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.
