Canada has some great ski resorts, no question. But when it came to picking the best of them, it was easy – big and beautiful! Whistler and Sun Peaks are the two biggest ski areas in Canada and offer everything you could possibly want or need for your winter!
Whistler Blackcomb is generally regarded as the best ski resort in the World, and has countless awards for its terrain, snow parks, après ski, activities and restaurants to prove it.
Not only is it the best, but its the biggest too! With over 8000 acres of skiable terrain, it dwarfs would-be challengers into submission and boasts hundreds of trails and even has 5 snow parks and a super pipe to boot. You could spend a full season in Whistler and still find new areas to ski every day.
The vast terrain offers something from everybody which is what makes Sun Peaks such an amazing location. Sun kissed Sundance Mountain offers an abundance of mellow (ish) groomed runs for intermediates. Mt Tod features awesome advanced terrain in open bowls, challenging gladed terrain, and long groomers, whilst north facing Mt Morrisey also has thigh burning cruisers as well as a few steeps, making Sun Peaks the perfect resort for snowsports instructor training.
Banff is a unique, stunning location, and is home to 3 renown ski resorts, 2 of which can be named among Canada’s largest ski areas . The combination of having so many resorts and so much ski terrain within close proximity to Banff means you really do have the largest and most diverse ski area in Canada at your fingertips.
As Canada’s largest truly ski in/ski out resort, there is a sizeable reputation to live up to, which Big White takes to new levels.
Big White is a perfect example of a completely natural playground. Steeps, groomers, off piste, glades, bumps, rollers, various groomed and power bowls, Big White has it all and more.
