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. We were thinking …an 8,5 hour flight to Edmonton, the gateway to the Rocky Mountains, a rental car to bridge the 4-hour drive to scenic Jasper or – if you would rather leave the driving up to someone else – a shuttle service to the centre of Jasper at a surcharge.
Charming Jasper would be your home-away-from-home for the week to come. 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 € 1049 pp sharing? That is your return flights (2 pieces of luggage), 1 week car rental or shared shuttle transfer, 7 nights hotel and a 6-day ski pass included! What could possible stop you?
The attractive Crimson Hotel is located in the cosy city centre of Jasper, an area dotted with numerous bars and restaurants. This small scale hotel opened its doors at the end of 2014 and receives all guest to its 99 rooms with a courteous smile in line with the warm Canadian hospitality. You can park your rental car at the free parking lot outside. After a day of skiing you can indulge in the hotel's indoor pool and jacuzzi facilities. You reside in a modern standard room equipped with a king size or 2 double beds, TV, microwave, small refrigerator and a coffee / tea maker. The bathroom comes with a shower or bath. The C200 restaurant serves both breakfast and dinner.
