      When Snowmass director of skiing Stein Eriksen loaded the first chairlift on December 16, 1967, all eyes were on Snowmass-at-Aspen, then the country’s largest and most complete winter resort. Former Olympic ski racer Bill Janss had spent the previous nine years buying up ranches in the pastoral Brush Creek Valley for the project, spurred by a tip from his friend, a local ski instructor who had searched the state and realized that the slopes of Baldy Mountain were ideal for skiing. Public and private snowcat ski tours confirmed this, generating nationwide buzz for the deep powder and endless vertical.

      Now with over 95% of lodging located ski in/ski out and 3,300 acres of winter adventure, Snowmass offers burly steeps, inviting glades, and endless bumps, jumps, and groomers. You’ll be challenged to ski it all in a week—or a full season. And it's just one of four ski areas included in your lift ticket or pass. Don't forget to visit Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk during your stay...the ski shuttle is free!

      Join the Florida Ski Council on an incredible Canadian adventure! Three ski resorts, two mountain towns and one fabled national park await you. Trip participants will stay in Banff, a 90-minute drive from the Calgary airport, the town situated in the middle of Canada's first national park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This area is known for its exceptional natural beauty and wildlife viewing.

      Ski at Mt Norquay, Banff Sunshine or Lake Louise...your lift ticket covers all three. With almost 8,000 skiable acres combined, there's plenty of terrain for all levels. Free regular shuttle service to all three ski areas is just steps from your hotel's front door.
