What are the best ski destinations near Vancouver? Canada’s west coast has some of the world’s best skiing and snowboarding, but finding a mountain to match your budget can be a big challenge during peak season.
To help you plan the perfect ski weekend, HomeToGo has gone off-trail and into the deep powder to bring you a list of the best ski slopes within a day’s drive from downtown Vancouver.
The Vancouver Ski Index ranks the best slopes nearby, based on a few key factors: The price of a lift ticket, equipment rentals, lunch on the slopes, overnight accommodation, and an après ski caesar cocktail. For hardcore ski enthusiasts, we also collected data on the size of each mountain, lift capacity, and average annual snowfall. See below for the full methodology.
