Why Ski Canada?

Here are some of the highlights of skiing north of the border, that make a Canadian ski trip so unique...

Outstanding thru-season snow conditions, quiet, uncrowded slopes with minimal lines and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere are a much-appreciated given when visiting Canadian ski resorts. It is really not hard to see why skiers and boarders return year after year!

Convenient, purpose-built resort towns make life straight forward for visitors with all ameneties close by, and French-Canadian resorts such as Mt Tremblant provide cultural diversity for those keen to embrace cultures outside of their everyday experience. Be sure to check out the wide variety of apres ski venues in and around resort, with cafes, bars, bistros, live music, DJ's, sushi and late night food spots all on the menu. 

In Canada you can experience unparralleled National Park skiing in stunningly beautiful Banff National Park. See Canada from above with the thrill of a heli ski excursion, and go glacier skiing in Whistler at the Horstman Glacier (both for advanced and expert skiers and riders only). 

Intermediate and advanced skiers and riders should also take advantage of the complimentary Mountain Host Tours available daily in most Canadian ski resorts, and have your eyes opened to some of the best spots for you to enjoy in the current conditions.

Canadian ski holidays are also great for beginners, providing a safe haven for them to explore and experiment with their newfound technique. The primary language in Canada is English (also French in the eastern resorts), making ski school a great option for most nationailities to ensure maximum understanding between pupil and instructor. In Alberta, Ski Big 3 offer an excellent 3 day ski school package for skiers. Learn with the same certified ski instructor for 3 consecutive days and explore each of the local resorts of Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and Mt Norquay (Banff) using your Tri Area Lift Ticket

Skiing and boarding aside, your Canadian ski trip will not be complete without sampling some of the other activities Canada has to offer, such as snow mobiling, dog sledding, ice shoe walking and so much more! Ideal for the non-skiers / riders in your group, or for those days when you fancy some time away from mountain. 

With slopeside, in-resort and shuttle to lift accommodations there is something for everyone, whether you want to be on the slopes to get those fresh tracks in the morning, or away from the hustle and bustle. Choose from hotel rooms, condos or town homes, and add lift tickets, ski / board rentals and airport transfers to your package, as required.
