Name a Chalet and WIN a Stay!


We’re excited to announce our latest Douglas Fir Resort & Chalets giveaway!

Background – Built in 1946, your Banff hotel was originally known as the Fairholme Bungalows. Featuring just 11 bungalows, you could rent a room for as little as $7.50 per day!

In 1968 the name of the resort changed to Douglas Fir Chalets, named after the stately Douglas fir trees in the area. Eighteen A-frame chalets were built, and the resort was opened for the winter.

The cabins had animal names, for example Chalet Bear, Chalet Eagle, Chalet Cougar, Chalet Raven, Chalet Wolf, Chalet Beaver, Chalet Caribou, Chalet Elk, and Chalet HoHo (a mythological bird from Native American art and traditions). Carvings, which can still be seen today, were made on each of the chalets to represent their animal.

So if you had to name one of our chalets, what would you name it and why? Name it after yourself, your dog, your favourite song or a memory that reminds you of your trip to your Banff hotel, we welcome all name suggestions.

What you win – A one night stay in either our 2 Bedroom or 3 Bedroom A-Frame Chalet named after your entry!
