Howdy from Alberta

It's a treat to find a site dedicated to one of the best ways to speed down a mountain side all the while grinning from ear to ear.

The hubby and I are both keen two plankers and have been for years. A bit spoiled in that we are only a short drive to some of the best skiing/boarding resorts in the Rocky's. We both are hosts at one of the major resorts near us, and thoroughly enjoy meeting and skiing with travellers from all over the planet.

I look forward to spending some time here!

snobeach,

Welcome to Talk Ski you are so lucky to have skiing so close to your door! Why not post up some pictures of your skiing this season?

Michael

Thank you for the welcomes!

Michael, I will definitely post up some pix. We're just starting to hit our real snow season up here so there's no excuses not to find some great skiing!

Hello

It must be great living there We were thinking about going to lake louise, Banff or Jasper for new year. We are a group of 14 from beginner to expert also have 2 children with us 5, 10.

Having never been to Canada and you live there could you recommend a resort.

Thanks Clare

Hi Clare,

From a completely unbiased point of view living as close to the mtns as we do is truly a privilege that we try to take full advantage of.

In answer to your question, either Lake Louise or Sunshine would have more than enough varied terrain to accommodate all in your party, even the wee ones. I do know there are tour companies based out of the UK that work directly with Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and other hotels/resorts that set up entire packages. Those packages often will include skiing at Sunshine, Lake Louise as well as trips to Jasper and throw in snowshoeing, snowmobiling along with a number of other events and outtings.

As a resort host, I've had the pleasure of spending several tours with many folks from the UK. From our perspective, if you've left the tour a little more knowledgable and with a great big smile then we've hopefully done our job.

FYI - I'm not paid by, endorsing or promoting any particular tour company or resort, these are simply some of the companies that are common in our area.

I hope this helps in answering your question.

Thanks,

SB
