Powderqueen hits the destination-trip jackpot at British Columbia’s Red Mountain and Whitewater. These two resorts seem to have everything you need for an off-the-charts adventure: terrain, trees, powder, cat-skiing, laid-back locals, and two great villages.
Red Mountain and Whitewater: BC’s Best-Kept Secret
Northeast Ski Blogger Summit, Day 1: I’ve been imagining skiing Jay Peak since 1999. I was working late one night in December and started fantasizing. I googled “best powder in the east” and I found Jay Peak’s website. It sounded perfect to me. Tons of snow and trees.
After a long drive last night, we woke up this morning at 6:30 and it started to snow at 7 am. The forecast was for 1-2 inches, but I was hoping for some of that legendary Jay magic. When we got to the mountain at 9 am, it was really coming down, and it snowed until 2:30.
