Have you heard about the slow, steady decline of the Swiss Alps?
Me either. But, if there was some mass uproar over the most beloved slopes that Europe has to offer, I think we all know where the fault would lie.
More and more avid skiers are turning to Canadian ski resorts for their next winter-filled adrenaline rush. For those on this side of the Atlantic, Canada has some excellent opportunities for rest and relaxation at their ski resorts, and some of the best recreation you’ll find on their white-powder mountains.
Let’s dive in to some of the best resorts and slopes all over Canada!
