Friday April 26, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

4 big tour operator and agent friends of ours have big discounts for booking Canada ski holidays now for next winter.

 

What do they know that we don't yet...?

Do they have some advanced snow intell?

Whatever it is, we've been bombarded at PlanetSKI with packages, discounts and reasons for skiing Canada during Winter 2019-20.

SNO travels to resorts including Banff, Lake Louise, Big White, Fernie, Jasper, Kicking Horse, Panorama, Revelstoke, Silver Star, Sun Peaks, Tremblant and Whistler.

You can pick one resort to ski for the whole week or ask them to put together a multi-centre package.

All deals can be found on the SNO website, where we spotted this nice one to Whistler:

With more than enough to ski, see and do, you can easily fill a weeklong stay in Whistler alone.

The Cascade Lodge condos in the centre are available with flights and transfers for £1,091pp, on the week beginning April 11th 2020.

Iglu Ski has sent us over news of 40% off hotel costs in Canada.

Even better, deposits right now are just £75.

"For those who have only skied in Europe, a trip to North America will be an exciting experience!" says Iglu Ski.

"Here at Iglu Ski, we are big fans of skiing and snowboarding in the USA and Canada and are here to help you make your North American dream a reality."

Book before the end of August to save up to 40% on hotels, for the best choice of flights and lift pass discounts.

Iglu Ski travels to Canadian giants Banff and Lake Louise, Whistler, Tremblant, Fernie, Kicking Horse to name a few of the bigger ones...

Or how about Jasper, and its nearby ski area Marmot Basin.

It's renowned for being one of the best powder areas for North America skiing.

The snow is dry, light and fluffy.

Due to the lack of crowds and the dryness of the snow it stays in great condition for weeks after a fall.

As well as skiing, activities on offer include:
  • Snowshoeing

  • Backcountry skiing
  • Biking
  • History
  • Relaxation and wellness
The Jasper National Park has an incredible array of wildlife that you'll see along the roads or train lines long before you arrive.

Don't be surprised to see a herd of wild Mountain Sheep grazing right in town.

They come in because they know the Wolves won't.

In the early morning and evenings the wild Elk roam among the hotels and they have no fear of humans so make sure you don't spook them if you don't want to get chased up a tree.

Moose are also common and these solitary beasts often roam among the pistes on the ski area.

Jasper offers:

  • Outdoor pool
  • Hot tub, sauna and steam room
  • Selection of on-site restaurants
  • Fireside lounge
  • Helath club

Iglu can organise a stay at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.

Crystal Ski has gone biggest on its Canada pursuit.

Or encouragement for us to book there.

We don't need much more convincing to visit the incredible ski country, but to learn a little more...

Crystal's named ski areas best for....

Best for families - Tremblant has much shorter flight times than to those on the west coast- plus it has a pedestrianised village and lots of off-slope activities.

Best for après - Whistler's après options rival the no. of ski runs there, whether you want to dance on the bar at Garibaldi Lift Co or sip classy cocktails at the Fairmont's Mallard Lounge.

Best for beginners - Lake Louise has plenty of easier slopes, even claiming a green run from even the very top.

Best for intermediates - Jasper has great snow and more than enough varied terrain to keep progressing skiers and boarders entertained.

Best for experts - The steep and deep of Fernie and the in-bounds off-piste areas at Panorama probably win out.
