Here’s when 18 B.C. ski resorts open for the 2018-9 season


The slopes are calling, and it’s time to know just when to answer. Grab your gear, because ski and snowboard season is upon us in beautiful B.C.

From the mountains just minutes outside of Metro Vancouver to wonderful runs and resorts further afield, B.C. is packed with peaks perfect for winter adventures. And, hey, even if you are more about the apres experience, the opening of ski season means fireplaces will be lit and coffee will be spiked for you to enjoy in your coziest sweaters.

The 2018-2019 ski season in B.C. is predicted to be a shorter one, with mild, dry conditions and less late-season snow.

Not at all upset about the sunshine turning to rain today because I’m praying it’s putting snow on our mountains. This year my goal is to visit new big interior mountains, as well as visiting @therealmtbakerskiarea more. Last year we randomly decided to check out @apexmtnresort and it has really sparked my excitement for new terrain. I loved it! Actually, excited is an understatement. . . #girlswhoride #snowboardchick #canadiangirl #snowboarder #basicandbadass #beautifulbritishcolumbia #cypressmountain #vancity #exploretocreate #exploregram #snowboardgirl #snowboarding #mountainslovers #instagramdaily #instagood #vancityhype #vancitybuzz #vancouverstyle #outdoorwomen #pnw #pnwlife @ridesnowboards @volcomwomens @sandboxland @zealoptics
