Price shown includes round-trip air & 5-day adult lift ticket.

7 nights lodging (Sat-Sat) with welcome reception, 5-day lift ticket for Banff/Sunshine and Lake Louise, and RT air from Washington to Calgary (details below).

Banff Springs Hotel

Our first three nights will be at the Banff Springs Hotel in Gatehouse Rooms with bedding options of one King/Queen bed or two twin beds. 

Chateau Lake Louise

Our last four nights will be at Chateau Lake Louise in Fairmont Rooms overlooking the chateau grounds

The listed price includes double occupancy in both hotels.  Add $985 for the single supplement if you want a room to yourself (in both hotels).


Here's the schedule that makes the most sense, considering the proximity of the resorts to our hotels:

  • Sunday - Sunshine
  • Monday - Sunshine (or optional day at Kicking Horse)
  • Tuesday - Sunshine (and transfer to Chateau Lake Louise)
  • Wednesday - Lake Louise, or a day off
  • Thursday - Lake Louise
  • Friday - Lake Louise

You could also consider skiing Sunday or Monday at the smaller Norquay resort which is in Banff and covered by our lift ticket.

Lift Tickets; Optional Day at Kicking Horse

The listed price includes a 5-day (adult) lift ticket for Lake Louise and Sunshine.  We're offering a $100 option for a day at Kicking Horse Resort, including the bus and lift ticket (no discount for seniors).

 Banff/Lake Louise Lift Ticket Options 5-Day  6-Day  1-Day 
 Adult $395   $485  $100
 Senior (65+) $305  $370  $80

Non-skiers save $395 from the listed trip price for the package without a lift ticket. 

Ikon Passes:  Skiers with Full (or Base) Ikon Passes can ski 7 (or 5) days at Lake Louise and Sunshine.  Base Pass holders wanting to ski all 6 days can either buy the 1-day ticket, or opt for the day at Kicking Horse.

Trip Insurance:   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 insurance by clicking on the link. It will take you to a flyer describing the options available.

To upgrade to “Cancel for Any Reason” insurance, you must contact Myra Altschuler at within 14 days from the date you write your first deposit check or make your first deposit by credit card.
