Pet of the Year Competition – August Winner


 Alfie - Posing Pooch
After much deliberation due to the high quality in pet photos and quite frankly with many of them being just too, darn, cute, we have finally chosen a Pet of the Month winner for August!

Augusts’ title goes too……Alfie! Seen above with the wind in his hair, what dog doesn’t enjoy sticking their nose out the car window? Heck, most adults like to! Alfie was welcomed into his family after his previous owners had to give him up. Now, frequently treated to bacon bits and passing his days in the garden with his tennis ball, Alfie is loving life with his new family and brother, Dextor.

Congratulations to Alfie who goes into the running to win the 2 night stay at the end of the year.

Keep on sending in your pet photos for a chance to win a 2 nights stay at the Douglas Fir Resort and Chalets. You can enter as many times as you like, and photo entries can be sent to

August Runners Up!
We would also like to send out a Runner Up Friendly Five (or R.U.F.F. to those of you who aren’t familiar) to Jacie and Chloe.


Jaci - Great Dane and Water Fanatic!

Seen here with here with her life jacket on, something tells us someone told Jacie about the two new Waterslides and large Outdoor Hot Tub coming to the Douglas Fir Resort! She’ll have to wait a little while as the grand opening isn’t till December 17th! But in the mean time, she is recognized for her waterslide dedication. 

Chloe - Maltese and Style Guru

We did have to ask ourselves if Chloe was indeed real, as she seems so very well behaved, not to mention stylish in her cycling goggles! However her owners inform us that Chloe is a frequent traveler with her very own customized bike basket and is no stranger to flying. Congrats to Chloe for being our August Runner Up!

The Douglas Fir is Sprucing Up!


We are very excited to announce the renovations the Douglas Fir Resort is about to undergo this fall!

Famous for having the only waterslides in Banff, we decided that we are in need of a spruce up! So what better way to do it than to bring you two brand new Waterslides! Not only that, but we will also be building a large Outdoor Hot Tub for you to enjoy year round!

This does mean that we will have to close our world famous* waterslides and fitness room between October 25th and December 16th while we make these improvements for you. For any guests staying between these dates look for our special Sprucing Up rate; 25% discount off the rack rate of your room, while still enjoying our Giant Indoor Playzone, Private Guest Pool, Sauna, Private Indoor Guest Hot Tub and Outdoor Barbeques.

Our grand re-opening is scheduled for December 17th, 2011 at 2pm. Don’t forget your towel to be the first one down the slides!

We sincerely appreciate your understanding whilst we undergo this transition.  These amenities will continue to provide you, our guests, with an outstanding holiday experience at Banff’s Finest Family Accommodation.

If you have any questions about our renovations or maybe a query about an existing reservation, contact our friendly Front Desk Agents on our toll free number 1-800-661-9267 or via e-mail to
