About the Ski Resort

Shames is known for its "drop dead views" and more snow than any other lift-served ski area in North America!

Twenty marked trails (over 133 acres) from beginner to double black diamond are accessed by one double chairlift, a T-bar and a handle tow.

Natural glades offer 86 acres of awesome tree skiing. Shames has a vertical of 1600 ft. (488m) within the ski area boundaries and spectacular backcountry skiing like you've never experienced before!

Shames facilities include bars, a learning center, shops, and a customer service center.

Shames Mountain is the end result of a dream of two groups of local visionaries. One group was those who searched out the site and the other group was the 150-plus local investors who saw it through to fruition in 1990.

Shames Mountain is located 35 km (22 Mi.) west of Terrace in the spectacular Shames Valley. Shames is nestled in the majestic Coast Mountain Range of British Columbia.
