Trip Highlights

M.A. and Phil are together again to lead you on this fun-packed week of TBSSB and FSC activities. Combine this with three (3) mountains of over 7700 acres of skiing on one (1) Lift Ticket for all skiing/riding abilities and two (2) luxurious Fairmont hotels, and you're in for a REAL TREAT.

We fly into Calgary, and our trip begins with a 4-night stay at the opulent Banff Springs Hotel (BSH), often called Canada's "Castle in the Rockies." This one of a kind hotel offers stunning vistas, classic cuisine, and a world class spa, just to mention a few amenities. This historic grand hotel is the perfect setting for our FSC Monday night dinner party with "Vintage Hollywood" as the costume theme. This, combined with world class skiing, and your adventure will be truly a "bucket-list experience." A short stroll from the hotel is the charming town of Banff, Alberta. Discover local galleries and museums, upscale shopping and restaurants, year-round Banff Lake Louise events, and popular local attractions including the Banff Gondola and the mineral-rich Banff Upper Hot Springs.

The second part of our trip will be three (3) nights at the famous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise (CLL). Surrounded by soaring mountain peaks and the majestic Victoria Glacier, the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel is located in Alberta's Banff National Park and combines luxurious resort living with the spirit of adventure.

In addition to the FSC planned activities during this ski trip of two dinners, a mountain lunch, and the FSC Florida Cup racing between the competing ski clubs, our TBSSB club will also host a couple of après ski socials and our Farewell Dinner. That's three (3) dinners included in the trip pricing and a lunch! Your world class skiing includes your choice of 3 mountains - all on one (1) lift ticket which is heavily FSC discounted for this group trip!!!
