Where's the best place in the world to ski? We asked our readers to share their favourites. Andrew Dickens says nothing compares to Sun Peaks.

Our family of five spent seven fantastic nights at Sun Peaks, British Columbia, Canada.

The experience in Canada is nothing like here in New Zealand.

The whole place is geared up for a total Nordic experience. The village has an amazing European feel, true ski in and ski out facilities, ski valet, onsite hot-pools, dog sleds, terrain and tube parks, through to staff and guides who are attentive and technically savvy.

The snow is incredibly dry and fluffy, with 30cm powder days the norm and the glades give such definition even on cloudy days.

The trail maps are clear and concise and every chairlift gives you the option of green, blue or black runs from top to bottom.

Top tip: Go with a Mountain Host for at least one day - they will take you places you would never know about they find stashes of powder you dream about!

We are season pass holders at Turoa and we love the vibe here in New Zealand, but to be honest there is no comparison.
