Most Popular Ski & Snowboard Resorts in Canada

Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb is highly regarded as the No. 1 ski destination in all of Canada. It’s the largest ski resort in the continent with 200 runs over some 8,000 acres.

The nearby village offers pedestrian-only streets lined with restaurants, shops, bars, and more, to round out your ski trip to Canada.

Lake Louise Ski Resort

The snow at Lake Louise is outmatched only by the stunning alpine views of Canada. With 4,200 acres of groomed ski runs, chutes, and alpine bowls, Lake Louise is the ideal match for beginning skiers and experts on their ski trip to Canada. The resort is conveniently located near the town of Banff, too, for added fun off the slopes.

Sunshine Village

Sunshine Village

Located inside the borders of Banff National Park, Sunshine Village features some incredible ski slopes along the Canadian Rockies.

The resort also offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations and modern amenities like a heated gondola.

Big White Ski Resort

Big White Ski Resort

Big White is widely known as the top family-friendly ski trip resort in Canada.

Of the 2,700 skiable acres at Big White, 39 remain lit when the sun sets for an evening full of night skiing.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Revelstoke Mountain Resort

While your ski trip to Revelstoke will offer plenty of fun off the mountain, all eyes are always on the slopes. The resort boasts the highest vertical drop in Canada and North America. The resort also features a number of groomed ski trails, tree runs, powder bowls, and more. While the resort may not offer as many amenities as other Canadian resorts, it’s undoubtedly the top spot for a ski trip dedicated entirely to skiing and snowboarding.
