Third Annual Lake Louise Ski & Social Winter Escape

February 28 - March 2

February 28 – March 02, 2024

The winter is approaching quickly and in a few weeks’ time we will celebrate Christmas again. To encourage everyone to move out of your cozy armchair and get to the fresh air of the Rocky Mountains, we would like to remind you of our Third Annual Lake Louise Ski & Social Winter Escape.

The Winter Escape is organized equally for all, skiers and non-skiers, as there are plenty of outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy in the heart of our beautiful Rockies. The available activities, with their links and telephone numbers, are listed below and are intended as suggestions for those who have deep love for the mountains, but not necessarily for downhill skiing. Downhill skiers are responsible for their individual lift tickets and each participant is responsible for his/her own activity booking, as you can do whatever you want, for as long as your heart desires, your stamina endures and your wallet supports.

Each participant is also responsible for his/her own accommodation reservation in the Lake Louise Inn, at the BMWCSA negotiated discounted rate, for the duration of the event plus the additional 3 days, prior and after the scheduled period. The length of staying is totally flexible, what means that our members can stay in the Inn for one night or for the whole period from February 25 to March 05, 2024. Booking Instructions

Please note that the negotiated BMWCSA accommodation rates represent significant discount of up to 40% off the regular published room rates for that period of the winter season.

If you have any questions or issues you can contact Michael Karski at 403-614-3723.

While making a reservation, members should inform the hotel that they are part of BMWCSA team, to receive the discounted club rate. Important note: all hotel reservations must be made prior to February 15, 2024, as after that date the rates will no longer be valid.

All the details about the Winter Escape getting together, driving together, dinning together, etc. will be coming in January, 2024.
