If you’re after the ultimate in Canadian ski locations, you absolutely must visit Whistler Blackcomb. This is the nation’s premier ski destination, located amongst the mountains of British Columbia. You’ll find Whistler Village just two hours’ north of Vancouver. With its array of slopes, alpine bowls, glaciers, parks and half pipes, you and your sweetheart can find something for your skill level – whether you’re a beginner or an expert!

Start off your romantic getaway in Whistler Village, which looks like it came straight out of a fairytale. With charming architecture, warm glowing lights and roaring fires, it’s the perfect wintry destination for lovers. Snuggle up in a warm coat and wander the snowy lanes, discovering mountain culture and museums, great shops, eateries and bars along the way. Sip on a hot chocolate at a local cafe after a hard long day out on the slopes, or perhaps enjoy a glass of velvety mulled wine. There are always great festivals and events taking place in this thriving region, so keep an eye out. The accommodation is second-to-none, too. There are plenty of hotels, condos, chalets and stunning retreats to enhance the dreamy atmosphere. Nothing says winter quite like curling up in your wintery chalet with the one you love, watching the snowflakes drift along outside!

But Whistler isn’t the only prime destination where you can hit the slopes and snuggle up in a gorgeous log cabin. Banff, in Alberta, is another favourite location for skiing enthusiasts. Big White also has some of the best powder in the nation, found in the Monashee Mountains in British Columbia. Silver Star is another old-worldly gem perfect for loved-up couples on a romantic getaway, also located in British Columbia. The picturesque scenery and charming village make for the perfect starry-eyed holiday abroad. 

There’s no two ways about it: for a romantic honeymoon or holiday for two amongst the snow, Canada’s definitely a must-do. Whether you’re ski enthusiasts or prefer to spend your days curled up with a mug of hot chocolate, your winter getaway will be filled with romance and memories to cherish at any one of these ski resorts!
