Skiing in Canada (INFOGRAPHIC)

Get to Know Canada's Top Ski Resorts

Top Provinces to Ski in Canada

  • British Columbia
  • Alberta
  • Quebec

The most skiable vertical feet are at Whistler/Blackcomb in BC - nearly a mile of vertical drop.

Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC, Banff in Alberta and Whistler Blackcomb will give you the most lifts up the mountain, and the longest run is a 7 mile slope at Whistler/Blackcomb.

Beginners will find a higher percentage of easy runs at Fernie Alpine Resort in BC. Quebec's Mont Tremblant is mostly made up of intermediate and expert terrain, and Kicking Horse in Golden, BC is over half expert-level skiing.

When Will the Snow Fly?

Plan to ski in Canada from November through April, and for some of the longest-lasting spring skiing, the top of Blackcomb is typically open through mid-June, since the Whistler/Blackcomb resort gets the deepest snow - an average of 33.5 feet per year.
