More than just skiing

Banff Gondola


If you are the adventurous type, the fun doesn't have to stop at the slopes. From gondola rides to whale watching, scenic seaplane tours to spa days, take a day off from the extreme sports and see what else the mountain sights have to offer.

Canada and the United States boast some of the best snow on the planet, and our luxurious resorts complete the experience. The spectacular and diverse mountains of Canada are best experienced from our fantastic resorts in Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec, all of which are situated right there in the middle of the action and surrounded by the country’s breathtaking scenery.

Head to the Rockies, Banff in particular, and relax at the classic mountain lodge-style Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa. Take full advantage of the fitness centre (complete with steam room and jetted hot pool!) after a tiring day shredding the gnar. Or, for some extra luxury, try our Platinum hotel, Fairmont Banff Springs.

Our USA resorts are scattered around Lake TahoeUtahColoradoVermont and New Hampshire, so you’ll find a selection of all-inclusive skiing holidays to suit your every need. With postcard-worthy views right on your doorstep and some of the best après-ski going, you’ll never want to leave.

Try Tivoli Lodge at one of the world’s best ski resorts, Vail, Colorado, and fall in love with the perfect mix of traditional ski lodge and modern architecture. After a long day on the slopes, relax in a hot tub and admire the mountain vistas.

Fancy yourself as a bit of a skiing or ‘boarding pro? You’re in luck. Our ski resorts feature plenty of challenging runs and a multitude of different piste widths to keep even “serious” skiers satisfied. Take your skills to next level, all while enjoying the fantastic nightlife and exploring the hard-to-believe beauty of the surrounding area.

Of course, skiing and snowboarding holidays are for everyone, not just the pros. Beginners will have everything from professional tuition to equipment hire at your disposal. No need to feel intimidated, our tutors are the best of the best, and they’ll help you find your ski-feet. Families: a variety of runs and good ski schools ensure every family member has a trip they won’t forget.

Where would skiing holidays be without that all-important après-ski? At our all-inclusive resorts, food and drink are in endless supply, with local specialities and skiers’ high-calorie favourites on offer. If you’re less about the partying (or just fancy a relaxing night in amongst all the action), enjoy a spa treatment or two and unwind in the heated pools and hot tubs available at many of our resorts.
