Towards the end of March we heard it was dumping in the interior BC, so we quickly packed up and headed out to Red Mountain Resort in Rossland BC to hopefully get some pow turns in. And as you can see by some of our photos below we weren’t disappointed. Red seems to always come through with snow for us. it is a bit of a trek to get there, 8 hr drive from Vancouver or about 7.5 from Calgary. It’s basically in the middle of BC down by the border. When it’s snowing though, it’s definitely worth the extra few hrs of drive time. You can check them out at www.redresort.com .
Last week a few team guys and I headed out to Big White Resort to find and shred some powder we’ve been craving the last few weeks. And Big White never seems to disappoint us. We truly love this mountain. Such amazing natural terrain with tree jibs and drops everywhere. Big White is HUGE. 15 lifts and 7355 acres with an average snowfall of 24.5 ft and some of the friendliness lifties and staff we’ve met. It’s located just under an hours drive from Kelowna BC Canada.
Some of our favourite runs were on Gem Lake and on the Powder Chair, where we rode some wicked glades with some sweet cliffs lines. Anywhere from small to huge drops, you pick. The groomers are sick as well. Lots of side hits and rollers to keep you busy till the bottom. They also have a wicked snowboard park and fun as hell boarder cross course to rip though.
After riding, Big Whites village is a pretty rad place to hang out and grab a beer. Lots of choices for pubs and restaurants. We loved ‘The Woods’ and the patio at ‘Sessions’. There always seems to be lots going on. Anything from skating on their huge outdoor rink, tubing or even night riding which they boast as western Canadas largest resort night skiing area @ 38 acres.
Do yourself a favour, avoid standing in lift lines and dealing with tourist filled groomers all day and go check out Big White Resort.
This past week we packed up a few team guys and headed out to Calabogie Peaks Resort to shred some east coast groomers and get a few photos/vids. And we had a blast. Calabogie is located about 50 min west of Ottawa Ont. Canada. Lots of snow and tons of rollers and little hits everywhere to pop off of. The people are friendly with a very laid back vibe. We were up on the weekend and were expecting to be waiting in long lift lines, but that wasn’t the case at all. Basically we had back to back runs with very few people to get in our way on the runs. Pleasant surprise for sure. We’ve been to a few other resorts around the Ottawa area and spent most of our day waiting in line ups and trying to deal with over crowded runs, but not here. We stayed right at the base of the mountain and enjoyed some great beer on tap, relaxed in their hot tub and met some great people. Definitely check them out if you’re in the area (www.calabogie.com), we’ll be back soon for sure.
