Posted - Mon, 08/30/2010 - 10:59
The blue-skied powder day is something every skier or snowboarder dreams about. While these are great days at your local hill, they are incomparable days in the backcountry of Fernie, British Columbia. This small mountain town is one of the premier destinations for catskiing in Canada, and indeed the world. In fact, British Columbia draws the vast majority of powder seekers looking to do a bit of catskiing each year from all over the world. Here in Fernie, the place to go for backcountry catskiing is Island Lake Catskiing. Their 7,000 acres of wide-open, unrestricted nature beats any resort hands down. Combine that terrain with a blue-skied powder day, and the pleasure is endless.
Island Lake was one of the first snow cat skiing operators in B.C. to own the land they operate on, after purchasing the land they had been leasing from the Shell Oil Company in 1994. Since then, they have continually improved their service and offerings, as a result, filling up their tours throughout the season with professional skiers and enthusiasts alike. By combining great terrain with luxurious accommodations, gourmet food, and an excellent spa, Island Lake offers spectacular vacations whether it’s sunny or not.
Speaking of sun, Island Lake keeps its lodge open during the summer months as well. This means you get to use their great lodge as your base for all kinds of great outdoor activities. Not only does Island Lake's tenure provide great hiking and biking opportunities, it also has great fishing, golf and whitewater rafting too. When the sun is shining, Fernie is the place to be, and whether you like your wilderness covered in powder or not, Island Lake gives you fun in the sun. To reserve a truly unforgettable experience, book soon, as their tours fill up fast. Helicopter skiing Canada
