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.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
