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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

Panorama, BC

A huge mountain with an intimate village, Panorama has carved out a niche for itself as a low-key, family-oriented destination resort. A little too far for day trippers from Calgary (three hours from the Calgary airport), and without the glitz to draw huge numbers from afar, this resort is ...

Rossland, BC

Start your Red Mountain experience with a middle-of-the-road cruiser like the Back-Trail off the Red Chairlift or the Paradise Area on Granite Mountain, where you create your own line through the well-spaced pine. Then it's time to up the ante and move on to the Motherlode Chair for some deep ...

Banff, AB

In terms of size, Mt. Norquay is overshadowed by its behemoth neighbors, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. But don't let this fact dissuade you from spending a day at this fun and somewhat edgy little resort. Its 28 runs offer a mix of beginner, intermediate, and expert terrain, though overall ...

Nelson, BC

Chances are you have heard the whispers about Whitewater Ski Resort outside Nelson, British Columbia, and just how epic the skiing can be—deep powder, few crowds, plenty of steeps. And then you get there, and looking up at three lifts, measly base lodge, and smattering of runs with barely ...
