no love for powder king?

i dont see any talk about it here, its apparently got the most snow of any resort in canada(41-53 feet annually). I havnt ridden there since i was 12 or 13 (26now) but will be heading out there next weekend. anyone else ride there? doesnt seem to be many from northern alberta and bc here though. anyways from what i remember the lower half is quite mellow but the top is all open tree runs with two open bowls in hiking distance. the big thing around this area is sleds though and everything here is accessable by sled.

Only reason is that it is probably the least accessible mountain in BC/Alberta. Also there is nothing to do on the actual mountain, so it probably doesn't attract the family types. Also kinda small. I'd LOVE to check it out but the 11 hour drive north is rather unappealing. Mackenzie is probably the deadest town in BC and it is like 160 k from Prince George.

Yeah for the majority of people you would have to drive past a heap of good resorts or be very lost!

So many runs so little time.
