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.
Fernie Alpine Resort is located in BC's interior and offers some of Canada's best powder and ski-in/ski-out lodging. Their "Stay Early, Save Big" early booking package offers the third night free plus kids ski for free with packages booked before November 30. See here for more details.
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.
