Martock, Nova Scotia: Not on the same par as many of the top ski establishments in British Columbia or Alberta, ski-lovers in Atlantic Canada do have a few options, one of which is the Martock Ski centre, a short drive from Halifax, which offers a mix of cross-country and alpine trails.

For the non-skier: Martock’s ‘Park & Pipe’ program is a magnet for anyone into snowboarding. Snow shoeing, biathlons and skate programs are also popular.

For the kids: Bartock offers private lessons for kids to introduce them to skiing or snowboarding.
