Throughout September, we asked you to post your ski-trip dreams in our #BCdreamcatcher sweepstakes for a chance to win one of three British Columbia ski vacations. We received thousands of incredible ski-trip dreams (which you can see here and below), and three lucky skiers/snowboarders were randomly drawn to turn those dreams into a reality.
We’d like to thank our prizing sponsors as well as all the participants who inspired us with their ski-trip dreams!
The #BCDreamcatcher winners are:
Whistler Winner: Joseph Wendling
Joseph’s ski-trip dream: “My British Columbia ski dream is to ski at Whistler on a perfect bluebird day. The scenery, the weather, and of course the world-class experience at Whistler wouldn’t just be a dream. It would be surreal.”
Whistler prize package:
- five nights’ lodging at Fairmont Chateau Whistler
- four days of skiing for two people at Whistler Blackcomb
- roundtrip transfers from Vancouver International Airport to Whistler provided by Whistler Connections
About Fairmont Chateau Whistler:
Nestled at the foot of Whistler Blackcomb, the 550-room Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the destination’s landmark hotel. The property is naturally spectacular, and its design combines classic mountain elegance with modern alpine amenities. The cherry on top is Fairmont’s impeccable service and attention to every luxurious detail. Make the Fairmont Chateau Whistler your base camp for adventure on your next Whistler ski trip.

Okanagan Winner: Tracy Schwab
Tracy’s ski-trip dream: Just to have an awesome time – learn how to ski again (it’s been years!) and spend some time with loved ones.
Tracy selected Sun Peaks as her Okanagan destination. She’ll receive:
Sun Peaks Resort prize package:
- five nights’ lodging at Sun Peaks Lodge
- four days of skiing for two people at Sun Peaks Resort
- roundtrip airport transfers from Kamloops Airport (YKA)
About Sun Peaks Lodge:
This family-operated hotel is located in the heart of the quaint village at Sun Peaks Resort and just steps away from the chairlift. Guests enjoy a “sense of place” with locally sourced decor, including made-in-Canada furniture. With only 44 guestrooms, this property feels intimate, warm and just like the inviting ski lodge you’ve dreamed about.
We love Okanagan ski resorts! Here are 7 reasons why you will, too.
Powder Highway Winner: Christine Carter
Christine’s ski-trip dream: I dream to ski BC! Just once in my lifetime!
Christine had a choice between several Powder Highway ski resorts and selected Revelstoke.

- four days of skiing for two people at Revelstoke
About Sutton Place Hotel:
A true ski-in, ski-out property, the Sutton Place Hotel offers luxury, condominium-style rooms spread across three buildings and serviced by a lovely, central lobby. It’s located in the base village, steps from the Revelation Gondola and just a few minutes from downtown Revelstoke. With three on-site restaurants—ROCKFORD wok|bar|grill, The Mackenzie Common Tavern, and La Baguette—there’s no reason to leave!
