The Winter season is a festive and enjoyable time in Canada. Most parts of the country are covered with snow and sometimes as early as November. Plus, Canada provides plenty of fun winter activities, like Skiing and Snowboarding. You will find many family-friendly places to go ski and have fun in the snow with your families and enjoy the real charm of winter. Here are some of Canada's best places that are most suitable for skiing and snowboarding, especially for kids.
1. Blue Mountain Resort
The Blue Mountain Resort is located in The Blue Mountain Village, Ontario, Canada. It is one of the most famous places for winter sports activities in the province of Ontario. The season passes are being sold on their website for the winter season of 2020-2021. Although the winter season is not officially here, we have observed snowfall in many areas already. The Blue Mountain Resort is doing pre-bookings for this season, and hopefully, they will start their operations in December. But this time, things would be a bit different due to Covid-19.
Many people have been waiting for this for several months. They have tuned their skis and boards to spend a full day on the slopes of Blue Mountain, but this winter, all people coming for skiing and snowboarding have to take extra precautions due to Covid-19. The resort's management has made it mandatory for the guests to wear face masks and maintain a distance of at least 2 meters (6 Feet) from each other. So guests coming to Blue Mountain resort this winter will experience some change. But the good thing is that they have kept the resort open so you can go there with your children and enjoy it to the fullest. There is also a snow school for the beginner and an option to rent your ski and snowboarding equipment at the resort.
If you are coming to the blue mountain resort from other parts of Canada or from another country, the nearest airports are Toronto Pearson International Airport and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport Terminal. If you are planning to visit Blue Mountain resorts, you can check their packages on their official website and make sure to pre-book your spot because due to COVID-19, they have reduced the spots to ensure their guests' safety this season.
2. Snow Valley
Snow Valley is also one of the best ski resorts in Canada. It is located in the township of Midhurst in Ontario. It is a very suitable place for families' winter activities. Kids can learn to ski and ride at the resort. It has 8 Ski lifts, but currently, all of them are closed. The date of operations of the resort for this season is still to be determined. Hopefully, it will be operational in the early days of December 2020. This season the resort has made some changes to its operational policies due to COVID-19. The passes of this season are available on their website. A full season pass is the best way to enjoy your winters in a fun way with your family. There are plenty of activities here, like skiing, snowboarding, and Snow Tubing.
If you want to take a flight to reach the Snow Valley resort, then the recommended airport is Toronto Pearson Airport, then from Toronto, it will be a 55 minutes drive to reach the resort. If you didn't bring any equipment with you, then you don't have to worry as you can rent the skiing and snowboarding equipment from the resort at very affordable prices.
