Most popular ski resorts in Canada

In terms of the most popular resorts, Whistler in British Columbia reigns supreme– it’s in a league of its own, not only when it comes to North America (it’s the biggest ski area in the continent) but the rest of the world. Whistler was a well-established legend before it held the 2010 Olympics, but this definitely opened the eyes of those who hadn’t yet caught the fever – it gets well over 2 million visits a year.

Fernie is another major BC resort that’s regularly rated amongst the favourites – it won “Best North American Resort” in the 2012 World Snow Awards and we love the cool, ski town vibe, fun-loving locals and incredible powder. Large doses of sunshine, lovely light powder and a laid back atmosphere make Kimberley another highly visited resort and promising intimate, value-for-money holidays with massive verticals and long, uncrowded cruisers, Panorama is close in the running.

Alberta is home to another of Canada’s biggest attractions; world-renowned Banff sits within a jaw dropping UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s not just the unforgettable scenery that makes this such a popular place to ski - the cosmopolitan town centre and varied terrain over 3 ski areas are massive draws too. Sharing Banff’s lift pass and breathtaking surroundings is Lake Louise. You’d struggle to find a setting more gorgeous for a ski holiday and the superbly thought out ski area, meaning all abilities can ski from the same lift stations, is a magnet for groups and families. Also in Alberta you’ll find legendary Jasper – one of few resorts you can get to by train, it oozes mountain charm and a laid back atmosphere, surrounded by the fantastic landscape of its national park.

Over in Eastern Canada is Quebec, where the biggest and busiest ski destination is Mont Tremblant. It’s especially favoured by Europeans: it’s easier to get to than the West Canada resorts if you’re flying across the pond and the European-styled town with its patisseries and boutiques feels like a home-from-home.
