Have you had this conversation?
“What are we doing for spring break?” says the kid holding the snowboard trying to drop hints.
“It’s a month away…isn’t it?” says delusional parent staring at the sink of dirty dishes.
“No, Mom…it’s starting this week.”
In a dream world, the kid would put down the snowboard and help with the dishes so Mom could quickly plan the holiday. Instead, we are doing the planning for you. Here’s SnowSeekers’ top ideas for an epic vacation to popular resorts and some truly bucket list adventures that will blow the buckles off your teen’s boots.
Kimberley Alpine Resort makes family fun simple
Don’t you love waking up in the morning to the sound of the chairlift starting up? At Kimberley Alpine Resort, that’s a reality with so many on-slope options for accommodation. Top that off with a wide variety of terrain, ski camps and lessons, it makes for an easy choice for a holiday. Rent fat tire bikes for an afternoon of thrills and spills on the set trail on the golf course. The town is only a few kilometres away offering exceptional choices for dinner.
Vernon has tons of ski options
Maybe you want to shake up your skiing experience with some downhill and cross-country skiing, or if your kid deserves a reward for stellar grades, maybe some backcountry is in order. Vernon and SilverStar can make that happen. SilverStar has tons of terrain to keep the family busy and a village full of entertainment from fat tire bike trails to horse-drawn carriage rides. But if you want some skinny-ski action, stop in at Sovereign Lake just a couple of kilometres down the road from SilverStar. Over 105 kilometres of trails are waiting. And for that A-student, head to the untouched alpine meadows in the Monashees with KingFisher Heli Skiing.
Powder King lives up to its name
Boasting over 41 feet of snow annually – is amazing. That’s the same distance as a standard city bus is from headlamp to tailpipe…in snow…vertically. So, imagine taking the kids and the fat skis so far off the grid – some 200 km north of Prince George for an amazing week of frolicking in the forest. Powder King offers both lift access and reasonably priced cat skiing in bowl after bowl of dreamy glades. Talk about bonding moment!
