Canada offers the skier and snowboarder an amazing choice of ski areas and ski resorts. All offer very different terrain and also atmosphere. For example, some of the larger ski areas can offer more glitz and glamour whilst some of the smaller ski areas are more rustic and homely. What they all have in common though is the famous Canadian powder.
Large ski linked areas offer the skier an amazing amount of choice. If you are heading to Canada then chances are you are going for two weeks or longer. If you get a ski area lift pass then you can literally ski a different area/slope each day, you will never get bored. That said Whistler alone offers you 8000 acres of terrain!
Smaller resorts that are not linked to others also have their charms. If you are on a short holiday or are skiing with young children or you simply aren't going to be skiing all day, a ski area lift pass could be a complete waste of money.
How to Choose a Ski Area
The best starting place is to decide exactly what you want from a ski holiday. If you are planning to visit Canada first think about whether you want east or west coast. East is more accessible but the west coast has better snow. Think about the variety of slopes that you need v staying in one resort.

But whatever you choose in Canada, from mighty Whistler to the smaller resorts of Tremblant, you can be guaranteed the most amazing skiing.
