Canada has a special reputation among skiing lovers. At first sight, an elusive, difficult and perhaps too distant country is one of the best ski destinations in the world. No wonder that it finds itself on many peoples’ wishlist. Luckily, the above allegations are not true! Canada is very affordable, accessible, and suitable for all types of skiers. The Rocky Mountains in British Columbia are an ideal playground for all lovers of fresh snow.
