About the Ski Resort

Nestled in the pristine wilderness of the Canadian Rockies, Powder King offers the best of the great outdoors, from virgin snow and breath taking drops, to the gentle groomed slopes of beginner runs.

Every year Powder King hosts several prestigious events, including the Inter-Provincial Freestyles. Teams from Whistler, Northern Alberta, Central Alberta, and the Canadian Freestyle all choose Powder King as their mountain of preference to train their athletes.

A million miles from stress, but only 500 yards from the highway, Powder King is located in the center of the Pine Pass in Northern British Columbia.
