The Canadian Rockies offer some of the best skiing in the world.
Scenic, snow, sometimes steep, with superb lodging ad dining.
Lake Louise in
Banff is often on the top ski resorts list for scenery, while
is a favorite among Canadian freeskiers and skiers looking for the best après ski
scene. A ski trip to Canada is other-worldly without the hassle of having to fly
to the European Alps. The best Canadian ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains
include British Columbia ski resorts -
Horse, Revelstoke, Whistler,
Panorama, Sun Peaks, Fernie, and Kimberly
along the Powder Highway.
In British Columbia, Kicking Horse and
Revelstoke are two relatively new ski
resorts in Canada, both with huge vertical and tons of challenging terrain plus
the option of nearby cat ski and heli ski day trips to make for an ideal
Canadian Rocky mountain ski vacation with a combination of resort skiing, with
groomed trails, glades, backcountry bowls plus the excitement and promise of
fresh powder reached by snow cat or helicopter.
Canadian heli skiing is known throughout the ski world as the greatest. Our
editors have tried heli- skiing, and they haven’t been the same since (its the
ear to ear grin). To find the best heli skiing in Canada,
we have skied with Bella Coola, the Purcells with
Purcell Heli Skiing, and the Monashees with
Eagle Pass Heli Skiing, among other
outfitters like CMH, Mike Wiegele and RK Heli.
A heli ski trip should be on your
skier's bucket list, and Canada is the place. Heli ski trips can be
just for a day, or an all-inclusive week with luxury lodging in a mountain
cabin, gourmet meals and plenty of vertical powder skiing.
Cat skiing is on the
rise in the Canadian Rockies too.
