Purden Ski Village
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Lots of fresh snow and great spring break skiing. The best skiing around without the expense of driving down south.

Of the ski hills around Prince George Purden is by far the worst. At the ticket window you pay for a pass that priced in line with a hill twice the caliber of Purden and then to add insult to injury if you plan on buying a lunch you are taken for another ride as the prices in the restaurant are crazy as well. Also making matters worse Purden dosnt even except things like the fifth grade snowpass (the only hill in the area that dosnt take it) Most of the time you pay full price but only one of the 2 lifts run. I could go on but the bottom line is that Purden is terrible.

45 minutes from Prince George, Purden is a hidden jem with 2 chair lifts and a t-bar for the kids. Plenty of hill and powder for everyone. Always a great day at Purden.

a great place to ski. the lifts are fairly fast and view is amazing. It is a little pricey but very good ski conditions usually. The staff is friendly and helpful as welll.

Have skied here numerous times in recent years and nothing really changes. Grooming is poor and value for dollar is about the same. Over priced for what is offered and frankly, it's annoying when this hill has two chairlifts but only one is operational at the beginning of each day. Tabor is smaller but offers better rates, grooming and closer to Prince George.

Better yet, save your money and head to Jasper instead. Purden has a loyal following from the locals who own cabins on the hill but for everyone else, there are other great options within 4 hrs of PG.
