What Is The Atmosphere Like Here?

Canada offers picturesque ski resorts, with state of the art modern facilities and great service. In fact its the friendliness of people within the resorts that really sets it apart.

How Many Resorts Are There?

You can book skiing holidays in Canada on both the West and East Coast. British Columbia and Alberta are on the west coast and Quebec is the main area on the east coast.The East tends to be a little more wind-blown and not quite as good quality snow (relatively speaking) as the West Coast. Every province in Canada has a few ski resorts but British Columbia has the most, with 55 ski resorts.

Who Is It Best For?

Canada offers very diverse ski resorts and their size will often ensure that they are great for all levels. There's excellent facilities at all ski resorts with most having gentle slopes and tuition for beginners, with more extreme terrain for advanced skiers. Canada is also known as the back country capital of the world, which makes it the ideal destination for anyone wanting to explore the unspoilt wilderness. Also, the snowparks tend to be far superior to anything you will get in Europe.

What's It Like To Stay Here?

Ski Canada and the accommodation is spacious and maintained to a high standard. You can choose to stay in hotels, self-catering apartments or backcountry lodges. There's a great choice of food in resort which is plentiful and reasonably priced with the East Coast having a French influence.
