Canada: Skiing - Snow Boarding

Oh, its big all right. Damn big!

Canada Skiing - Snow Boarding

As one the northernmost countries, Canada is perfectly positioned for a skiing or snowboarding holiday. Not only does it have the mountains and the snow, but the top Canadian ski resorts are renowned for having fabulous facilities and accommodations to complement your ski-trip to Canada. Ski resorts in Canada stretch right across the country, with the best being in British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec.

There are too many to mention individually, but among the most popular is Mont-Tremblant in Quebec, which boasts East Canada's most magnificent peak. Then there is the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains in British Columbia, thought to be one of the best ski destinations in the world. They are joined at the base by a pedestrian village with all the amenities you'd expect from a town that draws 2 million visitors a year. For a breathtakingly vertical drop, visit the Kicking Horse Resort, based in the scenic setting of the Purcell Range of the Rocky Mountains.
