Northern BC is going off!

Want no crowds? Big Terrain? All you can eat pow?

From Brian Hall who owns the Storks Nest Inn in Smithers at Hudson Bay Mountain "Toured at the ski area today. 45cm fresh. Minus 10. Was getting faceshots skinning uphill". The forecast for Northern BC for the next couple of weeks looks decidedly good for pow and temperatures. Shames is forecasting 48cms over the week to the next weekend (BC's Family Day long weekend). Smithers is forecasting "just" 34 cms new on top of the 45 new they just had.

This isn't Smthers or Terrace . If it were all you'd see would be a snorkel

How to get there

Note that you can fly, ski, stay at Terrace and Smithers for about the same cost as it takes to get to Whistler from Vancouver on a typical package. The cost is from $650 to $700 per person for a two day weekend for 2 days lift tickets, 3 night accommodations, and flight all included. You must fly via Hawkair to get the buy one get one free deal (example fare I used for back-of-envelope calculations was the Hawkair Queue Fare from Vancouver to Smithers round trip; cost was ~ $ 530 all in)

Travel packages for Smithers (Hudson Bay Mountain) are here. Travel packages for Terrace are here. You have to call the hotels for the link or look at this package for a representative price

This also isn't Terrace or Smithers. Again, if it were, all you'd see is a trail of cold smoke

Dunfee—you should probably send me as a correspondent to check this out…

    Thursday the 5th it snowed 38cms at Hudson Bay Mountain in Smithers.  That was on top of the 45cms new they had when it snowed earlier in the week.  That day there were 18 cars in the parking lot!

    Friday it snowed another 20cms which was more like 35cms in the windloaded trees.  4 more ski hill and slackcountry laps.

    Saturday (yesterday) the 7th there was 80cms of storms snow in the Hankin backcountry area.  After suffering through the trailbreaking we did 3 laps

    Did another 3 laps at Hankin today.  Just 5cms new.  Wow

Too late.  Already researching this.  80cms of storm snow.  Minus 10,c

Instagram Roundup: It Snowed This Weekend. A Lot.

In case you missed it, this weekend marked the beginning of winter for the northern Rockies. We know it’s only September, but Montana, Wyoming, and even parts of Colorado were blessed with some pretty significant snowfall. Some of us just couldn’t resist the itch, and dusted off our skis and boots to take them out for their first walks of the season. Well, we all know that with early season skiing comes some serious spraying, so here are a handful of the best captures we found on the ol’
