Cheap Outdoor clothing doesn’t mean you aren’t getting the best quality so when you have the best bargains from the website where should you go? Here’s one idea for those seeking an alternative to Europe’s winter adventures, Western Canada. Let’s see what they have to offer.

Obviously skiing is the main thing people are wanting, and Calgary enjoyed a record fall in December 2013 – a massive 49cm, which is a new record, and the surrounding resorts are now ready for an influx of tourists seeking fun in the snow. In Whistler, the new Crystal Ridge Express laps the entire Crystal Zone, bypassing the Excelerator Express Chair and ending at Blackcomb Glacier Road ski-out. It also allows faster access to Horstman Glacier, Blackcomb Glacier and Spanky’s Ladder. At Whistler Mountain’s Harmony Zone, the new Harmony 6 Express chair (part of an £11million refit) boosts uphill skier capacity from 2,400 people per hour to 3,600

Advanced skiers can try Whitewater and Red Mountain in British Columbia’s Kootenay Rockies. Whitewater is up there with the best for its exceptional runs – 88 per cent of the 1,200 acres is advanced terrain. They’re not the easiest resorts to reach but that’s part of the appeal.

Finally, for those who want some chill with their thrills, the Ski Yoga package at Sunshine Village in Banff National Park opens in spring. It combines yoga on the mountain, great skiing and a wellness-inspired organic menu

Looking for something a little different and want to get back to the more rugged, outdoorsy days of backcountry skiing, Skoki Lodge is a national historic site high in the alpine terrain of Banff National Park. Built in 1931, the traditional log cabin was the first commercially operated mountain lodge in North America. Inaccessible by road, visitors must trek three or so hours from Lake Louise to reach the property, which has no hot water, flushable toilets or electricity. Its unique selling point is tradition – guests wash in hot water-filled bowls in their rooms and the 22 occupants share two outdoor ‘privies’ . This charming simplicity drew the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to choose Skoki as their downtime hideaway during their 2011 Canada tour. What Skoki lacks in mod cons, it makes up for in detail – log fires, duck down quilts, epic food (Prince William declared it ‘delicious’ in the guestbook) and a well-stocked library make it the ultimate respite after a hard day’s skiing
