For business travellers looking to hit the slopes with clients or as a post-meeting way to get some aerobic exercise, Cheapflights.ca has compiled its list of Top 10 Places to Ski Like an Olympian.
Beginner and expert skiers alike can experience that Olympic feeling while visiting any of these landmark mountains.
Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia – Arguably the largest ski resort in North America, Whistler Blackcomb is also one of the most visited. Made up of two peaks, Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Peak, Whistler Blackcomb has more than 200 ski trails zigzagging through the Fitzsimmons range. The 2010 Olympics divided all its ski and snowboarding events between the two peaks, so you’re sure to ski over some history when you tackle this ski resort.
Nakiska Mountain Resort, Alberta – Technically, the 1988 Olympics were held in Calgary, but all alpine ski events were held at Nakiska, on Mount Allan, in Kananaskis County. A relatively small resort, Nakiska boasts only 64 ski runs, but you’re almost always guaranteed good skiing. Nakiska is now an official training centre for Alpine Ski Teams around the world every year. Nakiska averages about 95 inches of snow per year, but has extensive snow-making abilities.
