Powder King, B.C. – Snow was falling heavily as Chris Wheeler (aka @ApresWheeler on social media) pulled into the parking lot at Powder King Ski Resort in Northern B.C in late January 2018. Not being one to waste time on a powder day, Wheeler grabbed his camera gear and hit the chair. Next thing he knew he was shooting powder slashes with a local snowboarder who had offered to show him a few of his hidden gems.
“We were tree skiing, all in bounds,” Wheeler recalls, "and then did another loop and there were powder pockets everywhere.”
Before the day was over, Wheeler had hooked up with four different crews of riders and skiers, all eager to share their favourite spots with him. He had even managed to get an invite to a birthday party at one of the cabins on the mountain, including a place to crash if he wanted to stay for more powder the next day.
That, in its essence, is Powder King.
