Sun Peaks – The second-largest ski area in Canada is loved for its alpine and Nordic skiing, and serves up some hearty fare at venues including Powder Hounds and The Burger Joint.
Best For Apres-Ski
Big White – Well known for its family-friendly charm, Big White also offers a killer apres-ski scene. Leading the pack is Snowshoe Sam’s with its laidback pub atmosphere and live bands. Meanwhile, The Moose Lounge & Bistro offers daily drink specials.
Best For Family Fun
Lake Louise – From tubing and ice skating to sleigh rides and dog-sledding, this ski destination in Alberta is well loved by families. There’s a ski school for littlies and daycare facilities, too.
Best For Exploring
Fernie – Steep, ungroomed terrain – much of which is sheltered by snow-laden trees – plus hard-to-find runs make this Alberta resort ideal for adventure enthusiasts.
Best For Having It All
Mont Tremblant – Skiable terrain for all levels and a storybook village vibe are just some of the drawcards for this fun Quebec ski spot.
