Ski holiday Canada

Come and experience Canada with us

Canada will blow your mind!

From the well-known alps to all the way across the Atlantic, people are skiing and snowboarding, but in Canada, there are the most spirited and passionate winter lovers we know.

What is typical for Canadian resorts is the widespread ski in/ski out, this means that the terrain is easily accessible for skiers to have a break at home for some hot chocolate at cold winter days, and then go back to the piste to ski or snowboard some more.

Canada offers both paradises for experts and ideal areas for beginners. Whether you are looking for vertical meters in Revelstoke or good children’s education in Big White, Canada can satisfy all the needs for a group of friends or the entire family as an off-piste ski holiday or ski/spa events. However, the steepness of the slope is different than you might know it from the Alps. In Canada, they are graded from green to black. That is, green for beginners, blue for easy-to-do and black for experts. For the right daredevils, the black pistes also exist as “double diamonds”. So there is no red grading! Canadian resorts are coherent and most often the slopes will return to the city, creating a flexible and dynamic ski day.

In Canada, unlike European resorts, everything within the marked ski area is patrolled by ski patrol. This includes tree runs between the slopes, steep couloirs, and bowls. All this make off-piste skiing much safer. So, if you want a ski and snowboard holiday that can challenge you in every way, Canada is ready to welcome you!

"I have looked into the possibilities myself, but nothing could match the trip I got through Snowminds! This trip gave me so much I never have dreamed off was possible in the off-piste"

The big attraction and some of what makes Canada so unique is the possibility of heli-skiing. Here you are transported – in the helicopter to the areas which cannot be accessed by chairlifts. Along with a guide, you move through the landscape on skis or snowboard, to be picked up by the helicopter and fly to the top again, and so it continues for a couple of trips.

 

For the adrenaline seekers, there is also rental of snowmobiles at most Canadian resorts. These take you out into the terrain that cannot be reached on skis. If you are in for a quieter day, there are also rental of snowshoes or skates. Ice hockey is after all Canada’s national sport, and you cannot have been on a ski trip to Canada without having played a game or two on the local icing.

 

In Canada, apres ski is not just about dancing on the tables in heavy ski boots. It is much more normal to enjoy a cold beer in an outdoor hot tub or drink in the bar, after which to move out to one of the many offered evening activities. It is quite popular for Canadian areas to have a Tube Park. The classic long, steep and icy hill that makes a tubing hill run much more than just a little downhill slide. Furthermore, there is the possibility for unlimited amounts of fun for the kids, while the parents can warm themselves on a cup of warm gluhwein in front of the fire.
