Powder King makes friends on powder days
Powder King regular Michael Watson describes the skiing experience at the area, on one of its frequent powder days, like this: “You get that shot of euphoria, and you come out and wait for your friend and they come out from a different line, and they look at you and they’re just like, ‘woah,’ and you’re both like ‘Yeah!’”
“It’s almost indescribable to explain to someone who hasn’t experienced it, that rush and focus at the same time.”
“It’s the flow state,” adds his adventure buddy, Jessie Seniunas. “Just focusing on what you’re doing, there’s no disruptions in your brain from the world, there’s no noise. You’re not thinking about what you’ve gotta do later it’s just – oh that’s a cool line. For hours and hours.”
The intensity generated out of such shared experiences creates strong bonds between friends, but also to this northern mountain. The Powder King loyal are serious about their hill.
At two hours’ drive north from Prince George, open Thursday to Monday through the main season, the ski resort’s northern locale attracts a certain type of skier. Powder seeking, fun-loving but driven to find something special.

In between powder days, there’s even more to explore within five minutes of the resort. Azouzetta Lake Lodge, on its namesake lake, offers perfect down day relaxation in cozy A-frame chalets, with snowshoeing out your door on the lake, surrounded by mountain peaks.
At over 12 metres annual average snowfall, Powder King is more than worth the trek and the time for an experience that will leave you wanting more.
