC epic, clockwise R - L: 1)Powder King 2&3)Hudson Bay Mountain Resort 4)Cabin near Wells 5)Troll Mountain Resort.

Our loyal SnowSeekers community should well know the opportunities to shred #SkiNorthBC by now, but that's just the beginning when you hit the road to ski and play in northern BC. 

Connecting those nordic and snowshoe fans in a new way, this season we are recommending either theme will serve you stellar when you connect Quesnel to Wells, along the Barkerville Highway. 

The funky community of Wells, and the hospitality of its locals, pair that with the community of Quesnel and its après options to serve up a ski or snowshoe adventures that will serve your soul in all the good ways. 

SnowSeekers has brought these two communities together in these Brenda Beatty beauties. Take your choice: 

#1) You wanna go nordic?
A growing cross-country network between Quesnel and Wells includes ski loops with backcountry cabin stays.
#2) Or you wanna score some history & sink in with some snowshoes?
