When Mother Nature created the Cariboos, she had skiing in mind. Tucked into the Canoe Valley in BC’s Columbia Range, Cariboo Lodge accesses a chunk of skiable territory half the size of Switzerland. It’s a powder oasis filled with perfectly pitched, high alpine bowls, naturally gladed tree runs and steep chutes. Rounded peaks make for ideal heli pick-ups. If skiing 100,000 vertical feet in five days doesn’t appeal to you, consider getting your head checked. And those 7:30 am stretch classes? Go!
