When it comes to thinking of places to ski, there are a few destinations that undoubtedly take the cake. The French Alps, and Aspen, and Vail, Colorado, probably come to mind. Canada also has excellent skiing, however.


The most important factor when picking a place to go skiing is the snow report. Onthesnow.com offers comprehensive reports so users can see exactly what the snow looks like at their resort and mountain of choice. Speaking of choices, you will have tons if you go skiing in Canada. There are 287 ski resorts in the country offering nearly 4,000 kilometers of slopes. Even if you ski constantly, it will be tough to exhaust all of your skiing options in Canada.


It is a good idea to plan your trip for sometime between November and April, as this is generally considered ski season in Canada. It is possible to ski outside of these timeframes, but the snow is unreliable and it is unwise to plan to travel to the country for the express purpose of skiing outside of this span.


If the region truly matters to your skiing preference, it might be a good idea to pick a mountain near a city you wish to visit. For example, if you want to see Montreal, take a 1.5-hour trek to Mont Tremblant for some great skiing in Quebec.


No matter where you plan to ski, you will find friendly locals and ski instructors willing to take your skill to the next level. From beginners to experts, everyone will find something to like about skiing in Canada.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
