At the latest since the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, it has been clear that Canada is more than just a summer destination. In the extensive ski areas in the west of the country, winter sports enthusiasts get their money's worth. Whether on the slopes, on touring skis on the peaks of the Rockies or freeskiing – the country holds a range of winter sports activities for every taste.
The most famous ski area in Canada is Whistler Blackcomb. After a two-hour drive from Vancouver, the more than 200 marked slopes open up unimagined possibilities. The ski resort has been awarded several times as the best in North America.
Canada's highest ski area, however, is located in the middle of Banff National Park. Especially those who love steep and challenging slopes can really let off steam here.
And who doesn't know the spectacular downhill races of the World Cup ski circus in Lake Louise? With this ski resort, the province of Alberta is home to a veritable winter sports jewel. Guests can enjoy over 140 groomed and natural slopes surrounded by glaciers and turquoise lakes.
