Canada is a Snow Lover’s Dream

Had dreams of bottomless powder? Time for you to wake up in Canada. Endless terrain and some of the world’s deepest powder makes Canada a winter playground for skiers and snowboarders. Why else would it be one of the most popular snow destinations in the world? Canadian resorts have a lot to offer that European mountains don’t, including two to three times the snowfall. For the thrill seekers, you’ll be pointing your tips vertical in some of the steepest mountains on the globe and jacking the heart rate on endless tree runs, glaciers, and chutes. Snow hounds will be bouncing over fresh champagne powder, and any beginner will be right at home under the wing of North America’s finest ski schools.

Can you ski here during COVID-19?

What our customers say

"... if you’re not feeling comfortable with extremely steep terrain and cliffs, there are still plenty of deep powder playgrounds around. The cool thing is that the guides will choose the route suitable to your abilities. Additionally, with the guides you will progress your skiing a lot, maximizing the fun factor."

Grigory
(Last Frontier Heliskiing)

"I’m a 38 years old freerider with significant experience. I have been to 6 heli-ski trips so far in places like Alaska, Switzerland and Caucasus. I must admit, I was very impressed by what Bella Coola has to offer. The terrain is diversified and demanding. Fresh, waist or chest deep powder is abundant. The snow quality is really amazing…"

Krzysztof
(Bella Coola Heli Sports)

"I loved every second of my season in Canada, Whistler is such an amazing place. The training and coaches at Pro Ride were of a very high standard, and I feel like I learned more than I ever thought I would be capable of. My Whistler experience was about so much more than snowboarding though... Pro Ride made me feel like part of a 'family' from the first day I arrived in Canada, I met some very interesting people and made some great friends for life. I couldn't recommend it enough!!!"

Bianca
(Pro Ride Snowboard Camps)

"It’s a little less intense with a snowcat. It takes longer to get the group to the top, but that’s the time when I can get some rest, chat with the others about the lines we just skied or eat a sandwich. And believe me, you’ll still get to ski from morning til late afternoon and come back to the lodge tired and satisfied. Talking about the lodge, it’s a modern and cozy house with sauna that offers very good food and great atmosphere. I’ll be back next year."

Andrea
(Great Northern Snowcat Skiing)

"Our family spent a great week at Bighorn Heli Lodge. The place is really luxury and every member of our family found something to do. From youngest to oldest. Of course we went heliskiing. It was amazing. That was an experience we’ll never forget…Food was great, staff helpful and and all services were on the appropriate level."

Jasmina
(Bighorn Heli Lodge Revelstoke)

"Of all my travels around the world, this was one of the best times on my life. Every day I spent there was pure perfection. The lodge, the staff, the guides, snow , helis,..everything was perfect. Thanks to everyone of Eagle Pass Heliskiing team for putting so much effort on making our holidays so special."

Canada is the Perfect Destination For Your Snow Holiday

01

Canada is a powder hound’s paradise

Wide-open spaces, reliable conditions, first-class accommodation, and of course some of the deepest steepest powder on the globe, are just a few of the reasons every skier and snowboarder dreams of going to Canada. The resorts and backcountry ski trip operators of Canada are known for providing cutting-edge service using some of the most advanced technology and machinery in the world. The first-class treatment in Canada means you won’t be waiting in long lift lines or staying at crowded lodges. Operators in Canada are known for having all the amenities of the world’s leading resorts to minimize the crowd factor and maximize your experience.

02

Incredible terrain and conditions in all canadian regions

No matter where you go, you can expect epic snow in Canada. Most regions in Canada are known for having massive annual snowfalls, sometimes receiving two or three times as much snowfall as in the Alps. With these consistent conditions and varied terrain, including steep chutes, wide-open glacier skiing, and tree skiing, you can see why Canada is the perfect place for every type of skier and rider.

If that’s not enough to excite you, imagine getting out of bounds via snowcat or helicopter, and freeskiing on some of the longest uninterrupted trails in the world. In the end, you’ll need to get there yourself to understand why skiing in Canada is an out-of-this-world experience.

03

A huge range of options for your ski trip

Our snow trips in Canada include a huge range of accommodation types to suit your budget. From budget hostels to luxury hotels and lodges, we have something to suit you. Canada is as versatile as its mountain ranges, with epic entertainment on offer for your after-ski enjoyment or secluded lodges, spas and saunas to help you reset. Canada funnels in skiers and riders from across the globe, so our packages include travel options to and from major cities and airports. Having choice is a luxury that every traveler deserves, and that’s exactly what you’ll get when booking your Canadian adventure with LUEX.

Get to know the Canadians

Canadians are some of the world’s most hospitable and fun-loving people in the world. Whether jumping on a chairlift or ordering up a storm on your après ski session, you’ll find incredible service across every Canadian resort. You might go for the snow, but you’ll leave with a love for the locals.

05

World-class snow in Canada

Reliability. It’s what every powder hunter wants when booking a winter getaway. So much is dependent on conditions, so it’s no surprise Canada leads the way as a global ski destination with its incredibly reliable snowfall. Poor conditions are rare and powder days are commonplace in Canada. The Great White North usually gets about three times as much snowfall as Europe, which makes it a European snow lover’s dream.

Canadian Mountain Ranges
Snow Trips to the Monashees

The Monashee Mountains in British Columbia are Canada's snow factory with 10 meters of fresh pow delivered to your doorstep each winter.
