More British skiers go to Canada than to the USA. In many ways it combines all the best of the USA, good service,
great lift systems and piste grooming, reliable snow cover from November to May, fantastic scenery but lower prices!
The other key factor is flights; both BA and Air Canada offer direct flights from the UK, without the need to clear
immigration mid way through the journey. This combined with charter flights and the new budget airline Zoom help keep
holiday prices down. We suggest that you stay for at least 10 days to allow for adjustments in time zones.
Our clients always ask for us for Whistler and Banff,
but there are serveral other resorts are well worth the trip, Jasper, Fernie,
Tremblant and the new star for Canada of Big White,
Silver Star and Kicking Horse.
Many of Canada's ski resorts can be bitterly cold in January months, but modern ski clothing copes well.
The accommodation is mainly in good quality hotels and condos. We offer a small selection of catered ski chalets in Whistler although
these are never located close to the main village centre.
Canada has lots of snow, if you are the kind of skier who likes to sunbathe by a restaurant stick to Canada in March,
if on the other hand you want knee-deep powder head for Western Canada.
Canada is the home of heli-skiing, It's expensive but there is nothing to beat skiing on virgin snow.
It's worth pre booking from the UK if you intend to Heli-ski, ask our sales advisers for assistance.
Eating out in Canada is cheaper than in the USA and the Alps. Remember that only over 18s and over 19 in British Columbia can be served alcohol.
This is rigidly enforced. We suggest that if you are just 18 or 19 or look young, take your passport with you to bars and restaurants.
