I have an Easter week ski trip planned for Banff this year. Some interest has been expressed and I thought I'd see if any more skiers would be interested in this. The price really can't be beat as you can see below. There are still lots of flights available as of Sunday night this week, including Air Canada flights on Air Miles. My flight to Banff is booked for - March 26, I leave after work to drive to Regina airport and catch the 20:55 flight to Calgary then the shuttle should have me in Banff by 23:30 that night. Any other interested parties can either book flights for themselves or arrange to drive down or perhaps will be in the area for Easter already.. Maybe even see you on my flight!
There are still 20 rooms with doubles available , and some with queen beds for couples to be booked in case more than 2 people show up. So, heres the deal: 6 nights accomodations, (Tuesday to Sunday), ski for 5 days - Wednesday to Sunday and leave for Calgary Airport Easter Monday, April 1.
The cost, based on double occupancy would be $1120, making it $560 at most, and further, the manager may be able to make it a bit cheaper even yet! This includes daily shuttle to the hills, your choice of 3 resorts - our favorites are Sunshine and Lake Louise - and Mount Norquay and also, day trips to Revelstoke can be arranged (but would be extra) and 6 nights accomodations in Banff - where the apres-ski can't be beat! Further, the Bowview lodge is owned by Banff Park Lodge, one of the premier Hotels in Banff - where we can indulge in their indoor swimming pool, 2 hot tubs of varying temperatures, Eucalyptus Steam bath room, and exercise room, all for $560 , based on double occupancy.
I leave for Wpg after work tommorow for 2 days and evenings of meetings, so likely won't have time to be looking at this again till Friday. I will check with the hotel next weekend on room availability, but the clerk tonite informed me that many rooms are still available for the near future, so I am not going to set a deadline just yet, although choice in flights may start to diminish as we approach Easter.
Hope to hear from some of you soon!
