Winter Experiences


Visitors who choose to explore the Northeast BC wilderness in winter can hike to frozen waterfalls, cross-country ski, snowmobile, snowshoe, and ice-fish surrounded by a snow-covered landscape.

In Tumbler Ridge, there are endless cross-country ski trails and backcountry terrain to explore. Take a wander to the otherworldly landscape of the Shipyard-Titanic boulder fields or snowmobile The Terminator trail. For cross-country skiers, the 6.7-km (4.1-mi) loop on the Wolverine Trail to the Lost Haven Cabin is a must. While outside Fort Nelson, the cross-country ski network at the Demonstration Forest offers 4.5 km (2.8 mi) of groomed and maintained trails and an additional 4.7 km (2.9 mi) of trail on the Tsátenneh Loop. Snowshoers can explore the Ancient Forest/Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park to see giant western red cedar trees and anglers can ice fish on Borrow Pits, Andy Bailey Lake as well as many others. This wilderness blanketed in white is a whole new adventure. Snowmobilers rejoice for the ample opportunities to get after deep powder in Mackenzie on Morfee Mountain and throughout the Pine Pass area. And if downhill skiing is your thing, Powder King Mountain Resort—with its annual average snowfall of 12 metres (41 feet)—is sure to put a smile on any powder chaser’s face.

Soak in Liard River Hot Springs surrounded by snow-covered landscape. Check the provincial park website for current covid-19 hours of operation and safety protocols.
