Phoenix Mountain, British Columbia

Excellent Late Season Conditions

Phoenix Mountain is located 30 km west of Grand Forks. The Phoenix Interpretive Forest is a community hill run by the Phoenix Alpine Ski Society.

The hill has a vertical of 800 ft. and its nine runs range from beginner to some expert. A T-bar services the main hill and a rope tow the beginner slope.

Most years the snow is plentiful and the north facing slopes provide excellent late season conditions. The average winter temperature is -5 C (23 F). Night skiing is available to the top of the mountain.

Facilities include a day lodge, cafeteria and lounge, ski rental and a C.S.I.A. ski school.

Above the downhill ski area, at Marshall Lake, there is an extensive network of cross-country trails geared for all levels of competence.
