The landscape in British Columbia Canada is like an extension from Alaska in the north and Washington State in the south. British Columbia may have some of the best opportunities for just about any outdoor activity I can think of. I primary hike, fly fish, and ski, but the abundance of water, islands, and mountainous regions make it ideal for boating, kayaking, climbing and anything else you can think of. I only traveled to a handful of locations with British Columbia and look forward to spending more time up there in the near future. If you can only pick one spot the Whistler/Blackcomb region is roughly 4.5 hours outside of Seattle and is a great launching point in both the winter and summer months for anything your heart desires.
