Fact – there are some fabulous winter sports locations in Canada. It is definitely on my wishlist to one day be able to ski down one of the magical ski slopes in the Canadian Rockies but the west is by no means has the sole claim on top winter sports locations in Canada. Indeed, they stretch right across the country – here’s a pick of some of the best.
1. Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia
A venue for multiple events at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Whistler Blackcomb is one of the premier winter sports locations in Canada. Just a 2-hour drive outside of metropolitan Vancouver, Whistler has all the components of a top-notch ski resort - world-class snow conditions, excellent infrastructure, and an enormous varied ski area. There aren’t too many places on earth where you can heli-ski, ice-skate, and bungee jump all in the same day, but Whistler offers all that and more. In addition to being conveniently close to Vancouver, there’s also plenty of excellent chalet-style accommodation here as well as a lively village that’s still buzzing from the Olympics.
