A White Winter Wonderland
As August slowly marches on, the day that every skier and snowboarder awaits continues to draw closer. That exciting day when the snow has stacked up, there's a decent base and that first blue-sky powder day arrives. If you’re addicted to that delicate formation of frozen water we call champagne powder, nothing can soothe your thirst like a trip into the backcountry here in Fernie, British Columbia. The best way to get to Fernie's backcountry is in a snow cat. There is a reason why 95% of world's heliskiing and Catskiing Canada take place in B.C. every year. It's because year after year B.C. gets consistently deep, dry powder, making for day after day of first tracks and powder-in-your-face fun.
