Tucked away at the edge of the Rockies near the heart of Banff, the Fairmont Banff Springs is truly a mountain oasis. A short drive or shuttle ride to three world-class ski resorts — Lake Louise, Mt. Norquay and Banff Sunshine — skiers and boarders have easy access to a snow-blanketed universe of options. Leisurely explore the town, or venture into nature on snowshoes, with cross-country skis, on a dog-sled, or by horse-drawn sleigh. However you spend your day, you’ll arrive to a warm welcome, exceptional dining and a relaxing stay in Canada’s castle in the Rockies.


Sprawling across 700 acres of natural playground in Jasper National Park, a village of cedar chalets and extravagantly cozy cabins await—all connected by picturesque paths. Wake up to your lake-side view at Jasper Park Lodge, then head out on snowshoes or cross-country skis. Trek up mountain peaks or through glacier-carved valleys. Explore frozen waterfalls and ice formations in Maligne Canyon or skate on Lake Mildred. At day’s end, you can happily kick-back and stargaze or see the Northern Lights in one of Canada's largest Dark Sky Preserves.


Surrounded by the soaring peaks of the Rockies, looking out over its dazzling gem of a lake, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is a remote retreat like no other. Unwind in old-world elegance, indulge in contemporary cuisine and replenish yourself in every sense. Only a short drive or shuttle ride away, skiers and boarders have a bounty of runs to choose from on the vast terrain of Lake Louise Ski Resort, Mt. Norquay and Banff Sunshine. Other adventurous souls can easily find their winter bliss snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tubing, dog-sledding, or on a horse-drawn sleigh ride. All from one stunning place, uniquely located in the heart of Banff National Park.


Set snugly at the base of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler’s Upper Village, Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a world away from the ordinary. Between the mountains and the village, adventures abound in every direction. Our in-house Experience Guides can help you discover the best snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, skating, tubing, cultural tours and sightseeing around. Skiers and boarders will appreciate our ski-in, ski-out access, with equipment valets who can whisk away your gear so you can ease into your après.
