So you’re thinking about taking your next ski trip to Canada, but you’re not sure yet. There is just something about skiing in the land of maple syrup, hockey, and poutine that you are not sure about. Let, let us lay out some reasons why a ski trip to Canada might just be better than skiing in the good ol’ US of A.

  1. Currency exchange rates: That’s right, with the Canadian dollar often weaker than the US dollar, you can get more bang for your buck when skiing in Canada. That means cheaper lift tickets, accommodations, and all the poutine you can eat. Who doesn’t love a good deal?
  2. Crowds: What crowds? Canadian ski resorts tend to be less crowded than their American counterparts (Whistler excluded), especially during peak season. That means shorter lift lines and more room to shred the gnar. Plus, who doesn’t love having the mountain to themselves?
  3. Deep Deep Powder: Canada is known for its epic powder snow, which is as light and dry as it gets. The snow in Canada is often drier than the snow in many parts of the US, which can make for a more enjoyable and memorable skiing experience. It also tends to stack up high and last longer than ski areas to the south, ie, America.
  4. Friendly people: Skiing in Canada means encountering some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Canadians are known for their politeness, chattiness, passion for skiing, and pride in their country.
  5. Foreign land: Skiing in a new country offers a fresh perspective on the sport. It’s an opportunity to experience different terrain, snow conditions, culture, and cuisine. Plus, it’s a chance to explore a new place and create unforgettable memories on and off the mountain. So go ahead, ski Canada!

So there you have it, folks. Canada has got it all: great currency exchange rates, uncrowded slopes, epic powder, and a wide variety of terrain. Don’t just take our word for it, though. Head up to Canada and experience the awesomeness for yourself!
