Luxury Ski Holidays Canada
With a longer ski season, snow-sure slopes and some of the best skiing in the world, it is no wonder that more winter sports enthusiasts flock to the ski resorts of Canada over its European counterparts. The largest and best-known ski resorts in Canada are located in British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec. For international visitors to Canada, the main draw is the scenic west. Here you will find the popular resorts of Whistler, Banff and Lake Louise. There are also many smaller local ski resorts that are worth considering, including Marmot Basin in the wildlife-rich Jasper national park, Kimberley Alpine Resort in the former mining town of Kimberley and Whitewater in the party and powder town of Nelson.
Canada is particularly popular for heli and cat-skiing and there are several luxury ski lodges in Canada with their own helipads offering epic powder adventures. Long known as a heli-ski base, Revelstoke is home to some of North America's biggest vertical drops with over 3,000 acres of terrain. Whistler is another resort with backcountry guiding, cat-skiing and heli-skiing available by the day and its mountain bowls are enough to keep experts happy for weeks.
Aside from skiing, there is plenty to explore away from the slopes, from ice canyon walks and other outdoor activities such as snowmobiling and dog sledding, to soaking in spas and hot springs, sampling the local Canadian cuisine and wildlife spotting in Canada's great National Parks. For an exhilarating luxury ski holiday filled with activity, adventure and breathtaking scenery, Canada should be top of your list.
