So what's it like?
There are plenty of reasons why Canada should be on your shortlist for a ski holiday. For many it's a once in a lifetime destination - however once you've been you won't want to settle for anything less.
Overall Canada is a pretty unique place to ski, famed for knee-deep powder, uncrowded and immaculately groomed pistes, and wide, tree-lined runs. Also the scenery and incredible snowfalls are two of the best reasons to head over the pond. Some might use phrases like jaw-dropping and stunning and it's hard to disagree. Plus it is rare to find long lift queues - even at the busiest times of the ski season.
One thing that really sets Canada apart from other countries is the high level of service and friendliness you'll get. Expect a warm welcome at every hotel, bar and restaurant you visit. Even the lifties all seem to have big perma-smiles on their faces - perhaps it's because they are working in one of the coolest jobs ever.
Food is a big factor for many on deciding where to go skiing, so again Canada ticks all the boxes. You'll be familiar with many of the dishes on menus already, so you won't be guessing what to have for dinner - however Canada is a melting-pot of culinary influences from the world over. Whether you prefer a great big steak, delicate fine dining, pizza, stir-fry or poutine (Canada's favourite snack) you won't be disappointed.
