    Banff/Lake Louise, Canada

    CLOSED (Registrations no longer accepted)

    February 25 - March 4, 2017


    The Canadian Rockies will blow you away with unmatched scenery. Glacial lakes and tall, jagged peaks create one of the most pristine wilderness settings in North America. The world-class dry Canadian Rockies powder skiing is equally dramatic with steep bowls and gullies, wide-open snowfields and delightful glades. The towns of Banff and Lake Louise offer history and character with world-famous, castle-style hotels and more than 200 restaurants and bars.

    We will spend 4 nights at the Fairmont Banff Springs and 3 nights at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

    Banff Mount Norquay is the closest to the town of Banff with 190 acres of skiing. Don’t let the size fool you, as this area offers a variety of long, groomed cruisers as well as super-steep mogul studded free falls! Sunshine Village, located about 25 minutes from Banff, has 3358 acres full of long cruisers full of natural snow! As most skiing is above 7000 feet, the views are unforgettable, and did we mention no lift lines! Lake Louise, located 10 minutes from the Chateau is the largest at 4200 acres and Canada’s single largest ski resort. Lake Louise has it all from gentle perfectly groomed beginner runs to double black diamonds.

    Located in the heart of Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the world famous Fairmont Banff Springs hotel stands as a landmark in the picturesque alpine town of Banff, Alberta. Canada's"Castle in the Rockies", has been providing legendary hospitality to guests for more than 125 years. Its blend of luxury and seclusion has been an emblem of Rocky Mountain majesty for more than a hundred years.


    A short stroll from the hotel is the charming town of Banff, Alberta. Discover local galleries museums,upscale shopping and restaurants, year-round Banff Lake Louise events, and popular local attractions including the Banff Gondola. Other activities available at these 2 resorts are: fine dining, dog-sledding, first class spas, ice bar, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, ice skating and the mineral rich Upper Hot Springs.

    Surrounded by soaring mountain peaks, the majestic Victoria Glacier and a glistening emerald lake, the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise combines luxurious resort living with the spirit of adventure.

    Come join your fellow Club travelers for a spectacular winter adventure to the legendary Sun Valley Ski area and resort. Sun Valley offers a unique mix of great skiing and a beautiful mountain valley full of dining and shopping opportunities. Come experience the country’s first destination ski lodge as it turns 80 and is re-imagined for a new generation.

    Baldy is the big-time ski mountain in Sun Valley. Boasting perfect-pitch vertical from peak to base, Bald Mountain has no flats, no plateaus and nothing but downhill. And with the barely-there lift lines, there’s plenty of time to make as many turns as your legs will allow, usually under a sun that shines for 80 percent of the year. Baldy features runs ranging from expert to beginner, groomers to slalom challenges. FACTS: Summit elevation: 9,150'; Vertical drop: 3,400'; Lifts: 12; Runs: 100; Skiable area: 2,154 acres.

    Dollar Mountain, home of the world’s very first chairlift, now has 76 trails and a 22-foot super pipe, along with beginner-friendly slopes, five lifts and 628 feet of vertical on a treeless, sun-kissed face. Every snow lover, no matter their skill level, will find something on this mountain that will put a grin on their face and some fresh tracks behind them in the snow. FACTS: Summit elevation: 6,638'; Vertical drop: 628'; Lifts: 6; Runs: 22.

    Combined slope ratings: 36% Easiest; 42% More Difficult; 20% Most Difficult; 2% Expert Only

    Your Club has arranged lodging in both the Historic Sun Valley Main Lodge and the associated condominiums. Guests in the lodge are presented with an entirely new experience with 108 re-appointed and larger guestrooms, a 20,000 square foot destination spa, a world class fitness center and yoga studio, a glass enclosed outdoor pool and pool café, and all new re-imagined and re-appointed restaurants, lounges, lobbies and event space. Sun Valley’s Lodge apartments and standard condos form a convenient horseshoe around the village, putting each one within a leisurely 10-minute stroll from the Lodge. Each condo unit comes with a fully equipped kitchen and spacious living areas, making them a comfortable and easy home away from home.
