The Details

Cash Price: $2049 per person based on double occupancy in a standard hotel room

Join Gus and I for an adventurous Canadian Rockies Ski Vacation in Banff, Alberta Canada. Passports are required and must be valid for 6 months after scheduled return date.

Located in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there is no better place to experience Skiing, Snowboarding or just enjoying the beautiful mountain vistas. You may even find ELK walking the streets in Banff checking out their options. Not an uncommon sight.

Canada also has an inadmissible statute if you have a DUI on your criminal record within the past several years.
