Shames Mountain is located 35 km (22 Mi.) west of Terrace in the spectacular Skeena Valley. Shames is nestled in the majestic Coast Mountain Range of British Columbia. The community ski hill is locally owned and manages as a cooperative. It’s only open Friday to Sunday and on holidays.
Shames Mountain’s terrain leasehold is 7,800 acres, only 225 of which are patrolled-this means backcountry options are truly endless. Backcountry travel opens up a whole new world of adventure. There’s nothing like exploring seemingly endless terrain filled with an abundance of untracked powder, adventure and challenge.
Venturing into the backcountry can be a transformational experience and thousands of people are figuring that out. Backcountry snow travel has become exponentially popular over the last few years, especially as more ski areas open their boundaries to allow access to terrain that goes on as far as the adventurer is willing to travel.
