Tis' Still The Season....

ShareThis ski!  We may be well along the way to spring with temperatures hitting the dizzy heights of plus 4 and the brown grass appearing here and there, but there is still a good 6 weeks of the ski season left to enjoy.  If you and your family are coming to Banff for a getaway make sure you hit the slopes!  So far the last ski of the season stands at April 24th for Norquay, May 2nd for Lake Louise and May 23rd for Sunshine Village.  There will also be lots going on between now and the closing days such as music concerts and the Sunshine Village ‘Slush Cup’, so keep your eyes open for some fun events coming up.

And if, like me, you're a complete novice when it comes to snow sports, or you're looking to get your kids out the house and immerse them in the majestic beauty of the great outdoors, there are some great last minute deals for ski lessons at each hill.  If it's lift tickets you’re after, ask one of our friendly front desk staff as we have discounted tickets to purchase on your arrival to create the perfect custom ski package for you.
If skiing and boarding is not quite your thing, why not head out for a bit of tobogganing!  There are a couple of great spots. Our personal favorite is on the Banff Springs Hotel golf course.   You can have hours of fun here with kids of all ages, with the hill offering a gentle to moderate slope, as well as a maintained ice rink for ice skating, a fire pit and fantastic views.  For something a little closer to home, try the hill out the back of the Douglas Fir!

With warmer temperatures and blue skies why not get out and enjoy the last bit of winter, and share your experiences with us on our Facebook page.
