 Lift Ticket Options
Cost Added at Registration

 Non-Skier (no lift ticket)
-0-
 
 Adult:  3 days @ Lk Louise/Sunshine + 3 @ Marmot Basin
 $300
 Senior (65+):  3 days @ Lk Louise/ Sunshine + 3 @ Marmot Basin  $225
 Ikon Pass Holder (3 days @ Marmot Basin ONLY)
$45
 

Non-skiers save $300 for the package without a lift ticket.  A modest ($75) discount is offered to 65+ seniors.  Skiers with Full (or Base) Ikon Passes can ski 7(or 5) days at Lake Louise and Sunshine, so would only need the Marmot Basin lift ticket.

Please enter your Ikon Pass number into your profile before registering for the trip.  We must provide your pass number to the resort so that it counts towards our group lift ticket minimum purchase requirements.

Emergency medical, evacuation & repatriation insurance (not cancellation insurance) is included.  Note that this is not cancellation coverage and will not provide any relief if you have to cancel from the trip before it begins, whether for medical or other reasons.  You may upgrade your coverage to include cancellation coverage by clicking on this link.  It will take you to a flyer describing the options available, including a link to the detailed coverage plan.  Note that the "Cancel for Any Reason" (CFAR) option must be purchased within 14 days of paying your initial deposit on the trip.
