Renowned for its legendary snowfall and world-class hospitality, British Columbia holds the crown for being the best ski spot in Canada, possibly even the world. Its endless meadows, wide-open bowls, and dreamy pillow lines have to be skied to be believed.
The finest slopes in BC are found far from the resorts, and are only accessible through alpine huts. These cozy cabins and chalets provide fantastic lines straight from the doorstep, along with homemade meals and soothing saunas for après-ski enjoyment—royal treatment that befits the runs.
