Sunday In My City ~ Our Great Divide Ski & Stay (Lake Louise)
Last weekend, we skied a BIG mountain!
We had heard about a ski & stay package for the Great Divide Lodge (on the British Columbia/Alberta border) and decided to check it out. For $99 per adult, you can room at the Lodge for the night with a lift ticket to Lake Louise Ski Resort included (retail approx: $82.95). Keep in mind this establishment is bare bones and has no mini-fridge or telephone (in room). However, there is a restaurant, Wi-Fi and telephone services in the main lodge. With an amazing view and heaps of snow, the Great Divide Lodge was a fun place to experience. It was also a great deal for those wanting to be first up the hill, or for those wanting to do multiple days of skiing without driving back to the city.
The kids and I had never skied at Lake Louise before. This was our first time! I am sure it won't be our last, as we enjoyed a sunshine filled day of skiing that we were all pleased with. (These little tykes skied a cool 13km for their day! Proud parents!)

And we captured our first video of Xman skiing this year.
Look at him go!
