As much as we can all agree that winter’s frigid temps, icy roads and lack of sunlight make us want to stay inside forever, there is one reason we will leave the comfort of our cozy bed during the colder months: to hit the slopes. That’s right, we’re talking skiing and snowboarding.

Imagine breathing in that fresh mountainous air, all while low-key getting a workout in (#score). Going on a little weekend ski getaway is the perf excuse to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Plus, the views of snow-topped trees, rugged mountains and winding rivers from the top of the hill make us actually appreciate the true beauty of winter. (I know, right?)

So throw on a snow-proof winter jacket, grab a set of skis and slalom your way down the best ski hills across Canada, perfect for newbs and pros alike. And don’t forget to book your après-ski bevvies!
