British Co­lum­bia is fa­mous for its re­sorts, and there are plenty to add to your list.

Holiday with Kids - - Ski Northern Hemisphere -

British Co­lum­bia de­liv­ers the kind of scenery that will ren­der you speech­less. And as for the snow? Un­be­liev­ably good.

There are 13 ma­jor re­sorts in BC of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing from black-di­a­mond steeps and chutes, to wide-open ter­rain and tree lines. Most of them of­fer ski-in, ski-out ac­com­mo­da­tion, mak­ing it easy for your fam­ily to ac­cess the slopes.

While Whistler, Sun Peaks, Sil­ver­star and Big White are all mag­nif­i­cent for fam­i­lies, here are some oth­ers to con­sider. They are not as well known among the Aus­tralian crowd, so they can de­liver great value for money, un­crowded slopes and a snow hol­i­day you will never for­get.

Fernie Alpine Re­sort

Fernie is the home of leg­endary pow­der with up to 11 me­tres of snow a year and the largest alpine bowl ski­ing in the Cana­dian Rock­ies. This quin­tes­sen­tial Cana­dian re­sort of­fers an authen­tic laid-back cul­ture, great après-ski and plenty for kids. skifer­nie.com
