Sasquatch Mountain Resort

Ski resorts in Canada
Some of the best skiing and snowboarding in British Columbia will be near Vancouver, and the Sasquatch Mountain Resort highlights this. Opened in 1969 as Hemlock Valley Resort, the winter venue has grown over the years, with plans for further expansion. It offers a family-fun vibe with plenty of chances for carving tracks after a storm (the 2020/2021 ski season boasted of totals that reached 535 inches).

While the Trans-Canadian Highway 1 will be useful for those driving east from Vancouver, a better option will be Highway 7 north of the Fraser River. Americans can drive I-5 into the Province or use Washington State Highway 9. The Vancouver International Airport handles flights in this area, with several ground services available to reach the resort 95 miles to the east.

No Science Fiction Here

Moviegoers might be familiar with SyFy's Sasquatch Mountain film, but visitors can attest that the Sasquatch Mountain Resort is more than a legend. Opinions often start with amenities, including lodging a winter venue offers. On-site accommodations include 16 cabins at Hemlock Hollow and the Snowflake Resort Chalets (including pet-friendly units). The Sandpiper Resort is just down the road as well. Drinks and food are available at four locations at the venue that offer a cafeteria, grab-and-go, drinks, and sit-down dining.

The Sasquatch Mountain Resort sells tickets for the day and evening access to the slopes here, with online pre-purchases advised to guarantee entry onto the mountain. It is an important consideration since the venue has a 3,000 guest capacity at any time. Guests at the ski area will find rentals, repairs, and retail that get them moving uphill quickly. That includes repairs or tune-ups on personal equipment and rentals for daily or seasonal use. The Sasquatch Mountain Resort Snowschool offers lessons in one-on-one or small group settings, with multi-week classes also available for locals who visit often.

From Bigfoot to Small Feet

The Sasquatch Mountain Resort receives varying snowfall each year, averaging between 360 inches and 420 inches. Visitors who like winter fun off the slope can try cross-country or snowshoe on one of the three trails here. The terrain varies from casual for anyone new to these activities to hard workouts up steeper surfaces. Family members of all ages will enjoy the eight lift-served snow tubing lanes at the Tube Park.

Skiers and riders might also want to work their freestyle skills at the terrain park with features varying in size and difficulty. That includes large jump lanes to help carve skiers and riders to grab some airtime at the Sasquatch Mountain Resort.

A base elevation of 3,182 feet and a summit of 4,374 feet builds the 1,192-foot vertical that everyone enjoys working down. Sasquatch Mountain Resort has 205 skiable acres covered by 36 runs. The resort has 30-percent green-rated runs for beginners, 40-percent blue-rated alpine trails for intermediates, and the remaining 30-percent of the slopes rate as black diamond for advanced exploration.

Visitors will find the longest run reaching 6,801 feet and five lifts moving Sasquatch Mountain Resort guests around. That includes the surface lifts at the Tubing park and the beginning area.
