Top Off Piste Skiing Trips in Canada
Lots of snow, amazing and varied terrain and no lift lines make Canadian resorts a favorite among skiers from all over the world.
Off-piste skiing in Canada is well-renowned for all the right reasons: great snow, modern infrastructure and super friendly locals. With no shortage of snow, lots of vertical and plenty of challenging terrain (including some hair-raising steeps), British Columbia resorts are a paradise for off-piste skiers. And although British Columbia is probably the area that most foreigners associate with skiing, there are also great skiing opportunities in Alberta and even Quebec and Ontario. If you´ve never tried heliskiing before, you should know that Canada is probably the world’s best heliskiing destination!
Expect freezing temperatures and snow from November to March is BC’s ski resorts. Weather gets more extreme as you move up north so come prepared for the low temperatures.

If you’re coming from abroad and want to ski in one of British Columbia’s major resorts, you’ll probably fly into Vancouver and get a transfer to your resort of choice. In the case of Whistler, for example, there is even a rail connection. Although more expensive than the bus, the views are truly something!
For skiing, you’ll want to visit between late November and April.
