There has always been a kind of understanding, or fellowship between Aussies and Canadians. It's made Canada one of our favourite destinations worldwide. So if the idea of warm and friendly hospitality, funny accents and prices on par with home grabs you, just wait till you lay your eyes on the snow! Can you beat that dry Canadian powder?
Canada offers us a plethora of snow holiday options as the country is virtually covered in the stuff!
To start with we have to talk about the biggest Ski Resort in the continent, Whistler Blackcomb. Every Canadian ski holiday should take in at least a few days here, there are over 200 named runs, catering to every skier or rider. Whistler is a pedestrian only village, giving a new meaning to ski-in ski-out...no doubt will be a worthy host to those upcoming Olympics.
Whether you want good value, budget accommodation or to spoil yourself in a delux condo with it's own slopeside Jacuzzi, Whistler offers it all.
Only hours away there's famous Big White, Silver Star, Red Mountain and Fernie. Then cross a state to the very european Banff, Kicking Horse and the spectacular Lake Louise, all an accessible drive, or just fly to Calgary.
The stunning scenery, the rides, the people, the whole Canadian experience will be one you'll remember. The Lifties will make you feel right at home too, over half of them are our finest exports!
