Skiing, Snowboarding, And Snowmobiling in Canada

Not for nothing is Canada known as the Great White North, and its snowy terrain provides some of the world’s best skiing. In the east, the Laurentian resorts of Mont Tremblant and Mont-Ste-Anne offer excellent downhill skiing.
Moving west, the resorts of Whistler, Lake Louise, and Banff provide unforgettably dramatic skiing. High in the Rockies, powder snow awaits the adventurous; heli-skiing (lifting skiers by helicopter to pristine slopes) takes place on the deserted northern peaks.
Many of the runs are higher than those in the European Alps, particularly in Banff and Lake Louise. These sites have held major competitions, including the Winter Olympics in 1976. Another advantage to skiing in Canada is the proximity of the mountains to major cities; it is perfectly possible to spend the day zipping down slopes and then dine out in town.
Cross-country skiing is available across the country, but is particularly fine on southern and central Ontario’s rolling terrain and Quebec’s Laurentian mountain range and Eastern Townships. Most downhill ski resorts have a network of cross-country trails, but there are also dedicated cross-country ski areas and numerous parks with trails.
Snowboarding has become increasingly popular in snowsports centers across the country. All downhill resorts have a few slopes set aside for boarders.
Snowmobiles are a necessity for many living in rural areas, but snowmobiling is also a popular winter sport. Ontario has almost 50,000 km (35,000 miles) of snowmobile trails.
Seasoned riders can cover up to 500 km (300 miles) in two days. Traveling in groups is advised; there are many new and popular pitstops en route. These “snow inns” often offer package deals
