Trip Overview

The trip includes 7 nights of lodging, all transportation to and from Banff (if selected), 5 days lift tickets, Welcome party, hot tub parties, farewell dinner and no limit on the amount of fun you can have.

 

Lodging - Closed

We have reserved 35 Rooms (70 Beds) at the Ptarmigan Inn centrally located in Banff National Park. You will be only steps away from the downtown area where you can enjoy fine dining, lively nightlife and a thriving arts scene. 

 

For full details please see: Ptarmigan Inn


Travel arrangements - The Flights have been purchased and no additional seats are available

We will charter a bus to LAX where we have 40 seats reserved on the same flight so lock in your reservation early. We will fly on West Jet out of LAX direct to Calgary International. Our current Flight Schedule (subject to change) is:

MAR 5th LAX 8:45A.M.   CALGARY 12:50P.M.

MAR 12th CALGARY 7:15P.M.   LAX 9:27P.M

From there we have chartered a bus for the beautiful ride to Banff National Park. If you wish to make you own travel arrangements that is fine however, you still must be registered on the trip to ensure I will have lodging for you.

  

Lift Tickets

If you purchase your lift tickets with the club package you will have access to all three mountains. If you have a Mountain Collective pass or other type of ticket it is up to you to do the math to determine what makes sense for you. This trip was priced with the 5 of 7 day lift ticket however you may choose different option if it works for you.

 

No lifts (if you do not ski or have a Mountain Collective Pass)

4 day lifts

5 day lifts

5 day lifts (Senior Discount available for 5 day only and if 65 or older)

6 day lifts

 

Other Options

Kicking Horse day trip- Kicking Horse is an awesome mostly expert mountain that is about 2 hours drive from Banff. Last time we were in Banff 11 of us loaded into a rental van and had one of the top 5 ski days I have ever experienced. If it is good it is great, if not it is terrible so this will be a “game time decision” on whether we go or not. There are a couple of members from the club that are visiting Revelstoke and Kicking Horse prior to joining us in Banff. We will get the report from them and decide who, if anyone wants to go. Once we have a count we can either rent something or take the shuttle bus. If you might be interested in Kicking Horse you may not want to buy the 6th day lift ticket since it will not be accepted at Kicking Horse.
