Canada’s Best Ski Destinations!
Winters in Canada are known for its cold, sub-zero weathers and snow days. Just because it is winter, however, is no reason to stay indoors and avoid the cold. Whether you enjoy skiing, snowboarding, or sipping on hot chocolate in a chalet, here are a few of the best ski resorts in Canada:
Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia: Whistler and Blackcomb mountains offer more than 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls and three glaciers over 3,200 hectares of beautiful terrain. There is also dog-sledding, a tube park, and very trendy shops and eateries to enjoy within the Whistler Village!
Banff/Lake Louise, Alberta: In the heart of the Rockies, skiing is offered in three main resorts: Mt. Norquay, Sunshine Village, and Lake Louise Mountain Resort. With Banff National Parks being a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is no surprise that it remains a popular tourist destination all year-round!
Mount Tremblant, Tremblant Quebec: This busy ski resort is nestled about 130 kms from Montreal. Some non-ski options include spa treatments, Scandinavian baths and tours of nearby Quebecois villages!
Blue Mountain Resort, Collingwood, Ontario: With 36 runs and 3 freestyle terrains, Blue Mountain is the third most popular ski resort in Canada (after Whistler Blackcomb and Mount Tremblant)!
So grab your warmest coats, and head to the nearest ski resort with friends and family. After all, there is something for everyone at most ski resorts, even for children and non-skiers!
