Ski resorts were not established merely for the skiers or those who have the ability to slide on the snowy land usually on the mountain. Well, many people stay in ski resorts to learn how to glide not to practice their skill or simply explore the mountain and hike to reach the summit. Check out the list of best ski resorts for non skiers below.
1. Banff-Lake Louise, Alberta
Beginners would find the ski tracks here are a bit difficult to handle. For the alternatives, the Johnston Canyon Icewalk could be the answer. Hockeying on Lake Louise also sounds great. For music lovers, the Rose & Crown provides the best live music in the area during the winter time.
2. Deer Valley, Utah
