Ski Holidays in Canada

Canada is one of the world’s favourite winter playgrounds and offers a heady combination of superb skiing, an enviable snow record, staggering scenery and ski resorts with something for everyone.

Our featured resorts have been chosen as the best options in Canada for British skiers and as you’d expect they all offer a blend of superb lodging, exceptional facilities and outstanding service. The snow record in Canada is second to none and it boasts a long ski season that’s the envy of the world. Experience everything from the might of Whistler in British Columbia, with over 8000 acres of terrain, to Canada's second largest ski area and excellent ski-in/ski-out village at Sun Peaks, or the undoubted charm of smaller resorts like Tremblant in Québec– perfect for the first family ski trip in North America.

For an idea of holiday costs, you’ll find price guides on individual accommodation pages.

Canada Travel Options

Our aim is to make your journey from the UK to your chosen ski resort in Canada as easy and as stress free as possible. We have first-hand experience of all the different travel options and routes, and will be happy to advise which itinerary will be best suited to your party size and specific requirements. For travel to Canada you will need a valid passport + a valid eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization):




British Citizens need a valid full 10 year passport that should be valid for the duration of your stay (we recommend that you have at least 3 months validity on your passport). If you are travelling to Canada with any children who do not have the same family name or as a single parent with your children then you must carry a letter confirming your right to be travelling with the child or children. For information contact the Canadian High Commission on Canadian High Commission: 0207 258 6600

eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization):


Under Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) program, citizens from countries other than the USA who do not require a visa to enter Canada need to obtain an online authorisation before flying to Canada. The application process is quick and easy at a low cost of only CAD7 per person, and eTA is valid for up to five years. You apply online, providing basic personal information similar to what is currently collected when you arrive in Canada. eTA is convenient and paperless, which means most visa-exempt nationals who wish to travel to Canada will have their eTA granted within minutes of applying. This requirement is mandatory for travel to Canada. You can apply for your eTA at (this is the official site and the ONLY one you should use!). You must have your eTA in place before travelling to Canada. If you renew or change your passport then you need to reapply for your eTA. Your eTA information MUST match your APIS information. We strongly recommend that you apply for eTA well in advance of your departure date.
