Last week our Winter Ambassadors travelled to Mount Washington Alpine Resort, SilverStar Mountain Resort, RED Mountain Resort, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort. It was a cold, sunny week across most of BC, which meant the light snow stuck around. Here are the highlights from our ambassadors.
A blizzard coated the mountain and surrounding area in more than 20 cm (8 inches) of fresh snow. This was Leo’s view the next morning.
SilverStar experienced heavy snow and bluebird days. Ben spent his time experiencing all the winter activities the resort had to offer. Days and nights were filled with snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and dinner by way of horse-drawn sleigh.
The last run of the day off the Alpine Meadows Chair at SilverStar Mountain Resort looked a little something like this.
Leigh and Spring spent part of the week exploring local history at RED. Among their discoveries: cabins hidden in the forest. Some show signs of a current occupant (e.g., smoke rising from a chimney), while others are no longer in use. Après ski, locals head to Rafters Lounge to enjoy a brew and swap stories of epic boot packs, secret powder stashes, and favourite runs.
Looking down on Rossland from the top of RED Mountain Resort probably looks much the same as it did a century ago. The skiing at RED is steep and deep.
It was a week of untracked cold powder and sparkling sunshine at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Zoya Lynch chased a wild bunch of local legends around the mountain all week.
