Canada ski holidays
The best Canadian Ski Resorts
The Rocky Mountains are the first place you might think of when you’re booking a ski holiday in Canada, and the resorts in the Rockies are famous for their picture perfect winter holiday conditions. Snow is virtually guaranteed at any of the major ski resorts of Banff and Whistler, so you can take your pick from the sophisticated ski resorts on offer and then relax après ski in a luxury hotel with all the glamour and style you would expect.
Explore the National Park and beautiful Banff
Banff is home to some of the most upmarket ski resorts and luxurious five star hotels in Canada, and the town, although small, even has its very own national park. You can mix it up a bit and take the shuttle bus between the three top class ski areas at Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village, and Lake Louise, and even even chill out with some ice skating if you tire of skiing. The town of Banff is charming and the ideal place to relax after a day on the piste, with some top class bars and restaurants – the Alberta steak is worth a try if you’re a carnivore, too.
Ski to your heart’s content in wonderful Whistler
Whistler hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in 2010 and the resulting TV coverage showcased the beauty of this gorgeous Canadian resort to the whole world, making it more popular than ever. The jagged peaks, forests and glaciers all add to the beauty of Whistler, and make it an ideal place for a ski break in Canada. There’s also a lively après ski scene on hand for the evenings, with a European feel that you might not find at some other North American ski resort towns.
Canadian ski holidays
It’s easy to see why Canada is such a massive draw to winter sports aficionados; the snow is plentiful, the hotels are luxurious and the welcome is warm even if the weather isn’t. If safety is an issue for you, Canada wins hands down too, as unlike the ski resorts in Europe, all Canadian ski resorts have to have a boundary which is marked out by signs or a rope, and within this boundary, all areas are avalanche controlled and patrolled.
