Marble Mountain, Western Newfoundland
Marble Mountain, Western Newfoundland

With an average snowfall of 16 feet in regions of the province, Newfoundland and Labrador is the place for skiing and snowboarding. With pristine powder and exhilarating slopes, Newfoundland and Labrador has something for you – no matter what your skill level. Get a lesson or go as a group. Between the downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country, and backcountry powder, take in the amazing landscape and scenery, the wildlife and, of course, the après ski.

Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding

Marble Mountain

Marble Mountain – Atlantic Canada's premier ski resort – boasts a 1,700-foot vertical drop, 37 runs ranging from novice to expert, 5 lifts, and an average snowfall of 16 feet. At its peak, it's higher than any other ski area in Atlantic Canada. And nearby Corner Brook is the snowiest city in Canada. Here, you can snowboard, telemark, and downhill ski on easy or challenging runs. Keep your adrenaline going on the snowboarding tracks. Then, take it inside the beautiful post-and-beam lodge for live music and local food.

If you're travelling in Eastern Newfoundland, head to White Hills. This snow-clad playground offers everything for the skier or snowboarder, and it's only two hours drive from our capital city, St. John's.

Cross-Country Skiing

There's both great groomed and backcountry skiing – depending on your level of experience and abilities. Take a leisurely cross-country adventure into any of our parks and unmarked wilderness. Gros Morne National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – Terra Nova National Park, Notre Dame Provincial Park and Butter Pot Provincial Park all have a full network of groomed trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

If you're a beginner, the trails around Rocky Harbour in Gros Morne National Park and in the north of the park are perfect - the terrain is relatively gentle, with rolling hills and no steep inclines. For the advanced skier, try the Long Range Mountains or the Tablelands, which is comparable to skiing on glaciers with steep slopes.

Challenge yourself at the Menihek Nordic Ski Club near Labrador City where Canada's cross-country team has practiced their technique. It has almost 40 km of groomed trails, including the 15-km Koch trail system designed by World Cup Champion Bill Koch.

For the ultimate cross-country skiing experience, check out our tour operators in the listing below – they are the key for an amazing winter skiing adventure.
