When visiting the north of the border, there are many places to stay for the entire family, but few places are on a must-see list. Canada is famously, or infamously, known for its harshly cold winters. These winters can be rough for some residents, but after many years, they have adapted to the cold, and some people enjoy it.
But one thing that the cold brings out is the snow. The snow is one of many factors that play a role in a Canadian’s winter struggles, but there is a silver lining behind every cloud. In the harsh Canadian snow, that silver lining happens to be the beautiful sights that it creates. These sights are what make the places on a must-see list.
Whistler Blackcomb is round in Whistler, which is home to some of the most famous ski resorts in North America, but what makes Whistler Blackcomb so unique is that it is the largest ski resort in North America. You could spend an entire week at this resort and still not be able to explore the whole thing. It is massive.
Blue Mountains Resort
Blue Mountain ski resort, also known as southern Ontario’s winter playground, is widely accepted as one of Ontario’s most beautiful ski resorts. One thing that Blue mountain is mainly known for is its nightlife. There are 32 ski trails located on Blue mountain, and over 20 stay open at night.
Also, Blue Mountain has a beautiful spa and many stores and shopping centers, and many different spots to stay. Blue Ridge is the perfect place to bring the entire family for some Canadian winter fun.
Elk Ridge Resort
Located in Waskesiu Saskatchewan, roughly an hour away from Prince Albert, this ski resort is the epicenter of good old fashion Canadian winter fun. With various cabins and rooms to choose from, Elk ridge resort is a comfortable place to stay for the entire family, no matter the group’s size.
Plus, Elk ridge is not just a ski resort; even though it has fantastic mountains, there are snowmobile trails, a curling arena, and a pond to play pond hockey. If that isn’t family-friendly Canadian winter fun, then what is?
Overall, the Canadian culture has gotten used to the snow-filled winters and the harshness of the cold. But, they have also lost sight of one of the gorgeous views that most people will see in their lifetime because they are frequently exposed to them. If you haven’t seen these amazing sights, you should check them out on your next winter vacation.
Plus, there is some great real estate available in Canadian towns where you will be able to see the crazy views and the winter wonderland that winter in Canada has to offer. For example, there are some great Whistler homes for sale just north of the border, which happens to be one of the most incredible sights.
