Speeding down a mountain on skis or a snowboard is a kind of freedom like no other.
Feeling the wind in your face while you slide across the snow….
So…where’s all the snow at?
Well if you’re going to hit the slopes in Canada, you’ll wanna know the conditions.
And one of the best ways to figure out the scene on the slopes is by checking the snow cams for each location!
It’s also a good way to get a feel of these resorts if you intend to apply for a job there and spend your spare time enjoying nature.
