Where to Go Skiing in Canada?
Whether you decide to head to the skiing regions of the east or the west, Canada is home to some
of the most incredible skiing destinations in the world.
British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec are considered the top three snow and skiing states and it’s
in these provinces that you’ll find the most famous skiing and snow sporting hotspots:
- As the cream of the crop,British Columbia has more ski resorts than any other
Canadian state. Whistler/Blackcomb is often labelled as the most sought-after skiing
destination in the whole of North America (it’s where the 2010 Winter Olympics were held). Other leading
ski resorts include Sun Peaks, Big White, Revelstoke, Kicking Horse, White Water, Silver Star,
Red Mountain, Fernie Alpine and Grouse Mountain.
- In the western state of Alberta (next to British Columbia), the Banff National Park
in the breathtaking Rocky Mountains is definitely a first choice for many seasoned skiers, with 8,000 acres
of skiing glory to enjoy. The three main resorts here are Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mt
Norquay. Tri-area lift passes are available and allow you to ski almost any slope you like,
regardless of where you are staying.
- If you choose to head to towards the east, Quebec will be your ultimate skiing and
snow playground. Although the mountains and slopes aren’t as big here as in use full name and Alberta,
skiing in Quebec is a fantastic choice if you’re more of a novice skier or if you want to be close to
cities like Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto. US destinations like New York and Boston are also just
an arm’s reach away. Mont Tremblant is one of the most popular ski resorts in Quebec,
and others, like Stoneham Mountain, Mont Sainte Anne and Le Massif
in the rockies, are well worth looking into as well.
