Whistler is a popular winter destination in British Columbia, as the small ski town has two mountains within walking distance from the village. However, there are many excellent ski mountains and resorts in Western Canada that can offer skiers an entirely different experience; here are ten other places to ski in British Columbia and Alberta.
Along with Lake Louise Ski Resort and Norquay, Sunshine Village is the final piece of Banff’s SkiBig3 puzzle; it’s located 15 minutes outside of Banff and is in the middle of the pack. Sunshine Village is larger than Norquay and has a steep terrain with plenty of snow (some say the best snow in the Rockies). Ski Canada magazine even awarded the mountain the best view from the best off-piste run for Delirium Dive — just don’t get too distracted!
