While these resorts offer lots of amenities for families and beginners it’s also a region where those more experienced can really enjoy the ultimate terrain and snow conditions that the region offers. There are 7 resorts in the Kootenay/Alberta border region that are part of the world-renowned “Powder Highway”. They include:

  • Revelstoke Mountain
  • Red Mountain

  • Kicking Horse
  • Fernie
