Spring Skiing

Spring Skiing

Jump to section

When the temperatures start to warm and the blue-bird days are many, head to the mountains for some spring skiing. Take advantage of great packages and specials, long daylight hours and, in late spring, short lines at these premier Canadian ski resorts. Canada’s ski season is long, too, extending into May and even June. Add in anything from dogsledding, ice skating and fatbiking, then wrap the day après on a sunny slopeside patio.
