There’s a lot to be said about winter in Canada. Any one of Western Canada’s ski resorts is a good place to start, such as: Whistler, Banff, Fernie and Sun Peaks.

No matter which Western Canadian Resort you choose to park your parka, you’ll find a breadth of experiences.

The staples: skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, dog sledding and snowmobiling. Other winter joys often include skating under the stars, horse-drawn sleigh rides and snow tubing.

You’ll be delighted by the diverse culinary experiences, too, from dishes inspired by local ingredients to innovative fusions, from Canadian wines to Canadian microbrewed beers, and from romantic dining rooms with stunning views to party-hardy nightlife spots.

In Canada, winter is a magnificent season to “Keep Exploring.”
