Shames Mountain Ski Area
Shames Mountain ski and snowboard area in the Coastal Mountain range of British Columbia is one of North America's best kept secrets, known for its great views and more snow than any other lift-served ski area in North America!

Enjoy the massive amounts of snow without the lineups or crowds! Shames allows skiers and snowboarders easy access to an amazing backcountry environment If you like tree skiing, steeps, big mountains or just powder, Shames has it all!

The first year that Shames Mountain Ski Area was opened, it had to close. Seems they weren't expecting quite so much snow: the top of the ski lift got snowed under. Shames Mountain boasts the most accumulated snow of any ski hill in North America - but just try telling that to Mount Baker Ski Area in Washington state!

Shames Mountain is located in the Shames Valley of Northwest BC, 22 miles (35 km) west of Terrace and 85 miles (137 km) east of Prince Rupert. Shames lies 13 km off Highway 16, between Terrace and Prince Rupert.
