Canada: More popular than the US for luxury ski holidays
Britons prefer holidaying at luxury ski resorts in Canada than in the US.
Neil English, writing in the Daily Mail, stated that the success of the Winter Olympics earlier this year enhanced the reputation of Whistler Blackcomb as a ski destination.
He said that even before the event, Britons preferred luxury ski holidays in Canada.
"Canada already attracts more British skiers than the United States - a trend that is likely to continue following the success of last winter's Olympics at Whistler Blackcomb," Mr English noted.
He added that despite the fact that many events had to be rescheduled due to snow storms, the games left people in no doubt that Canada receives plenty of snowfall and that they will not be disappointed should they go on a luxury ski break to the country.
Speaking to the Vancouver Sun recently, Tabetha Boot of Whistler Blackcomb, said that the La Nina weather phenomenon could see an extra 100 cm of snow fall over the resort and in turn lead to a boost in visitor numbers.
