Canadian condo’s are some of the coolest ski apartments around – sometimes appearing as self-contained buildings, and other times as part of an apartment block or hotel. They tend to be roomier than the apartments you get in Europe, often with full sized kitchens and lounges where you can really make yourself at home. Whistler has some cracking apartments at the base of the Blackcomb Mountain where doorstep skiing makes life easy, or for a flat with a view, Banff’s properties look out over the spectacular National Park.
The first class ski apartments here are nearly all connected to big hotels, giving guests access to luxuries like spas and shuttle services. And the flexibility of self-catering gives you lots of opportunity to enjoy the good life, eating out in a different gourmet restaurant every evening, making the most of mobile massage services or hiring a private chef to do the hard work for you. A luxurious lifestyle is easy to come by in Canada’s finest ski resorts – Whistler wins the title of ‘world’s best ski resort’ more often than not, and the scenery in Lake Louise rivals anywhere else on earth. And at the end of the day, you have your own place to relax in – often complete with one of the ultimate ski holiday luxuries, a crackling log fire.
Choosing one of the year-round mountain towns over a specific ski station means you’ll be able to find bigger grocery stores, often with lower prices. Look out for big name stores like Safeway and Nesters as well as locally owned businesses like The Grocery Store and the Creekside Market in Whistler (last time we checked, the latter did a handy food delivery service). The good thing about Canadian ski apartments is that they tend to have more by way of kitchen and storage facilities, making life a lot easier when you’re cooking your own meals.
