Have you ever thought a day of skiing was just simply out of your reach? Well, it doesn’t have to be! You know that not all ski resorts are that expensive—or that pretentious. Well, fear not, because even a wonderful ski vacation can be done on a budget if you know where to look and here is a list 5 of the Most Affordable Ski Resorts in Canada:
1. Whistler Blackcomb
Located out west near Vancouver. Whistler has mega terrain that ranges from mild too wild, an abundance of non-skiing activities, and plentiful accommodation from budget too opulent. A class of its own, it is justifiably considered one of the hottest ski destinations in the world. Massive, it offers amazing terrain diversity and a very efficient lift system, and also includes an abundance of off-slope activities.
2. Revelstoke Mountain Resort
This had been known by cat skiers and heli skiers for the legendary Selkirk powder that falls in abundance. Realizing the potential for the perfect location where snow dumps, Revelstoke Mountain Resort opened in the season of 2007-08, and development continues to turn this powder paradise into a mega-resort. Just so you know, this ski resort has potential to become the biggest and best resort in Canada.
3. Boler Mountain
This resort located in Ontario, Canada, Boler started to operate in 1949 as a not-for-profit skiing location, and that definitely explains the prices. Over the years, the resort expanded but is still small. There are 15 runs, a terrain park, a tube hill, and 4 lifts. There is a ski school within the resort as well.
4. Lake Louise, Banff National Park
One of the largest ski areas in all of North America, and voted as Canada’s best ski resort is Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada. It offers 4,200 skiable acres and 145 runs. It is potentially one of the most beautiful places in the world to ski or snowboard. Ski Lake Louise Canada for the “wow” factor where the views are nothing short of spectacular!
There are plenty of gentle slopes, which make the area perfect for families and beginners. The ski season opens early each year, and in mid-winter the temperatures can get downright frigid, so pack accordingly. However, if you want to experience five-star facilities at three-star prices, this is the place to come.
5. Red Mountain Resort
Canada’s oldest ski resort Red Mountain Resort is located in Rossland, BC, just a 10-min drive from the US/Canadian border. There are more than 1,585 skiable acres, 110 runs, and 7 lifts. The resort is suitable for all categories of skiers. Although having a reputation of being a difficult mountain, there are enough wide spaces for the beginners as well.
