Ski the Canadian Rockies

Ski the Canadian Rockies
As many look toward the warmer weather that spring will bring, ski enthusiasts are hitting the slopes and loving every minute of winter.  The Canadian Rockies captivate tourists with their awe-inspiring views and fantastic hotels.  Let's visit some of the Best Hotels in Alberta, Canada in search of the perfect place to find the ultimate black diamond run.  

The Fairmont Banff Springs
Banff is synonymous with chic ski slopes and grand hotels and The Fairmont Banff Springs will not disappoint.  Known as 'The Castle in the Rockies', this majestic resort promises guests comfort, service and luxury.  For over a century this iconic hotel has offered guests a wide variety of activities and amenities.  Spend a day skiing down the snow capped mountains at any one of the three parks nearby, head to Willow Spa and experience of pulsating waterfalls and mineral pools or have the concierge find you the perfect spot to appease your appetite at any of the trendy Banff restaurants.   As if the hotel itself weren't reason enough to stay here, it is nestled in the heart of Banff National Park, which just happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Whether you are looking for prime ski locations or just a relaxing setting to rejuvenate your spirit, the legendary Fairmont Banff Springs can accommodate your desires.

The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge
If you want your ski vacation to be a bit more rustic but still luxurious, The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is the ideal place for you.  Think rustic chic in the center of the UNESCO World Heritage Banff National Park.  Twenty minutes from this beautiful lodge you will discover the Marmot Basin that boasts 1,650 acres of terrain for skiing.   Try out any of the four mountain faces that, regardless of the amazing options for skiing,  are still uncrowded by tourists and locals.  Head back to the resort to find comfort combined with the ultimate in modern conveniences.  Taste the amazing menus created by the hotel's culinary team or book some time in the spa to heal your ski weary muscles.  Warm woods mixed with natural stone and designer decor will all help to ensure your time at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge will refresh and restore.  

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Our last destination is another impressive Fairmont Hotel, located in the lovely Lake Louise area.  Also calling the Banff National Park home, The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is a splendid resort perfectly set next to the beautiful lake with the mountains hugging the shores.  During the winter months you can try out the world-class downhill skiing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, or view the heart-stopping scenery from a helicopter or horse drawn carriage.  The nearby skiing includes the Lake Louise Ski Are or the Sunshine Village and Ski Area, all conveniently located near this pristine hotel.  The on-site spa will treat your mind, body and soul and the restaurants will satisfy your culinary appetite.  The simple yet posh decor  is appealing and only outshone by the resplendent views seen from every corner of this polished resort.  Stay in relaxed comfort fit for a king at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.

The Canadian Rockies are the ideal destination for nature lovers, both in the winter and the summer months.  Head to Alberta to find what a little bit of snow and some cold temperatures can do to this already amazing landscape.  Ski, snowboard and soothe your soul in the breathtakingly beautiful mountains of Canada.
