With towering mountains, world-class resorts, lively après-ski action and that famous Canadian hospitality, Canada’s ski season is best in snow for winter 2023-24.
From British Columbia and Alberta to Quebec, here’s what’s new for winter enthusiasts in the Great White North and why you should make tracks to Canada for the upcoming ski season.
BC snow business bounty
From Vancouver to the Rocky Mountains, you’ll find 13 destination ski resorts in British Columbia with wide-open runs, deep snow and resorts such as ski-in, ski-out villages Whistler Blackcomb, Sun Peaks, Silver Star Mountain Resort and Big White Ski Resort.
Whistler’s Fitzsimmons Express has just opened with the eight-person high-speed chair replacing the four-person chairlift and increasing uphill capacity by 73 per cent in winter.
Sun Peaks has introduced adaptive sports with lessons for all abilities while SilverStar has doubled its chair capacity with 21 new gondola cabins.
Finally, Big White Ski Resort celebrates 60 years in 2023 with the new Spa at Stonebridge Lodge opening this winter.
Alberta winter newness
The Knob Quad Chairlift comes to Marmot Basin in Jasper National Park in December 2023, providing access to above-treeline bowls and chutes, including the newly opened MARMOT CIRQUE terrain.
Other new Banff adventures include Bikescape e-bike fat biking tours in Banff National Park, the Nightrise at the Banff Gondola after-dark immersive Stoney Nakoda First Nation experience, an all-new Indigenous menu at The Maple Leaf and Banff Sunshine ‘selfie stations’ for that perfect pic.
Quebec for ski connoisseurs
