Ultimate Ski Package Features Accommodation, Lift Tickets and Breakfast for an Enticing Offer

Travelers who flock to the slopes instead of the beach will find a warm welcome in a cool place this winter - Canada. As the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, Canada is easily one of the world’s foremost locales for skiing and snowboarding, offering spectacular scenery and a wealth of après ski activities. As an added bonus, US travelers heading north of the border this winter will also benefit from a favorable exchange rate, enabling them to stretch their dollar even further with savings of close to 20%.

Making it easy for travelers to experience the very best of the Great White North this winter is Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and its value-added Ultimate Ski Package. With attractive pricing starting from $239 a night, the Ultimate Ski Package combines nightly accommodation, daily breakfast, and two adult lift tickets per day, and is available throughout the 2008/09 snow season.

Whether it’s enjoying the fresh powdered terrain, the new PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, and ski-in, ski-out access at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Whistler, sipping a mug of hot cocoa at Fairmont Tremblant after a day of skiing Quebec’s majestic Laurentian peaks, or bypassing the lineups to purchase lift tickets at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, the Ultimate Ski Package allows travelers to get the most out of their winter holiday.
