Powder Triangle. Just mention those 2words to any serious snowboarder or skier and watch them froth. To powder junkies, this triangle of awesomeness in British Columbia is home to some of the best places to ski in Canada as well as one of the best places to take a snow holiday in the world – thanks to its legendary snowfall. There's a bit of debate to how far the Powder Triangle extends, but it includes the areas near Nelson, Rossland, Fernie, Meadow Creek, Revelstoke and Golden. So if powder is your thing, head to Red Mountain (if you’re looking for an inexpensive trip); Revelstoke Mountain Resort (if you're in to heli-skiing or cat-skiing); or Whitewater (if you don't want to share your fresh, delicious powder with crowds). Canada is truly an institution for snowboarders and skiers.

Canada is known for its epic ski terrain with incredibly long runs, some of them hair-raising – the double black diamond runs. And it's also famous for its sweet ski-in, ski-out accommodation. Imagine riding right to your front door? Get on a plane and ski Canada stat with Student Flights' cheap ski holiday packages to the Great White North.

Ski Destinations

Its amazing terrain isn't just the only reason why Whistler is a great place to ski in Canada; it's also a sweet pedestrian-friendly alpine village with stacks of off-slope activities, restaurants, bars and shops. Here you can try dog-sledding, zip-lining or even enjoy a fondue dinner. If you're a landscape lover, head to Lake Louise. The scenery here is simply breathtaking. It's also the second largest ski resort in Canada. You can also ski in Ontario and Quebec, but the word on the street is that these are adequate for the locals, but not worthy of an overseas ski holiday considering there’s so much on offer in western Canada. If you're a pro, Canada is arguably one of the best places in the world to go heli-skiing – with British Columbia as the capital of the heli-skiing world. The Purcell Mountains, Selkirk, Monashee and Cariboo Mountains are heli-skiing havens complete with incredible annual snowfalls of up to 15 metres.

Ski Resorts

Whistler is one of the most popular ski destinations in the world. The resort is massive. In fact, it's the largest ski resort in North America and the biggest in the world outside of Europe. Whistler Blackcomb ski resort has an incredible 3,307 hectares of terrain, over 200 marked trails and a huge vertical drop of 1,609 metres. Hello, neverending runs. Canada literally has something for everyone when it comes to snow-loving options, and their resorts are in pretty tiptop shape too. For the best advanced terrain, head to Kicking Horse – the resort here is one to remember. Tree-skiing lovers will fall for Whitewater resort, which offers some good after-dark activities too. And head to Panorama resort for a quieter experience of cheap ski holidays in Canada – it’s a best kept secret-type thing.
