While you can’t go wrong with any ski and snowboard resort in Canada, there are a handful that top the charts thanks to their incredible powder, modern amenities, and off-slope activities. But, knowing where to travel on your ski trip to Canada isn’t easy.
So, we’ve done the hard work for you. Whether you’re venturing to British Columbia or east to Ontario, these are where you need to ski and snowboard on your ski trip to Canada.
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. It also boasts an extended season from November to May in which the area averages almost 40 feet of snow. The nearby village offers pedestrian-only streets lined with restaurants, shops, bars, and more, to round out your ski trip to Canada.
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.
Located inside the borders of Banff National Park, Sunshine Village features some incredible ski slopes along the Canadian Rockies. While the resort tends to be crowded, a visit to Sunshine Village will certainly have you taking another ski trip to Canada. The resort also offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations and modern amenities like a heated gondola.
Big White is widely known as the top family-friendly ski trip resort in Canada. While the slopes offer several challenges for more advanced skiers, plenty of powder-filled off-piste terrain is available for beginners. Of the 2,700 skiable acres at Big White, 39 remain lit when the sun sets for an evening full of night skiing.
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.
