Where to Go for Yoga and Ski


If you're looking for the answer for where to go this spring for ski, sports, winter fun, history, and beauty, head to the Canadian Rockies to the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.


Only 15 minutes from Banff, Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort is where you can ski in two provinces -- Alberta and British Columbia in one run. Open from November until late May, you'll find the longest non-glacial season in Canada at the village's altitude of 7,082 feet. This season the resort at Sunshine Mountain Lodge is launching a new Yoga and Ski Package launching offering weekend retreats to experience the serenity of an on mountain yoga practice. The new program combines a majestic Rocky Mountain ski experience with the serenity and relaxation of an on-mountain yoga practice. The weekend retreats, slated for spring 2014, will also include a specialized menu featuring healthy, organic fare crafted exclusively by Executive Chef Martin Brenner of the Sunshine Mountain Lodge.


The resort's unique location as the only on-mountain accommodation in Banff National Park provides the perfect backdrop to immerse yourself in a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The retreat will also include a guided mountain tour with a Sunshine Village's certified ski instructor. Yoga and Ski? Yes, it is possible.
