SKI Prince George

POWERDER KING Dusted with 41 Feet of amazing Powder per Year, Powder King has built up a reputation as a world class hill and has an undeniable momentum. Nestled in the pristine wilderness of the Canadian Rockies, Powder King offers the best of the great outdoors, with an amazing annual snowfall of 41 feet, our terrain ranges from breath taking drops for the adventurous skier, to the gentle groomed slopes of beginner runs. A million miles from stress, but only 500 yards from the highway, Powder King is located in the center of the Pine Pass on Highway 97 in Northeast BC, 42 miles (67 km) west of Mackenzie and 123 miles (195 km) north of Prince George. A daily mountain express bus(the PK Express) will run from Prince George to Powder King every day the mountain is open. Leaving Pine Center Mall at 6:20am and The Hart Mall at 6:40am. The return trip leaves Powder King approximately half an hour after the lift closes. http://www.powderking.com/

TABOR MOUNTAIN SKI RESORT From skiing and snowboarding in the winter, to mountain biking and hiking in the summer, Tabor Mountain offers downhill skiing 15 minutes east of Prince George in Northern British Columbia. 13 runs ranging from Novice to Expert highlight this local favorite. Being situated so close to the city makes planning a trip to this hill’s breathtaking landscapes an accessible option for snowboarders and skiers looking for deep powder close to home. Throw in the possibility of a season that runs from November – April and you have a lot of possible run time on a great set of slopes. Tabor Mountain Ski Resort is located on the Yellowhead Highway, 12.5 miles (20 km) east of Prince George. http://www.tabormountain.com/

PURDEN SKI VILLAGE Purden Ski Village is the largest ski mountain in central British Columbia, and is without doubt among some of the best riding in the area. Boasting more than 1,100 vertical feet of quality dry powder, many treed runs and slopes that don’t get overrun with a ton of crowds, Purden Ski Village is a family friendly hill with levels ranging from Novice – to Intermediate – to Expert on runs that are as long as 2 miles of terrain. Purden Ski Village is located 38 miles (60 km) due east on the Yellowhead Highway, and 91 miles (145 km) northwest of McBride.The mountain is a 4-km drive north of the highway. http://www.purden.com/ski/wintersetup.htm

HART HIGHLAND SKI HILL Only small in size, this is a terrific hill for beginners, children, or anyone who just wants to get runs in inside city limits. Here is a hill that always opens right after first snowfall. Hart Highlands Ski Hill is equipped with 11 machine groomed runs and the non-profit society running it maintains it at a low cost for riders. Easy access on bus routes, rentals, ski school, T-bar and night. Don’t overlook this little treasure. You could be on the hill from downtown in ten minutes…. Phone: (250)962-8006

TROLL SKI RESORT With a focus on family fun, Troll Ski Resort has earned it’s nickname as the “gold nugget” of British Columbia ski resorts. With two terrain parks, runs for skiers of all abilities and four surface lifts, Troll Ski Resort is proud to offer something for every member of the family from the young beginner to the seasoned recreational adult skier. There are numerous intermediate runs, a fabulous beginner/teaching area and Black Diamond runs for the seasoned thrill-seeker.The groomed and powder runs at Troll Resort are covered with 100% pure and natural mountain snow.

MURRAY RIDGE SKI A beauty site for downhill skiers and snowboarders, Murray Ridge and is known for great powder rides and sweet sunny days . Murray Ridge Ski Hill is a great family oriented ski hill located 6miles (10 km) north of Fort St. James, and northwest of Prince George. From Prince George, drive west on Hwy 16 to Vanderhoof. Go through town continuing west until you reach the intersection of Hwy 27. Turn right and drive another 1/2 hour or so till Fort St James - the Murray Ridge Ski Area will be that big mountain behind town with all the runs - you really can’t miss it! http://murrayridge.com/ .

SHAMES MOUNTAIN SKI Situated in the Coastal Mountain range outside of Terrace, Shames Mountain is worth the trip. With 1600 feet of vertical powder, insane backcountry and seemingly untouched terrain, this mountain is a must for the adventurous skier or snowboarder. With the massive drops of powder and less line-ups, this mountain offers full access to crazy amounts of snow, tree skiing, steeps, big mountains or just powder. This mountain boasts the most accumulated snow of any ski hill in North America. Shames Mountain is located in the Shames Valley of Northwest BC, 22 miles (35 km) west of Terrace and 85 miles (137 km) east of Prince Rupert.

PeteSmalltown Pete. In this photo: SMALLTOWN DJS This is a photo from DJ Roberto Claudio's album Austin TakeoverCarrying on the momentum our city has seen with bigger club shows this year, we are proud to present another SCENE PG EXCLUSIVE featuring….. SMALLTOWN DJ’S & GRANDTHEFT!! This will undoubtedly be on e of the most epic events ever to sear a club dance floor in PG. Tickets are $20 and will be available at Ruins and Homework next week.

SMALLTOWN DJS: If your ears work, you can’t not have fun at a Smalltown DJs gig. That’s a scientific fact. Look it up.The Canadian duo’s uncanny ability to make crowds feel like schoolkids at recess stems naturally from their focus on maximizing fun for themselves. This fun maximization philosophy is the unifying force be-hind the Smalltown’s genre-warping club sets, which tend to cover vast musical territory but never veer from the good times vibe. In their focus on music as a means of letting loose and having fun, Smalltown DJs are like the KISS of dance music. Actually, KISS are too theatrical. They’re more like AC/DC. Meets Raffi. At a water-slide park. With a lot (a LOT) of beer.

GRANDTHEFT: Grandtheft is a Producer/Songwriter/DJ currently based in Toronto, Canada. He is also known as one half of the Team Canada DJs duo, founder of The Eh! Team and founder of one of Montreal’s favourite dance clubs Blue Dog. Establishing a eclectic, custom club sound by playing largely his own originals, remixes and video edits, Grandtheft has slayed clubs worldwide and is respected as one of the best live DJs Canada has to offer. His music has garnered heavy support from the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, A-Trak, Nadastrom, Jazzy Jeff, DJ AM, Digitalism and Craze which has also led to some big spins on BBC Radio 1. Touring 150+ dates per year, his remixes and live sets have led to being booked to support acts from U2 to Arcade Fire to Avicii, and being hand-picked by celebs such as Seth Rogan and Paris Hilton to supply the soundtrack for their events. New Years 2012, Grandtheft performed live-to-air on national TV as the sole DJ for the MuchMusic throwback Electric Circus celebration. Coming up under the late DJ AM’s wing, Team Canada’s reign included playing clubs across the US and performing at most major Canadian events nationwide, including Canada Day on Parliament HIll (crowd of 100 000+) and being selected as the Official DJs to The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver/Whistler. http://www.myspace.com/grandtheezy/music
