Skiing in Canada is great for beginners

Top 10 ski resorts in Canada for beginners

Although Canada's ski fields are a magnet for the world's top skiers and snowboarders, there are plenty of good options for those who lack confidence on the slopes. The good thing about skiing in Canada is also surprisingly affordable, especially in spring, when the snow is amazing and there are plenty of bargains.

Here are our top ten ski fields beginners will love.  

1-Mont Tremblant, Quebec

More than a dash of French flair fills the air at Mont Tremblant, which celebrates its 75th birthday this year. One of the benefits of choosing this ski resort is it's near enough to Montreal to visit as a day trip. In winter, the colourful village looks like a page out of a storybook. There are plenty of green runs and easy slopes to learn one.

2-Mont Sainte Anne, Quebec

30 minutes from Quebec City, Mont St Anne has 69 trails and a large beginner's zone. Other activities include snowshoeing, dogsledding and tubing. There's also a ski museum and the ski resort is close to Quebec City, so there are plenty of city diversions. A fun time to visit is during the Quebec Winter Carnival, when the place is abuzz with festivities. 

3-Silver Star, British Columbia

This ski resort near Vernon in British Columbia is a star when it comes to a family holiday. Silver Star's village centre has a cheerful 19th-century mining town theme that looks like a page from a children's picture book. A high snowfall makes it easy for the resort's management to organise a host of winter activities and there is plenty on the programme for families including family snow sports clinics, races and relays.
