Experience blizzards of Wow!

Has skiing in the legendary Canadian Rocky Mountains been on your travel wish list forever and a day? Why wait any longer? Read on what Connections has in store for you on this City & Ski package. We were thinking …an 8,5 hour flight to Edmonton where you stay 2 nights and a rental car to bridge the 4-hour drive to scenic Jasper.

Charming Jasper would be your home-away-from-home for the week to come. The Marmot Basin ski station in a mere 20 minutes by ski shuttle and offers 100 kilometres of groomed trails and dozens of off-piste trails as well. Spectacular descents on the Canadian dry powder snow of the Rocky Mountains are an absolute guarantee. In the evening you may want to unwind at the wellness facilities of your hotel before heading into town. The Canadian cuisine and local breweries take après-ski sensations to new heights! Feel like a change in scenery or action? Why not give dog sledding, hiking the frozen Maligne Canyon or a local wildlife safari a go?

All the very best is still to come. Can you believe all that is within your reach for a mere € 899 pp sharing? That is your return flights (1 piece of luggage + ski equipment), 1 week car rental or shared shuttle transfer, 7 nights hotel and a 6-day ski pass included! What could possible stop you?
