With more than 41 feet of annual snowfall, the Rocky Mountains of northern British Columbia have no shortage of powder. But you don't have to be an expert skier to enjoy it at the aptly named Powder King, about two hours north of Canada's Prince George.
If you want to stash the skis or snowboard for a bit, the resort says you can lash on snowshoes for a different kind of outdoor winter adventure.
Powder King sits at just 3,000 feet, but it's in a snow belt that provides good snowshoeing conditions from October to June.
The resort has three new trails this winter. The easiest trek is along the Wanderer, a half-mile stretch through the pines. The mid-level Explorer covers 1.3 miles with beautiful views of the McMurray Range. For the heartier, more experienced group, the Challenger offers a six- to seven-mile adventure through forests and meadows.
