Skiing and Snowboarding

Shred powder while overlooking Canada’s only inland ocean. Bound down Nova Scotia’s tallest alpine peak, high above the North Atlantic. Here, mountain meets ocean—literally. Come face to face highland peaks and ocean views at Cape Breton Island’s two downhill ski facilities: Ski Ben Eoin and Ski Cape Smokey. Bring your own gear or pack light and rent on site.

  • Winter Accommodations

    Not even the cold can dull the warmth of our Island. Embrace winter with a snowy farm stay or escape to an authentic Mongolian yurt set in the vast wilderness of the Cabot Trail.

  • Winter Eats

    Cozy up for an après ski ale alongside the Bras d’Or Lake. Defrost over a steaming bowl of fresh chowder. Tuck into a hearty Dutch Pannekoek (pancake) before embarking on a wintery trek across the Cabot Trail. The air may might be chilly but our winter hospitality is warm.

3 Days on the Slopes!

Go on an epic winter adventure this year. Hit the slopes at Ski Ben Eoin and Ski Cape Smokey as you make fun pit stops along the way.
