Went skiing at Keefer Lake http://www.keeferlake.com/ and rented the place out for the weekend for UBCO's outdoor club. Had about 30 odd people there doing various things from ice fishing to snowshoeing and about 15 of us went ski touring. The cabins have an amazing rustic feel and the lodge owners that live there are super friendly. Ended up being significantly cheaper for us then staying at the ACC cabins in Rogers Pass (and not having to deal with the regulations about large groups needing guides/the gladed terrain was a plus as well as we have a lot of beginners.)

The skiing was fantastic, with boot top ski pen and extremely cold temps with no wind. Unlike the popular areas in Rogers Pass there is a good chance you will not see a soul during your stay while skiing, and you can't hear the drum of the highway. Only downside to this area is the best skiing takes about 1.5 hours to skin to the bottom of but if your lazy there are plenty of other really nice glades that are closer.
