Alberta, Canada

Alberta is home to some of the best that the Canadian Rockies have to offer: awe-inspiring National Parks, stunning snow-capped peaks, glittering lakes and world-class ski resorts, boasting one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Contrast fresh mountain air and exhilarating skiing with the cosiness of Alberta’s exceptional hotels & condos, superb eating and drinking options, and wellness opportunities in abundance.

Make this winter all about bustling Banff, enchanting Lake Louise or unforgettable Jasper – or how about all three on one life-changing trip, taking in the iconic Icefields Parkway along the way?

We offer many styles of carefully selected accommodation, from self-catered condos to boutique and full-service luxury hotels, and with first-hand knowledge of the area, we’ll make sure we find the right resort and the right property for you.

Alberta is perfect for a twin or triple centre ski holiday:

  • Make the most of your Tri-Area lift ticket; spend a few nights in vibrant Banff and then head up to the tranquility of Lake Louise, getting deep into the heart of the Banff National Park.

Take to the road! The stunning Canadian Rockies scenery and wildlife are the hallmarks of the classic Alberta itinerary taking in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.
