Winter Activities > Alpine Ski

Alpine skiing is a perfect mental release while exploring the hundreds of kilometers of abundant wilderness anywhere from BC to NL. Keeping in mind to always ski responsibly ensures that all from beginner to advanced can safely set out on an alpine adventure. 

It’s no secret that Canada possesses outstanding natural terrain people travel from across the world to experience. It should also be no secret that alpine safe skiing guidelines, especially for beginners still learning the basics of turning, balance and control, are essential.

Make sure you have equipment that is appropriate for your skill level, be aware of your limits and always leave a trip plan with someone you trust.
