Skiing is absolutely brilliant. I've done it in Norway, New Zealand, Canada and er...Scotland. Canada is by far the best - Lake Louise has some massive runs!

Ben
Its beautiful round there, I haven't been skiing over there but been on a holiday, absolutely fantastic. Had breakfast at the posh Lake Louise hotel!

Thats pretty majorly unlucky!

Where abouts in Canada did you go skiing?
Quebec City in the east. I want to go to Whistler or somewhere in the west, but most of the well known resorts have become overly popular.

We went to Vancouver last April (not to ski though) and practically the whole plane was filled with British skiiers going to Whistlers, as its the last few weeks of the ski seasons.

Yeah - that place is massive!!! When we went there the lake was frozen over and there were ice sculptures on it. We didn't stay there though - for obvious reasons!

I was there in July, so not frozen over but still very cold! We didn't stay there either, but we went there first thing in the morning, so we could travel to Banff the same day, but decided to have breakfast in the hotel - best breakfast i've ever had!!!

If you're round that area go to Sunshine Village. They get tons of snow, if fact they don't have any snow making machinery.

My dad was there over New Year, stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise. The weather was a bit cold on a couple of days -40 C!!.

Were are going to Lake Louise next Wednesday (11th), looks like its going to be good as they have been having 2-9 inches if snow almost every day recently.

I've been skiing a few times (fractured my fibia once) i've also been snowboarding and i tried out snow-blades too. I definitely enjoyed snow-blades the most. I've been to Courchevel, les menuires, la plagne, alpe d'huez and avoriaz (all in france for those not in the know)
