Destination Basics

Terrace's unique geography helps give it a climate that is milder than other cities in Northern British Columbia. The First Nations' name for the area, Ganeeks Laxha, means "stairway to heaven" and comes from the tiered mountain steppes and mist-covered Skeena River.

Being close to the Pacific coast gives the area a moderate winter compared to other northern-inland communities and less rain than areas on the lower mainland like Vancouver. Summers are fairly brief but warm. Winters can be chilly but skiers will be happy with the snowfall levels.
