It’s home to some of the most sought-after powder on the planet. And a mighty river runs through it.
The Columbia, fed by thousands of high peaks in south-central British Columbia, lights the homes of millions with its massive hydroelectric dams.
But even though the waterway has seen over a century of development, it still retains a certain majesty, one best reflected by the people raised along its banks.
