There are few places on the planet with miles and miles of open road, virgin forest and unexplored wilderness. British Columbia is one of those places. And luckily, at Alpine Meadows, we are situated at the gateway of the magical northern wilderness of BC.
Getting here is easy, and the road offers visitors an opportunity to get off the highway and take the local, scenic route. Head for the Little Fort Reaction Ferry that will take you across the North Thompson river, and enjoy the drive.
Clearwater is just at the edge of the famous Wells Gray Provincial Park, and this is the perfect location to launch your wilderness adventure.
