Vacay.ca is excited to partner with SnowSeekers through January 2018 to bring you stories and inspiration about booking a snow-filled adventure you won’t soon forget. In previous installments, SnowSeekers wrote about planning a fun family ski holiday at SilverStar resort and the best apres ski fun along the Powder Highway. In this story we’re in Spring Break mode offering up the best events at five BC ski resorts.
During this year’s long, grey Ontario winter, trade in that tedious commute through endless ice and snow for a scenic and adventure-filled trip to Canada’s westernmost province.
Put all that time spent learning to trudge through thick, heavy snow to good use by strapping on a pair of skis or a board and shredding some powder in the mountains of British Columbia this Spring Break.
By the time the school breaks roll around, you’ll be more than ready for B.C.’s mildest average winter temperatures because of its proximity to both the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains.

But there’s more happening at B.C. ski resorts than the awesome powdery turns. Each of the resorts have their own entertainment with a calendar of winter events that just happen to coincide with Ontario’s Spring Break season, from “beach” and retro parties to watching the most dare-devilish of skiers and riders vie for prizes.
Slope-side celebrations include local wine, beer and appetizer tastings and a razzle dazzle night show at Whistler. In B.C.’s interior at SilverStar, the whole family can ski, snowshoe or cross-country ski under the stars.
Meanwhile, along the Powder Highway, the party ramps up at Fernie in March with several events such as the Kokanee Retro Party. Don’t forget to pack your flashiest ’70s and ’80s spandex for the festivities. Also happening in this cool mountain town in late February, is the Fernie Mountain Film Festival, a celebration of the region’s character- and adventure-filled culture. Other events during the festival include a photography contest, guest speakers and beer tastings from local craft breweries.
Over at Kicking Horse, you’ll learn what a Superberm race is and get to wear your gaudiest ’80s gear if you choose.
This will be a Spring Break you will never forget, and you might just leave with stories to tell and a goggle-tan that will be the envy of all your friends.
