Hey Allen, thanks again for that info you sent me. Here's our itinerary:
Arrive in Calgary on 2/29 @ 1:10 pm.
We nailed 3 Ford Escape 4x4 vehicles from Hertz for 8 days at a grand total of $179 each. - Yes total!
Drive to Golden.
I found what looks like a dynamite place: http://golden-bc-guest-house.blogspot.com/
We have the entire place to ourselves for a great price with full breakfast included - cooked by the owners who live next door. Plenty of room for our 7 to 8 guys. (Just booked this last week) We stay there 4 nights with 3 days to ski from base camp Golden.
Ski 3 days at Kicking Horse or possibly just 2 with a day trip to LL or maybe Revelstoke. Although if KHMR is in great shape, we'll probably just ski there.
On day 4 we leave and head for Fernie. Depending on how beat up we get our first 3 days and/or conditions, we may decide to ski Panorama along the way on day 4 and then continue on to Fernie in the evening.
If we need the day to rest we'll just sightsee along the way.
At Fernie we check into the Best Western for 4 nights with 3 days to ski.
Probably ski all 3 at Fernie, but maybe we'll run over to Castle for a day.
Never having been to Fernie, I think we'll probably not want to leave once we get there.
Saturday, March 8th we head back to Calgary for a 2 pm departure.
Right now, I'm spending lots of time at the gym. I'm going to try to be a slightly less fatbastard so I don't get my butt kicked after just day 1!
Be sure to post a trip report for us when you get back. Damn, that Chatter Creek skiing should be phenominal!!
: Have a blast!
