Canada is undoubtedly one of the world’s top ski holiday destinations. The excellent snow conditions, spacious pistes, perfectly groomed runs and superb powder are just a few of the many attractions that can be found skiing in Canada.  Add to this unbeatable hospitality and service and you have the recipe for an outstanding, unforgettable ski holiday.

Escape the world as you know it, Canada is calling. Crouched in the soaring peaks of the Coast and Rocky Mountains, Canada’s ski resorts cover the gamut from the enormous expanses of Whistler Blackcomb to the quaint resort towns of Silver Star and Revelstoke.

Western Canada is the Mecca for most snow sports addicts. The closest resort  is just two hours form the major international airport of Vancouver. Vancouver now offers non stop flights to Sydney. People who have lived there for years still say they haven’t skied everything these mountains have to offer.

In addition to fantastic scenery, Canada’s people will make you feel most welcome; Canadians are exceptionally friendly and are often compared to Aussies for their laid back approach and laconic sense of humour.

The options are endless when it comes to winter holidays in Canada. Even if you are a non ski or snowboarder there is plenty of activities to keep you busy. Most resorts offer activities such as; snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice skating just to name a few. These activities help to create the full authentic Canadian experience.
