After enjoying the incredible mountain views you will check into your comfortable hotel where you stay for four nights.

Go hard until your legs burn because we're going to the Sulphur Mountain Hot Springs and treating the sore muscles tonight!

Day 3: Ski Lake Louise and explore Banff
Wake up feeling refreshed and hop aboard as you head 45 minutes North to Lake Louise. Today you get to test your legs on one of the most highly rated ski mountains on the planet. Rip it up through open bowls or crank out turns through endless tree runs. If your legs are still feeling wobbly from Sunshine don't worry, Lake Louise is blessed with an unbelievable view of the lake and glacier. Enjoy some free time exploring the wealth of amenities, such as restaurants, bars, breweries, cafes, spas and shops in Banff tonight.

As a special complimentary treat tonight, enjoy a signature Banff dining experience at the Grizzly House, renowned for its delectable fondue platters, local game steaks and healthy salads.

Day 5: Ski the Rockies
Push yourself today as you spend another amazing day skiing the epic bowls of Sunshine or Lake Louise. Skiing in the Rockies is a life changing experience with the abundant scenery in all directions and peaks that make you feel like an ant.

You will spend 3 days exploring the countless bowls, chutes, headwalls, spines and tree runs at Kicking Horse, where you truly get to test yourself as a skier or boarder. This BC ski resort offers amazing hiking opportunities with your local guide there to show you secret runs from several peaks while feeling like a true side country experience. Although Kicking Horse is home to some of the most challenging runs in North America, it also boasts amazing beginner and non skier options, such as panoramic bowls, sunny peaks and Canada's most elevated dining and après experience at Eagle's Eye Restaurant.

Feast at the best restaurants Golden has to offer, ranging from organic and locally sourced health food to "mountain food" that sticks to your ribs after a big day on the mountain.
