Powder King is a ski resort in the Pine Pass, which traverses the Hart Ranges of the Northern Rockies in northern British Columbia, Canada along Highway 97. It lies just outside Pine Le Moray Provincial Park.
The resort consists of a triple chair that runs from the base to halfway up the mountain and a T-bar that carries skiers from there to the top of the runs. Anyone wishing to reach the peak has to hike from the top of the T-bar. There is a lodge with rental facilities, a cafeteria and restaurant as well as 60 room hostel for overnight stays.
The Powder King Express bus offers round trip service between Pine Center Mall and The Hart Mall in Prince George to the resort and back each day the mountain is in operation, which is usually Thursday to Sunday each week from November until April.
Most of the runs are named after the Beatles because of Powder King's opening in the 1960s.
The resort lies within the Pacific Time Zone and observes daylight savings. This means in the winter the time zone is UTC-8 and in the summer it is UTC-7. For practical purposes, if traveling to the resort from the west you do not have to change your clock throughout the year. If traveling to the resort from the east in winter (Chetwynd), you must turn your clock back an hour; in summer there is no time change.
