Ultimate Guide: Where to Ski in Edmonton

Ultimate Edmonton Ski Guide

 

With a healthy dose of snow on the ground, it’s officially ski season in Edmonton. Sure, heading to the Rockies may be the preferred location for skiing, but when time’s a constraint, there are some great ski options right here in the city. Plus, with 2020 bringing about a whole new set of challenges that include the limitation of many of our favourite indoor winter activities, you can bet skiing will be extra popular this season. Most locations offer online reservations for lift tickets so be sure to check availability before you go!
