Top 5 Ski Resorts

Kicking Horse

The expert skiers paradise with approximately 60% of runs hitting the black diamond or higher
mark. Lifts were only installed in 2000 and was previously a top heli-skiing location. Kicking
Horse is often compared to Jackson Hole and offers some serious steeps with its 4133 vertical
drop.

Lake Louise

Lake Louise is one of those few places where you can stand in awe of the view around you;
from the stunning lake itself to riding true in the Rockies. Lake Louise hosts the World Cup
races each autumn. The varied terrain at the lake is stunning with something for everyone –
being one of the biggest areas in North America to ski.

Red Mountain

Located in the Kootenay Rockies, Red offers the world’s biggest cat-skiing operation with a
tenure of 19,300 acres and prides itself on being the only cat-skiing operator in British Columbia
to run trips for intermediate, advanced and expert skiers or snowboarders.

Revelstoke

When you’re stuck between the Monashee and Selkirk Mountain ranges, expect 480 to 720
inches of white fluffy snow to fall annually. Couple that with the hill boasting North America’s
longest vertical descent at 5,620 feet, you’ll spend far more time riding pow then on a lift.
Revelstoke has also been dubbed the heli-ski capital as well. The endless pow days not to be
missed.

Sunshine

With one of the longest ski seasons, Sunshine offers natural snow as the base elevation starts at over 5,400 feet, not to mention the 3,300 acres of ski runs and a 3,000 foot vertical drop. What’s not to love about natural pow from November to late May.
