You'll feel like you've hit the jackpot in this ski town
Smithers is known for its epic amounts of snow, but what some people might not know is just how darn nice the people are that live here in the town close to Hudson Bay Mountain ski area.
One doesn't outweigh the other; it's definitely a combination of the people and the snow that make this place so special.
As I explored the town, I instantly felt that any passerby would stop to help jump my car battery if the need arose, or give me a lift to the ski hill. And, even reveal their coveted snow stashes.
We loaded into the cat, first stopping untouched alpine with big open bowls and steeps, leaving us to choose any line we wanted. The immense scale of terrain in the Babine Mountains looked even grander in the early morning light. Dropping into untouched powder all day long never got tired, but eventually our legs did. Our smiles were non-stop, just like the runs. It was everything we had hoped for face shots, epic terrain and the best crew to ski with.
Leaving with a hefty list to accomplish on our next Smithers trip, we felt content. Our legs were tired, but our hearts were contented, as we loaded onto the train, knowing full well that we'd be back to this gem before too long.
