Canada is a lovely destination throughout the year, but the country comes into its own during the winter months. Natives learn to cope with the weather from a young age, meaning that nearly everyone participates in some sort of winter sport. Our editors have rounded up the best of the best in a country where knowing how to ski is practically a requirement.

If downhill skiing is your passion, British Columbia, Alberta, and Quebec offer world-class resorts with slopes for skiers of any level. For many, Whistler is the Holy Grail, featuring 8,100 acres of slopes, 16 alpine bowls, and more than 200 marked trails. Fantastic skiing can also be found at Sun Peaks, Lake Louise, Mount Tremblant, Le Massif, Fernie, Martock, and Collingwood.

Stellar cross-country skiing can be found outside of the big cities, as can trails for dog sledding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. If you’re not a snow aficionado, there's still something for you in the winter months. The Quebec Winter Carnival has been a part of the city's cultural calendar since 1894 and features parades, fireworks, and boat races. The Winterlude, held in Ottowa, is centered around the world's longest ice-skating rink. If you're headed to Winnipeg (nicknamed "Winterpeg" by locals), consider timing your visit to coincide with the Festival du Voyageur, which celebrates the age of the fur trade.
