BK corporate --  The best places to ski and snowboard near your city


Canadian winter can be lengthy and chilly. Hibernating at home only makes the winter feel longer. Bentall Kennedy Residential Services wants to help make winter more wonderful. Here are the best places to ski and snowboard near your city.


Glen Eden

Glen Eden is only about a half hour drive from Oakville, Burlington or Hamilton. With very reasonable lift ticket prices ($41 for an adult) plus equipment rentals and fun beginner runs, this is the perfect place to test your skills or try something new.  


Lake Louise

The Calgary area is home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world. Lake Louise is a world-class resort, boasting 4,200 acres of skiable/boardable terrain covering four mountains. Even if you're not an avid skier, the breathtaking views of Banff National Park are worth the trip.


Rabbit Hill

Rabbit Hill Snow Resort is located only 30 kilometers southwest of downtown Edmonton. It's about a 45-minute drive from St. Albert. The beginner runs, affordable lift tickets, and pro lessons make it a great choice for newbies and there are plenty of black diamond runs for the more advanced among us.



When you have a craving to carve up the slopes in Kitchener or Waterloo, Chicopee is there for you.


Sasquatch Mountain Resort

Sasquatch Mountain Resort is family-friendly, smoke free ski resort about an hour and a half drive from Langley.


Dagmar Ski Resort

Dagmar Ski Resort is less than 30 minutes from Markham. It's so close, you could pop out for a few runs, right now!


Mont Tremblant Resort

Mont Tremblant Resort is only about an hour and a half north of Montréal in the beautiful Laurentian Mountains. This is home to some of the best runs east of the Rockies.


Cypress Mountain Ski Area

When you need to hit the slopes near New Westminster, head about an hour north and carve it up at Cypress Mountain.


Blue Mountain

About 2 hours north of Toronto, you'll find Blue Mountain Resort. With 42 runs and trails, including an abundance of beginner and intermediate runs, freestyle terrain park, and stellar apres ski village culture, this is by far your best option nearby.



Whistler/Blackcomb is quite simply one of the best ski and snowboard resorts in the world. It will take you about 2 and a half hours from Vancouver, so day trips are possible. If you need a closer run, check out Grouse Mountain.


Time flies when you're having fun! When you fly down the mountain at these ski hills, even the longest winter will fly by before you know it. For information on Bentall Kennedy Residential Properties near you, please visit our website.
