Not sure which country’s slopes you want to tackle this year? How about Canada? Its slopes offer some fantastic skiing opportunities, and there are plenty of resorts that can rival the famous ones in the Alps! And, at least when you go to Canada you won’t have to worry about taking a French or German phrasebook with you in your luggage!
So, which of Canada’s ski resorts are worth traveling to? Here are some of our favorites.
Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia
Canadian Ski Courses are known for being some of the most effective in the world. Even if you have no experience of being out on the slopes, the instructors will have you whizzing down the mountains in no time! Whistler Blackcomb is one of the best resorts for beginner skiers as there are many different courses, all of which are perfect for different abilities. The Blackcomb resort is one of Canada’s biggest, so it offers plenty of amenities and activities that you can use and take part in after a busy day on the piste. It’s close to a couple of lakes as well, so there are plenty of lakeside hikes.
Sunshine Village Near Banff, Alberta
Even though Sunshine Village, just a 15-minute drive from the town of Banff, has a few beginner slopes, it is actually better suited for intermediate and advanced skiers. It’s not only renowned amongst skiers, though, as it has built up a credible reputation with many snowboarders as well. There is also the famous Delirium Drive, an off-piste course that is regularly voted one of the best in the world. You can choose to stay in Sunshine Village or nearby Banff. Don’t worry about transport, as there is a direct bus link between the two!
Panorama Mountain Village, British Columbia
With an enviable location right in the middle of the Rockies, the Panorama Mountain Village is a great all-rounder resort for skiers of all abilities. There is a popular ski school where beginners can learn the basics, and the advanced ski areas include the Extreme Dream Zone and Taynton Bowl. When it’s time to leave the slopes, there are plenty of apres ski activities aimed at the kids, such as movie nights and bingo. The adults can lounge around in hot tubs and take advantage of the hot pools right next to the slopes! Plus, you’ll find plenty of restaurants and bars serving up some delicious North American cuisine!
These are just three of Canada’s ski resorts, but you’ll find a whole lot more if you search online. But we think that these are the ones really worth checking out as they are certainly three of the country’s coolest!
