Escape to Kootenay ski country luxury.
- Known for dry, powdery snow, the Kootenay Rockies region is home to more than half of BC’s major ski resorts.
Copper Point Resort is less than a 20-minute drive from both Panorama Mountain Village and Fairmont Hot Springs ski hills. Wake up in a sleek new Copper Point suite and be on the slopes in no time. When the lifts close, the resort’s cozy in-suite fireplaces, indoor pool and steamy indoor and outdoor hot tubs are so close.
Skiing here is powdery heaven. Nearby ski areas get as much as 479cm/188in of snow each year. The slopes at Panorama Mountain Village include 120 trails and bowls plus two terrain parks. Fairmont Hot Springs has 14 runs accessed by a chair lift and platter lift.
Kicking Horse, Kimberley Alpine Resort, Fernie Alpine Resort and other ski areas along the Kootenay Rockies “Powder Highway” are also within day-trip distance.
Go off-grid for steep powder with local heli-skiing/boarding operators. In season, RK Heliski runs daily group and private adventures. Packages include multiple runs, gear rental, breakfast and a packed lunch.
