You’re likely get to hear live music in the day lodge which only adds to the cozy ambiance while you’re having lunch, or putting your ski boots up during apres ski. It’s just one of the ways that the resort adds a local flavour to your skiing experience.

Bet you’ve never seen a dog sled team delivering mail before. Well you can in Quesnel, during the annual Gold Rush Trail Sled Dog Mail Run. Once a year. mushers and their fleet of huskies participate in the mail run, a fun event for the whole family, and a celebration of the history of the area.

When the sun shines at Troll Resort, it’s tough to beat. Local pro tip: Skies are typically clearer in the mornings which means getting out the door early to get in some sweet runs while you soak up a little Vitamin D.

Don’t pass up the deliciousness of the famed locally made cinnamon buns at Troll. A little dose of sugar will keep you going on all morning. But the soups and the burgers are excellent, too. We were blown away by the quality of the food that the small team in the kitchen puts out. Because you know, half the fun of skiing is re-fueling in the day lodge with your friends.

When You Go

Book your stay onsite at Troll through the AirBnB listing. But if you are looking to accommodate a bigger group, keep in mind Quesnel is only 40 mins down the road.

Quesnel is home to a bounty of Nordic ski, fat biking and snowshoe trails, uncovered in this recent Gold City story.

Troll Ski Resort is a happening place less then a two hours drive from Prince George Airport, home to increased WestJet service through this winter via WestJet link.

You’ll find endless fresh turns that will rock your world at Murray Ridge in Fort St. James, B.C. The bonus is there are no lift lines and by the end of the day your legs will be pumping from all the vertical. Trust that those snowy stashes aren’t going anywhere but be sure to leave early from home to get as many fresh tracks in as possible. This is the winter to seize the moment.

You won’t be disappointed with the groomers either. The run that goes right to the lodge door is pretty sweet, making it easy to pop in for lunch or après ski. We definitely recommend the poutine for fueling the rest of your day on the slopes.

The scenery is beautiful with stands of trees encompassing the ridge. And, if you’re a glade skier, you’ll be in your glory with the prime conditions on Zeek’s Ridge. The endless, fresh pow turns will have you grinning from tree to tree.

Richard Haslinger is the man who got the wheels turning at Murray Ridge in the ‘70s. He was a special person who brought the local community together to volunteer and donate their time to build the resort.

We discovered a few cool things on our recent trip to Smithers and Hudson Bay Mountain. First, a local pro tip: catch the Mountain Bus for only $5 roundtrip up to the mountain and down after the day. But if you miss the bus at the end of the day, you can always take the non-motorized option of skiing down to town.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8WDRUp-0lA&feature=emb_title

We got up early to catch the shuttle bus and were treated to a pretty pink light illuminating Hudson Bay Mountain, that alpenglow that only means one thing. It’s going to be a great day on the slopes. You won’t regret waking up early.

Want to learn more about skiing at Hudson Bay? Make sure to check out this great story on SnowSeekers https://www.snowseekers.ca/story/get-set-peak-hudson-bay-pow-day

Hop on the T-Bar to the only lift on the resort that deposits you on some steep and deep runs that will leave you grinning for days. We lost all sense of time popping pillows of pow, skiing through the trees and catching some crazy beautiful views from up here.

Not ready to call it the end of our carving day and rather than take the bus, we took the ski-out back into town. With side hits galore, and a nicely groomed trail, it was the perfect way to wrap up an awesome day at Hudson Bay Mountain.

I can’t stop thinking about those sweet endless fresh stashes of snow and the moments where we were shoulder deep in spray.

Don’t forget to check out the terrain park. It’s perfect for beginners and is just keep getting built up throughout the winter. The soft snow makes it super forgiving but it’s also beautiful run through even if you don’t hit any of the jibs.

When You Go

Tourism Smithers and Hudson Bay Mountain Resort make it easy to ski this season with their Ski and Stay website, home to ski and stay packages.

If you want to make the most of your road trip to Powder King, it’s best to leave early from Prince George so you can get in an epic day of skiing. This really is the perfect road trip and so close to town.

Massive Snow, the season’s been BIG! There is a reason its called Powder Town – read more https://www.snowseekers.ca/story/powder-king-more-lives-its-name

When we arrived at Powder King, the flakes were some of the biggest, fluffiest we’ve ever seen. It is such a good feeling to show up to a ski hill and know it’s going to be a good day. You feel that relentless stoke in the air that everyone shares, feeding the need for massive powder.

You know that feeling you get when the huge spraying pow turns are larger than you? Well that’s how our recent visit to Powder King turned out. The consistent pow stashes left us grinning all day.

When your hand is dragging through the snow you know it’s an extra epic day. How often do you get to do that? The snow was so deep you could almost touch it while standing off piste; it was nearly hip dip.

We love the fact that there are zero lift lines and getting chairlifts all to ourselves. More people need to know about this place, is what we were thinking. We felt like we were getting away with something as we broke through a misty cloud on our way up on the chairlift and then ran smack into the midst of all incredible snow. We were laughing because we couldn’t believe we were being treated to fresh turns everywhere we went.

If you’re looking for a place to hang your board or skis at the end of the day, don’t forget that Azouzetta Lodge is five minutes from Powder King. They have cabins for rent. And, we admit that we fell for the amazing cinnamon buns, eggs benny and quality food that is sure to keep you fueled for big day on the slopes.

When You Go

If you are heading to Powder King, SnowSeekers wants to remind you to always ski with a buddy and a whistle. Our advice is to “ski with a buddy” which is easy because it’s easy to make friends here. The whistle is a must, considering the tree wells here are DEEP because of the bounty of POW waiting on almost every run.
