That's a Wrap!

Thanks to everyone who made this season so much fun. Schnai Dai was full of laughter and sunshine.

The first annual King of the Mountain was a great success with 10 year old Nora beating out the competition of all ages.

Skiers and boards were in knots with the giant twister game and the competition was stiff in the Canadian Trivia showdown.

The Slush Cup was well attended with spectators and participants alike with some successful crossings and some epic splashes. The costumes and enthusiasm were fantastic!

The costume cat-walk had people dancing on the tables and winners were decided by the crowd but everyone was a winner with the warm sun and great tunes by The Racket.

What a great end to the season. The mountain is now closed but the downtown office is open Monday-Friday, 9 am- 5 pm.

See you next year!

Prices Have Dropped on 2017-18 Season Passes!

This year Hudson Bay Mountain has dropped prices on our Legendary Local season passes. Last year an adult season pass was $719 during the LL sale; this year it is $689; and an adult family pass is $599! All other prices are also lower during this sale as well.

“We’ve dropped our prices to rock bottom so it is more affordable than ever,” said HBMR president Gary Mathiesen. “For the best value of all, if you get your season pass the day they go on sale you have almost two weeks during this season to use it, in addition to next year.”

That’s right! You get to ski the rest of this season for free! Legendary Local Season passes for the 2017/2018 season will be on sale March 27 to May 31.

For more info go to Season Passes »

With the sale of each LL season pass you can nominate the next HBMR Legendary Local.

“We are proud to support our community of Legendary Locals,” said Mathiesen. “Every year, we ask our community to nominate the Legendary Local of the year, and we are pleased to provide that individual with a free pass for that season. It is an important part of the tradition that makes Hudson Bay Mountain Resort a central part of the Bulkley Valley landscape.”

Mathiesen said a Legendary Local is defined as someone who loves to choose the Hudson Bay Mountain Resort in Smithers as their winter playground of choice. They know the mountain, their passion for fresh powder is palpable, and they are respected by our close-knit mountain community for their integrity and personal character.

“They represent the past, present and future of skiing and snowboarding on Hudson Bay Mountain,” he said.

As per the tradition, to nominate next year’s Legendary Local, the nominator must be a holder of a Legendary Local HBMR season pass for next year.

Passes will be sold at Guest Services on the mountain until closing day, April 9, and at the HBMR downtown office at 3866 Railway Avenue.

New Office Hours

The downtown office will be open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

As of April 10, season passes can only be purchased at the downtown office, 3866 Railway Ave.

The office will be closed on Tuesday, April 11. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Schnai Dai April 9 is Almost Here!

Hudson Bay Mountain is lining up a lot of fun during Schnai Dai Festivities on the last day of the season. The theme this year is ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ (think denim, plaid, and toques).

Along with the traditional favourites including the annual Slush Cup, Barbecue and live entertainment (this year with local band, The Racket) there are some additions to the line up.

New this year will be a King of the Mountain race where participants will be given a cup of water at the bottom of the Panorama T-bar. Through the ride to the top, and then the race to the bottom, the person with the most fluid still in their cup will be the winner.

Also new to Schnai Dai are Ultimate Snow Twister, Canadian Trivia and face painting courtesy of the Smithers Library. There will be a costume catwalk and prizes for best costume. The Local Supply Co will be hiding a banner somewhere on the mountain for the day, and the person who finds it will be the happy recipient of a brand new snowboard.

Day tickets are just $30 on Schnai Dai and rentals are just $30 as well!

Also The Backdoor closed – no food or ticket sales, bathrooms and vending machine only.
Last Chair is at 2pm on Sunday and the last T-Bar is at 4pm. There will be a late shuttle bus available down to town on Sunday at 9pm. The shuttle is free.

Tosh is Number 1 in the Hit & Run Race at Whistler

Tosh Krauskopf takes the First place spot at the Hit and Run event this past weekend in Whistler!

This unique snowboarding event is designed to test a snowboarder’s all-round riding skills. This course combines the turns and speed of a traditional; banked salon with the features of a slope-style event. A rider’s overall goal is to get down as fast as they can while dropping their best tricks. The better the trick, the more time deducted off their run. The person with the fastest overall score wins.

This event is Tosh’s favourite event and is thrilled to take the number 1 spot.

Congrats Tosh!
