Skiing in Canada

Skiing in Canada is a national treasure, from the epic knee-deep powder runs in British Columbia to the stunning landscape of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. Canada has some of the biggest snowfalls of any destination and when you add the picture postcard scenery and wide immaculately-maintained pistes then you have the perfect place for snow bunnies around the world.

Banff
Banff.

Banff

Deep within the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest, and perhaps most impressive park. Banff itself is a fantastic resort which promises snow-sure conditions and spectacular scenery and is seen as the link of three big mountains - Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. The pistes or trails, as they are known in Canada, are perfect for beginners and intermediates, but the real challenges lie in wait for those more advanced. Snowboarders and veteran skiers will find some of the best off-piste riding in the world in Banff, such as the unbelievable Delirium Dive.
