TransWorld’s Top Picks

The BC Powder Highway is vast and conditions can vary, but when they’re right, you really can’t go wrong. We got it good at Eagle Pass, Island Lake Lodge, and CMH Monashees. Many thanks to Tourism British Columbia and the Canadian Tourism Commission as well.

 Resorts $

When the conditions are prime, it’s hard to beat lift laps. These resorts offer world-renown terrain and snow with plenty of sidecountry options.

Huts $

From DIY guiding and meals to fully-guided, fully-catered retreats, these backcountry huts can take you deeper. Bring a splitboard and get ready to earn those turns.

Snowcat Operations $$–$$$$

Like one big powder limo, a snowcat can motor you and your crew to the goods while you kick back and crank tunes. Most operate out of remote lodges and offer all-inclusive, fully guided multi-day packages.

Heli $$$$

Little compares to the access and variety of terrain a heli operation delivers. The ride comes at a premium, but generally includes gourmet food, snacks, lodging, and avalanche equipment. Start saving now.
