Charter Trips

The Charter is a week long ski trip we take once or twice during the winter.  We either fly out west in Canada or the U.S., or to Europe. This year we bring you two trips, one to start your season and one to cap it off!

Charter # 1: Banff, Alberta, Canada- January 21-27, 2018

Charter # 2: Les Deux Alpes, France- March 24-April 1, 2018

Ski the Big 3 with the Voyageurs! Banff, Alberta, CANADA

 

Trip dates: January 21- January 27, 2018

Experience Banff with the Voyageurs! On tap is a big town with skiing at your choice of 3 distinctive mountain resorts; Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village. Every day, you choose where to ski and simply hop on the bus. The three resorts boast 8,000 acres of skiing, 2 gondolas, 26 chairlifts and 30 feet of feather-light, dry Canadian Rockies powder annually. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the area is known for its exceptional natural beauty, rare wildlife and abundant land-forms.

After a day playing outside, each night is yours to discover the town. Bundle up warm and head out into the bustling street and decide what to do and where to eat. The local restaurateurs, microbrewers, spirit distillers, hoteliers, lounge and club owners are as varied as the scenery.

We will be staying in the heart of Banff at the Banff Aspen Lodge.
