About
Nestled in the pristine wilderness of the Canadian Rockies, Powder King offers the best of the great outdoors, with an amazing annual snowfall of 41 feet, our terrain ranges from breath taking drops for the adventurous skier, to the gentle groomed slopes of beginner runs. A million miles from stress, but only 500 yards from the highway, Powder King is located in the center of the Pine Pass in Northern British Columbia, Canada. “Those who have visited would say that it's the best riding they've experienced and they don't plan on telling anyone about it. it's the whisper of the north.” What you need to know: - There is no cell connection, don't get distracted from your ride, talk to each other. Pretend it's 1992. - Be ready for fresh lines all day long. - Learn how to ride this wicked powder to the best and have a lesson with our terrific instructors. PS: Don't forget your snorkel. Face shots are the norm at Powder King!

A place to find lines of untracked powder.
Mar. 2017 • Solo
Scenic, wilderness and a bit remote may sum up the location. At Azouzetta Lake you can find log style cabins if looking for a neat place to stay. The hill is steeper but not straight down. On real powder days its fun to go find the steepest parts of the mountain. Hiking the summit is worth the view and depending on the conditions of the day the side you pick can be very rewarding. The West side of the mountain you can find more open trees to find powder just be careful to be aware of how far off the hill you are getting. Access from top-T or hiking the summit.

Hidden gem

Worth the drive! Especially if there is new snow! Chair offers some nice options but Tbar to the top provides the best runs and views.

Lessons for our grandaughter.
Jan. 2017 • Family
We took our granddaughter to PK for her first ever ski experience. For about $40 not including the tip she got an 1.5 hour group lesson. As it turned out she was the only one in the group. We had our time mixed up and were complaining even though we were wrong the instructor came out early and started the lesson early. Not only that they allowed her to practice with the equipment on the bunny hill prior to her lesson beginning. I wish I could recall her instructors name because he was awesome! Patient, kind and encouraging. They made it up the big hill once too. We did not ski as we wanted to watch the lesson but we are headed up this weekend on the PK express as the hill looks incredible.

Middle of Nowhere...but someplace you need to ski
Feb. 2017 • Family
Visited Powder King with my 7 year old daughter who is a ski racer. The temp was frigid so the hill was practically deserted. We loved this place, there are numerous beginner runs, a large variety of intermediate groomers where you can get some great speed as they are steep, wide and you can see all the way to the bottom. We didn't get to ski many of the expert runs as there were warning signs of marginal ski conditions. However we will certainly be back to shred this perfect mix of powder and groomed runs in the future.

It really feels like this is the middle of nowhere and the amenities at the hill are very basic, small lodge and dining area with some retail gear and a rental shop all in the same common room, but this is also part of it's charm.

we have been to the big mountains, sunshine, Lake Lousie, Fernie etc. but really loved the backwoods charm and untouched areas we encountered here. It was almost like having our own private mountain.

Great hill for all different skill levels, skiers and snowboarders
Feb. 2015 • Family
We have had a lot of fun exploring the many runs. There is a good variety for different skiing and snowboarding levels: green, blue and black diamond runs, groomed and un-groomed runs.
The people that operate the lifts and other areas (rental shop, snack shop, ski patrol and restaurant) are super friendly and helpful. Loved our experience at Powder King and will recommend the resort!

Lots of snow but not much for steeps. That being said there's all the boot-top blue runs you could ask for.

It's all about the snow....
Mar. 2013
We ski frequently at PK and are never dissapointed in the snow conditions, almost always can find fresh powder. However to call it a resort is a stretch!! We have stayed at the hostel and although it was clean and comfortable I did not find it family friendly at all. We have not seen a lot of improvement to the hill over the years which is dissapointing....however the powder and small crowds will never dissapoint!!

PK Rocks
Apr. 2013 • Solo
I have had a season's pass for PK for the last 21 years. I am 55+ so the year's skiing is only $370. Considering that I get 50+ days a year, that's very cheap.

The snow does not get better than it is at PK. Beautiful powder and there is generally a pile of it. Now that they have expanded the hill to twice its former size, powder all day is often the norm. The tree skiing is premium.

Thursday is my favorite day as they are closed M-W giving the hill a chance to accumulate some serious powder. Friday rocks as there are never enough skiers to ski it out on Thursday. I often take Saturday off as it is busier - sometimes you have to wait up to 3 minutes to get on the lift. Sorry I am spoiled. I always go on Sunday as not skiing for 4 days is just not right.

I enjoy going to the pub for a bite to eat and a cold one. The beer is as cheap as it gets and the food is generally decent. The lodge could be improved but who really goes to the hill to be impressed by the lodge?
