It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year: Skiing Time!

Hockey is the national sport of Canada, no doubt about it. Curling and ice-skating are two other disciplines mostly practiced during winter. But if we have to think of one single winter sport, it has to be skiing.

Lots of people wait for months to be able to dust off the skis and get ready for a day of white snow and high mountains. For them, the skis are a better option than grabbing skates or the hockey stick every winter. If you are one of those people, this article is for you.

We have selected the best and most famous routes to get you to the ski resort and be able to enjoy your favorite winter sport.
