Sasquatch Mountain Resort near Agassiz, BC, and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging, and webcams. Sasquatch Mountain Resort is a local family-friendly ski and snowboard resort that is tucked into the Douglas Mountain Range, which is part of the Coast Mountain Range of British Columbia, Canada. In the mid-1950’s, long before winter recreation was popular in the area, logging was the reason most people came to this scenic location. In the mid-sixties, a group looking to create a resort community saw that the area would be a perfect place for a ski facility. As a result of their vision, Hemlock Valley Recreation opened to the public on December 21, 1969, with a single rope-tow, several trails, and an old converted bus that acted as a day lodge. Sasquatch Mountain Resort is nestled in a horseshoe shaped valley with slopes on two mountain peaks. It has grown into a quaint resort community that features many different types of lodging including cabins, condos, homes and hotel rooms. The road to Sasquatch Mountain Resort can be a bit of a test with lots of switch-backs until you reach the entrance to the beautiful valley so take your time and enjoy the scenery. Sasquatch Mountain Resort has faced many challenges throughout its history. However, it has never lost the local, family-friendly experience that all members of the family will enjoy. Despite the remoteness of the ski resort, it attracts skiers and snowboarders from the local area of the Fraser Valley and even destination skiers and snowboarders from Vancouver and beyond. On a clear winter day, Sasquatch Mountain Resort provides some of the most spectacular scenery you will encounter anywhere. Particularly, the amazing sunsets just before the top-to-bottom Friday and Saturday night skiing begins on the trails near the Sasquatch Triple and the lower trails near the Whistlepunk Double. Sasquatch Mountain Resort provides a great place to spend quality, family-time with nature all around you. As time moves forward, change is always part of life and Hemlock Ski Resort is no different. On Mar 1, 2017 Hemlock Ski Resort as it has been known for decades changed its name to Sasquatch Mountain Resort and begins a new era of resort experiences.

Off the Slopes
