In 1990, 150 investors, mainly local northwest BC skiers, decided it
was time to tap into the region’s goods. After researching several
locales in the province, they settled on Shames. They chose wisely.
Thanks to the Coast range and the Pacific Ocean, the resort
receives 475 inches of annual snowfall. And while the mountain’s
T-bar and double chair serve a small area, the access to incredibly
big and varied backcountry terrain is unreal. Shames is closed
Mondays and Tuesdays, so come Wednesday, it’s on.
