Seems like Some Like it Hot and Others Love it Cold!

Fernie Mountain, BC

When we asked some of our members if they were taking a hot or cold vacation this winter, the response was practically divided 50/50.  It seems that some of us want to leave the cold and relax on the beach while other embraces what winter hands us.

Today we’ll inspire those who are looking for a cold vacation this winter.  As the winter approaches and ski resorts begin to open, it’s time to start planning your winter getaway.  Depending where you live, the mountain could be only a few hours away by car or by plane.

So where will you vacation to this winter?  Here is a list of the top 10 destination in Ski and Snowboard Resorts in Canada.

1)    Whistler/Blackcom, BC
2)    Mont-Tremblant, QC
3)    Kicking Horse Resort, BC
4)    Fernie, BC
5)    Red Resort, BC
6)    Big White Ski Resort, BC
7)    Sun Peaks, BC
8)    Lake Louise, AB
9)    Mont Sainte-Anne, QC
10)    Le Massif, QC

All ten mountains offer diverse terrain and excellent après-ski!  What other resorts top the list?  Let us know where you plan on visiting this winter.

    Hi Gideon!
    These resorts are in no particular order, and we chose only the resorts that were in Canada. When choosing the resorts, we looked at the overall experience, variety and services.
    I agree with you, Jay is a great hill and Vermont does offer some of the best skiing!
    Our next ski post could definitely focus on Vermont resorts!

    Thanks again for your comment,

    Who’s top ten list is this? Mont-Tremblant as number 2! for real, why? Sure it has a good resto/bar scene but for riding are you kidding… It rain’s and then temps drop to -26 for a week or two. Very little snow coverage or ski-able terrain and it has one of the highest ticket prices in the country. If your in the North east pass on Mont-Tremblant and talk a look at Jay, Mont Sainte-Anne or Le Massif no question.
