Ski Holidays in Canada
Canada is truly a great country to ski in. Here, you will find powder snow and lots of it, awesome scenery, uncrowded slopes, non existent lift queues and finally great Canadian hospitality. There are a huge range of resorts from world famous Whistler to the smaller, more locally visited, Red Mountain.
Why Ski in Canada?
Well one of the main reasons why people ski in Canada is the sheer quality of the snow and lots of it! Put it this way, resorts like Fernie and Whistler get three times more snow than the Alps. And it's amazing champagne powder snow, light, dry and floaty. Put into the mix uncrowded slopes where it isn't difficult to find fresh tracks, you can see the appeal.
Canada also doesn't tend to over prepare its slopes, so much of the terrain is appealingly difficult! Add to this great service, exciting off the slope activities and warm, friendly people that are a million miles away from some of the monosyllabic lift operators in Europe, and it is even more attractive!
