Skiing in Canada
A bucket-list destination for ski-lovers, Canada’s mountains are famous for their knee-deep powder, wide runs and, of course, the breath-taking scenery you will glide past along the way. It is easy to see why people return to Canada’s slopes time and time again – only problem is, once you’ve experienced the best, it might be hard to settle for anything less.
Skiing in Canada offers the best of North America and so much more – national park scenery, famous Canadian hospitality and all the amenities you could ever ask for. It is easy to see why Canada offers once in a lifetime ski holidays every time. No matter which of the world-class destinations you choose, you will be greeted by copious chalky snow, spacious lodgings, centrally-located resorts and modern high-speed lift systems – everything you need for the perfect trip. The hotels and resorts are home to varied, high-quality restaurants and many après-ski activities to unwind with in the evening. Safety need never be a concern, as even in the steepest and most challenging areas, boundaries are patrolled and avalanche controlled.
Canada is perhaps most famous for the spectacular Rocky Mountain ranges that can be found in the heart of British Columbia, but these is not the only location in which you can hit the slopes. Heliskiing is a luxury excursion that is popular throughout the province. World-class resorts and conditions can also be found in both Alberta and Quebec. Skiing is actually popular in all of Canada’s provinces!
Whistler in particular is rated time and time again as being home to the best skiing in North America. This mountain resort village is home to over 200 trails spread between two iconic mountain peaks – the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains). If you would like to take a leisurely route between the two, enjoy a journey with a few onboard the renowned Peak2Peak gondola, making sure you stop to take in panoramic views of the surrounding areas at the top. If you are planning in staying in Banff or Lake Louise, your ski pass will allow you to take on the tracks on ‘The Big Three’ – Sunshine Village, Mount Norquay and, of course, Lake Louise itself.
It is clear that no matter what your taste, Canada is a premium destination for winter skiing – plus, in many cases, it can work out to be cheaper than many European ski resorts! Get in touch today to start planning your winter-ski adventure with our Canada Travel Specialists.
