Hudson Bay Mountain

British Columbia

Hudson Bay Mountain Resort, located on the traditional territory of the Wet’suwet’en in Northern BC, is renowned as North America's last authentic ski resort. Established in 1969, it offers a unique blend of big mountain experience and small-town charm. With a top elevation of 1,650 meters, 44 runs, and 700 acres of skiable terrain, the resort is celebrated for its incredible powder snow and family-friendly hospitality. A consistent annual snowfall of over 400 cm contributes to its reputation as a skiing secret, providing uncrowded access to a variety of runs. Rooted in Canadian history, the mountain was named after the iconic Hudson's Bay Company, and its ski culture dates back to the 1930s with Norwegian and Swedish settlers. The resort's expansion, marked by t-bars, a day lodge, and new runs, continued over the years. In 2015-2016, Gary Mathiesen became the sole owner, focusing on sustainability and value. The resort collaborates with local businesses and ski clubs, contributing to the community by offering terrain parks and ski cross courses for local athletes. The ongoing growth includes ski-in ski-out home ownership opportunities, new infrastructure, and continuous terrain improvements, making Hudson Bay Mountain a dynamic and evolving destination.
