We are now almost fully booked over the New Year 2007/2008 in most of our ski resorts in the Canadian Rockies and Western Canada. Larger resort homes over New Year are therefore very hard to come by!
Due to a last minute cancellation, a 3-bedroom on-mountain resort home has become available for December 28 2007 for 4 nights in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. This is an absolute gem and if you have not already snapped up a place over New Year, snap this one up!
Rate is CDN$695 per night plus applicable taxes (14%). Total rate for a 4 night stay is $3169.
To book this or to check if it is still available, contact rocky-peak Ski Holidays as soon as you can!
Experience Canada’s newest ski resort in a day from Lake Louise and Banff onboard the Kicking Horse Powder Express. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has developed significantly over the last few years and has a lot to offer especially for those looking for something a little more challenging. When you get there, you can catch the main gondola to the top of the mountain. At the very top of the mountain, there is a world class restaurant (The Eagle’s Eye) with impressive panoramic views. This is where the fun begins!
From the top of the mountain you have the greatest vertical in the Rockies to cruise down. Kicking Horse‘s longest run is 10 km (6 miles) and there is a green run all the way down so that the more cautious of you can join in! With plenty of steep and deep, Kicking Horse offers some of the most challenging terrain in the Rockies. You can view the full statistics on Kicking Horse Mountain Resort by visiting a Kicking Horse Mountain Resort statistic summary page (complied by rocky-peak Ski Holidays).
The price of just $90 per adult, and $80 per child/youth including ALL tax is comparable in price to that of a regular day pass in most ski resorts in Western Canada. The Kicking Horse Powder Express will operate 7 days a week from January 6 2008 until one week before the season end. From December 19 to January 6 2008, the Kicking Horse Powder Express will be only operating on Wednesdays and Fridays.
All aboard the Powder Express for Kicking Horse Mountain Resort!
Santa Claus is coming to town!
1) “Light up Canmore” on FRI Nov 23 2007 (tonight) from 6-8pm at the Civic Centre Plaza. There will be hayrides, hot dogs and hot chocolate to celebrate this annual event in Canmore.
2) “Parade of Lights” in Banff on SAT Nov 24 2007 at 7pm. Please note that Calgary has cancelled it’s parade due to construction this year, so the turn-out in Banff is likely to be high.
The “Parade of Lights” in Banff will be preceded by “Christmas in the Rockies” which includes an afternoon of activities including Ginger Bread decorating!
3) Photo opportunities with Santa are from 2 to 6pm on SAT Nov 24 2007 in Banff. Just follow the reindeer tracks or the trail of cookie crumbs to find him!
Good luck with finding him!
The Calgary Flames beat the Minnesota Wild last night in a great NHL Ice Hockey Game. Tours to this Ice Hockey Game were available from Lake Louise, Banff and Canmore.
Ticket prices including transport from Banff and Canmore are $125 for Green seating, $110 for Black seating, and you can pay just $10 more for an enhanced ice hockey tour package! These rates apply to all our NHL Hockey games over the 2007/2008 winter season. For transport from Lake Louise, please inquire as there is a surcharge for pick-up.
What is an "enhanced" ice hockey tour?
The enhanced ice hockey tours include a fanatical hockey guide, a chance to win a prize by guessing the score and a souvenir puck!
Game Times and Tours Pick Up Times
Game times are typically at 7pm but can also be at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, and 7:30pm. The full schedule including game times for the Calgary Flames in the Saddledome can be viewed at our Banff Ice Hockey Tours page. Pick-up times for the ice hockey tours are usually about 2 hours before the game time, so the regular pick-up time in Banff for a 7pm game time would be about 5pm and for Canmore, 5:15pm.
The Vancouver Canucks are taking on the Edmonton Oilers tonight which is set to be a high-paced game. Ice Hockey tickets to this game including transportation from Whistler or Squamish are still available. You can get to Vancouver Canucks games in Vancouver from Whistler and Squamish.

Dog Sledding in the Canadian Rockies!
Banff dog sled tours , Lake Louise dog sled tours , Canmore dog sled tours and Panorama dog sled tours are a must for all dog lovers!
The dogs are passionate about what they do! On the longer tours you can give it a try yourself – make sure you have the anchor ready just in case you need to stop! Guides will assist you to give you a helping hand and you can just sit back and relax in your sleigh as you speed through the winter wonderland. Be sure to take your camera as these dogs like to have their photo taken!
Banff dog sled tours , Lake Louise dog sled tours , Canmore dog sled tours and Panorama dog sled tours have been timed so that you don’t have to take a full day off skiing or you can add another tour such as snowmobiling to maximise your precious ski holiday time in one place. Now there are increased transfers from Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and for 2008, dog sled tours out of Panorama, getting to the dogs has never been easier this winter 2008 ski season!
