Snow, snow and more snow!
Winter Packages with Hostelling International
Experiencing Canada's winter is always something to write home about...and judging by the people who come to Canada for a winter season, there are a lot of emails or Facebook updates home bragging about just how awesome the fresh powder is! Experience the world-class Whistler resort, hang out in the Rockies for a season at Banff or relish the wide-open slopes found on the mountains in Québec.
However, it's not only skiing or snowboarding in Canada, there are many other activities to keep busy. Why not try dog-sledding or climbing the ice-wall at HI-Banff Alpine Centre? Experience a winter festival in Montreal or be in Quebec for the tapping of the maple (when the maple sap starts to flow and harvested at the end of winter). And of course, there's always ice hockey!
If you've ever considered coming to Canada, Vancouver did host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, which was a huge party and lifted the Canadian spirits! Also, HI-Whistler opened in a brand new facility with state of the art amenities. As one of the former buildings for the Olympic athlete's village, our brand new hostel has it all. So... from winter on the slopes to NHL hockey, pack your toque (beanie!) and come see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
