Canada downhill skiing is a popular winter activity in Canada during the winter season especially in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. Ski hill destinations are well developed in many areas attracting many to the mountains.
Canada ski mountains are well known for their quality powder snow and ski facilities. Many of our Canada ski mountain resorts are ranked high on many top 10 ski lists worldwide.
The ski season in Canada usually begins in December and runs until mid April - weather permitting. Each ski hill has a selection of green (easy), blue (intermediate) and black diamond (difficult) ski runs. All serviced by a network of chair lifts, gondolas, t-bars and tow ropes.
The ski hills in Canada range in size, services and amenities. There are small ski hills with minimum services and a select number of ski runs. There are large mountain resort villages, designated townships, with every service under the sun.
Most Canada ski hills have a lodge and provide ski rentals and ski lessons. The larger ski mountain resorts are self contained villages with services including accommodations, gift shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, ski shops, liquor store, entertainment, retail stores and attractions.
