One of the major benefits to living in Cascadia is the ability to go skiing on the way to, or from, almost anywhere; the challenge can be in deciding exactly where the pow-venture will begin. On any drive from the interior to the coast, Coquihalla summit is an obvious choice with a selection of peaks ranging from mellow north-facing glades to near-vertical slabs of granite. The scenery is spectacular and the access is immediately off the highway… basically a recipe for success.
