According to Ski Holidays in Canada, the official ski destination site of the Canadian tourism commission, "you haven't skied until you've skied Canada".

Those travelling to Canada for winter sports often take ski holidays in Whistler or ski holidays in Banff.

More than 100 ski resorts are located in Canada, offering a wide range of choice to fit the ski styles of all holidaymakers.

"Whether you are a powder-hound hungry for the deep stuff, or want breathtaking views of imposing peaks, these massive mountains have it all," the Ski Club of Great Britain recently commentated.

Whistler is located in British Columbia which is home to four different ski regions. It is also the host province for the 2010 Winter Olympic & Paralympic games.
