Canada’s East Coast may not have the grandeur of the West Coast’s Rocky Mountains, but it still has lots to offer! If you find yourself in Nova Scotia this winter, be sure to check out their top-notch ski areas.

Ski Martock

Ski Martock is located less than an hour from Halifax, and it’s a great place for families to enjoy a day on the slopes. It has seven relatively easy trails spread out over the hill and offers a quad chairlift, bunny hill, T-bars, chalet, and more.

Ski Wentworth is another great destination, and while it is farther from Halifax, you’ll find more trails and activities here than at Ski Martock. With 249 meters (816 feet) of vertical height, the ski resort offers 20 alpine trails as well as cross-country ski and snowshoe trails.

Ski Cape Smokey

Ski Cape Smokey is a bit of a hidden gem, and it’s currently run by volunteers after closing its doors as a business in 2006. It’s the highest ski hill in the province, at 305 meters (1,001 feet) in height, and only has a few trails open due to it being fully operated by volunteers.
