Penticton, BC

Fine fall-line skiing is the main attraction of Apex, 20 miles west of Penticton, B.C. It's a family resort with 67 groomed runs on 2,000 feet of vertical. An alpine-style village, Apex is at the base of the ski trails, where businesses pay homage to the region's heritage—mining. There's ...

Kelowna, BC

Big White boasts just that: "We use only dry, natural Okanagan Powder," is what their literature says. The village sits at 5,800 feet (the highest base area in B.C.), and the lifts carry skiers up to 7,500 feet. That's the same elevation as Whistler and Blackcomb, but the air and snow are ...

Fernie, BC

Fernie may be a bit off the beaten path, but the resort is well worth the time it takes to get there. A three-hour drive from Calgary International Airport, or 1.25-hour trip from the Cranbrook Airport, deposits you into an alpine realm of steep mountain slopes covered in spruce, fir, and larch ...

Calgary, AB

Those who hanker to explore little-known resorts need to try the Kananaskis Valley, site of Nakiska ski area. It was built for the Alpine events of the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games and provides miles of tree-lined trails on a 2,412-foot vertical mountain. Its three high-speed quads, one double chair, and two magic carpets transport skiers to 71 marked trails on 1,021 acres. ...

Golden, BC

The Purcell Mountains of eastern British Columbia are where heli-skiing was born in the 1960s, and until the 2000-01 season, people just flew over the high bowls and ridges of the front range. That's when a major resort finally opened, promising more than 4,000 vertical feet and big-resort ...

Kimberley, BC

A laid-back resort with few crowds, Kimberley Alpine Resort is now one of the most accessible ski hills in the Canadian Rockies. The expansion of the Canadian Rockies International Airport, located 20 minutes away from the resort, has certainly added fuel to one of the hottest real-estate ...

Lake Louise, AB

Of the Banff-Lake Louise area's three ski resorts, Lake Louise is the biggest, weighing in at a whopping 4,200 acres. It posts some other impressive stats, too, including a summit elevation of 8,650 feet, a longest run of five miles, ten lifts to take you to all corners, plus two mid-mountain ...

Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, QU

Consider the romantic 45-minute drive from Quebec City to the 350-year-old fishing village of Baie-Saint-Paul, where the twisted architecture looks lifted right off a Normandy postcard, as the ideal entrée into the world of rural French-Canadian skiing. On the edge of this ski town, the ...

Jasper, AB

Marmot Basin is a gem of a resort tucked away in the relatively remote reaches of Jasper National Park in Alberta's Canadian Rockies. By the sheer quirk of geographic happenstance, it's a place most skiers never reach. The bigger resorts at Banff and Lake Louise, some 150 miles south, swallow ...

Beaupre, QU

It's somewhere around the mid-run sugar shack stop for tire d'erable—a maple taffy made from hot, locally tapped syrup poured onto a trough of snow to cool and rolled, lollipop-style, onto a stick—that it dawns on you: Skiing in Quebec isn't just a colder, Frenchier version of ...
