Resorts of the Canadian Rockies Announce Early Booking Deals and Anticipate Epic Winter
Old Farmers’ Almanac predicts excellent winter conditions for British Columbia’s interior
Fernie, BC – The Old Farmers’ Almanac winter weather forecast for British Columbia’s interior looks spectacular, and visitors from around the world will be vying to book trips to Canada’s winter playground. With the low Canadian dollar and early booking deals, a “staycation” in Canada makes even more sense these days. Three British Columbia resorts under the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies brand (Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and Kimberley Alpine Resort) are offering early booking savings of up to 45% on the slopes for bookings made before November 30.
Early Booking Special
Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and Kimberley Alpine Resort are located in BC’s interior and offer some of Canada’s best powder and ski-in/ski-out lodging. Their “Stay Early, Save Big” early booking package is offered at all three resorts and offers the third night free plus kids ski for free with packages booked before November 30. See here for more details.
NEW FOR WINTER 2016/2017
Guided Uptracking Tours at Fernie
“Uptracking”, or climbing UP a mountain in skis or on a snowboard, is gaining in popularity and Fernie Alpine Resort is now offering guided uptracking tours for this coming winter season. Uptracking is, in its own way, an art form and sometimes described as a Zen exercise for true lovers of winter sports. www.skifernie.com
New Shuttle to Kicking Horse
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has introduced a new transportation option with the addition of a new shuttle service connecting Calgary International Airport to the resort twice a week, via the Banff Brewster Airport Express.

Backcountry Trips in Kimberley
Kimberley Alpine Resort has joined forces with Boulder Hut Adventures to bring a ski touring experience to the resort.
