Canada

Whistler
Canada is home to some of the most beautiful and luxurious ski resorts in North America and the world. While there are ski resorts of all sizes and quality spread across the entire country, the highest concentration of beloved and attractive resorts can be found in the provinces of Alberta, Quebec and, of course, British Columbia.

With 111 runs and a ski-able area that covers 2,504 acres of land the Fernie Alpine Resort in Fernie, British Columbia is o­ne of the most popular in the region. The ratio of beginner, intermediate and advanced slopes is evenly spread, so skiers of all ages and levels of expertise can enjoy themselves. When not skiing, visitors can enjoy historic tours, rock climbing and a tour of the o­nsite brewery.

By far, the best ski resort in Quebec, Canada is the Mont Tremblant Ski Resort. This high end skiing destination is ideal for both family vacations or romantic getaways. The city itself was created rather recently, coming into being in just 2000. As of 2005 there were nearly 100 slopes with a higher number of intermediate and beginner tracks than expert.

Lake Louise
One national park in Alberta features not o­ne but three of the world's best ski resorts. The Banf National Park o­n Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada is home to The Lake Louise Ski Area, Sunshine Village and Mt. Norquay. These well known names in the skiing community account for over 8,000 acres of ski-able land. The ski slopes total over 270, making the large crowds that flock to the three resorts every year comfortable and accommodated.
