If Perth’s heat is already getting to you, why not escape to the snow in Canada’s British Columbia? 

Blackcomb Mountains in Whistler — regarded as a skier’ֹs dream — have broken a snowfall record with 3.84m falling last month. 

And the snowfall hasn’t stopped since. 

Whistler Blackcomb has recorded a total of 6.24m this season. 

If your skiing skills are a little rusty, book into the area’s ski and snowboard school, which offers lessons for people of all ages. 

Whistler is about a two-hour drive from Vancouver on the Sea to Sky Highway, which takes you past waterfalls and mountainous islands before winding through forested canyons heading into the Coast Mountains.
