Ski Resorts in Canada

If you’re planning to cross the Atlantic for your ski adventure then you’d do well to consider the first class skiing that is to be found on Canadian soil.

Some of the best ski conditions in North America can be found once you cross over the border, with the country providing stunning scenery, excellent level of snowfall and the chance to enjoy both away from the bustling crowds you may have encountered during a European trip.

It might cost you a little more to head over to Canada compared to your normal trip to the Alps, but it’s money you’ll be investing in a first class ski adventure that will live long in the memory.

Expect to be welcomed with open arms no matter whether you are an expert skier with years of experience or a complete novice who is hitting the slopes for the first time; there’s plenty to offer for both.

As with the USA, Canada is best suited for those who want to enjoy a longer period of time on the piste – or who want to mix a skiing holiday into a longer multi-centre trip.

Ski areas in Canada

The best skiing in Canada tends to be spread across three states, with the most famous resorts being located in Quebec, British Colombia and Alberta. Within BC, the ‘go to’ place is the popular resort of Whistler, where ski fans from all over the world have flocked for more than 50 years.

Rugged mountains provide a scenic backdrop as you look to explore thousands of acres of pistes, whilst neighbouring Alberta is just as picturesque; with Banff in the heart of the Rocky Mountains offering memorable skiing in three top resorts – Mount Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Village.

Not quite as far is Quebec on the east coast, with the likes of Mont-Tremblant and Le Charlevoix being easily accessible from the UK and offering a little taste of Europe.


Canada has some of the best skiing around, so it follows that you can also expect to enjoy some of the best après-ski when your day on the slopes comes to an end. That après-ski will differ from resort to resort, but you can expect to find plenty of bars and restaurants offering a wide range of entertainment no matter where you go. In Quebec in particular, you’ll want to make sure you sample some of the local cuisine when the chance arises.

Ski Accommodation

It doesn’t matter if you are travelling to Canada as part of a large group, as a family or even on your own, you’ll be able to find accommodation to suit your needs. The options are wide and varied depending on where you decide to go, ranging from small B&Bs and hotels to more impressive chalets where you are free to do your own thing.

Lift Passes

Book lift passes in advance for your trip to Canada and then as soon as you arrive, you’ll be able to get down to business and hit the slopes to let the fun begin.
