So. Much. Snow.


We are Canada’s first non-profit community service ski co-operative!

Home to 1,600 vertical feet of powder, Shames Mountain is located 35 kms west of Terrace in the spectacular Shames Valley amidst the majestic Coast Mountain Range of British Columbia. 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 7,800 acres of backcountry bliss and the options are only limited by your imagination!


Snow school offers lessons throughout the day with qualified and cheerful staff, ready to give you your first lesson or help you work on improving skills.

School Programs

We believe that every student in Grades 4 – 12 should have the opportunity to experience winter in the Mountains.

Kid Camps

Throughout Christmas & Spring Break, we offer several 3 day camps for kids of all ages. Each camp is led by a certified instructor.

Snow Angels

Our goal is to provide free skiing and riding by offering lift, rentals and lessons to those who want to participate but are unable to afford it.
