Canada 5: Skiing the Canadian Rockies

Canada  5: Skiing the Canadian Rockies

Here we visit the Banff Resort and Chateau Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies; located on the Continental Divide in Alberta, this is Canada's largest single ski area. Not only are there slopes for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, but there are attractions for the non-skiers as well. Restaurants, museums, galleries, shops, spas, and other sports are available so there is something for everyone. Chateau Lake Louise is a year-round playground for celebrities, and this resort hosts a celebrity sports invitational each year. This year's event included Robin Leach, Ali MacGraw, and Angie Dickinson. Another of Canada's premier skiing resorts is located in British Columbia near Vancouver, the Whistler Ski Resort. Canada's premier resort is a family-friendly destination and is special because of its two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb. Side by side, they offer over 8,000 acres of skiing and snowboarding possibilities, but activities are offered year round for everyone. 02/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
