The only downside is that there are so many resorts in Canada it would be impossible to name them all, so here is a definitive guide to the best ones in Canada.

First of all let’s look at the most famous resort in Canada, Whistler. The Whistler Blackcomb Mountains are located in British Columbia, in Western Canada, just two hours away from Vancouver. With more than 8,100 acres of skiable terrain, this resort boasts over 200 different runs, and is generally considered as the coolest destination for skiers and snowboarders. The terrain itself offers plenty of variety from gentle slopes to steep bowls for the more experienced snowboarder. The accommodation and facilities are outstanding with a huge variety of bars, restaurants and shops, especially Whistler Village which has an electric atmosphere. Overall this resort is justifiably the most popular one in Canada, and there’s a reason for that, it’s awesome!

Staying in British Columbia, the nest on our list is Whitewater Ski Resort. Recently voted one of North America’s Best Ski Resort by Lonely Planet, this outstanding resort hosts a number of different terrains suitable for all snowboarding abilities. If you’re looking for a resort that has rustic charm then Whitewater is the one for you. It’s simple and relaxed atmosphere gives this resort a retro charm, and with a huge amount of snowfall each year, it’s perfect for the purists.

In Quebec, the pinnacle of any snowboarder’s wish list is to snowboard at Mont Tremblant ski resort. With a much more European style, this resort attracts plenty of foreign visitors as well as North Americans. Charming with a high calibre of facilities, you’ll be amazed at how much this place has to offer; 625.5 acres of terrain, 94 runs and 13 state of the art lifts. Suitable for abilities, there’s even an ice skating rink for those that want a bit more out of their visit.

Finally, there is Red Mountain. Located in British Columbia, this resort can be located near Rossland quite close to the Canadian border. Now, we understand that snowboarding can get a tad bit expensive, so this resort has been chosen because it’s a resort that boasts the best value for money. This is actually Canada’s oldest resort but don’t let that fool you as it has some fantastic facilities; 1,585 acres of land, 88 runs and 2,99 feet of vertical terrain, an excellent choice for the more experienced snowboarder due to its difficult terrains.
