Are you ready for Shames Mountain?
Home to 1600 vertical feet of powder, Shames Mountain is located 35 km west of Terrace in the spectacular Shames Valley amidst the majestic Coast Mountain Range.
As once described in Powder Magazine, “Shames receives 475 inches of annual snowfall, laying claim to one of the deepest, most consistent snow packs in North America and its backcountry access is unrivaled.”
Established in the early 1990s, Shames Mountain has 28 cut runs and an abundance of natural glades. Shames is a family-friendly mountain with lots of great options from beginner to expert. Shames is surrounded by more than 7800 acres of backcountry bliss. There is a terrain park, a kid's toboggan hill, a day lodge with food and bar service, ski and board instruction, and great events throughout the season.
Shames is owned and operated by My Mountain Co-op (MMC), Canada’s first non-profit ski community cooperative.
