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.
My Rating:
I am a Shames locale and we are honoured to be part of the Mountain Guide 2012. We are having a record snow year. A little better than 9 feet base at our lodge and 11 feet mid mountain as of Jan 6. Shames has gone through some changes in the past couple of years and come out stronger than ever. The hill has been purchased by a new group of skiers, again mainly from northwest BC. We are Canada's first not for profit community service co-op. I am proud to be one of about 800 individual members and 100 business members of My Mountain Co-op. To learn more about us here are some links to our site and some shamless publicty. By the way we are on a new schedule this season closed Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.
