Day 2 – This will be an early wake up since we will need to go get skis for anyone without their own. Breakfast, coffee and hot tea will be available. Lunch items will be provided for you to pack your lunch. After getting set up with skis we will head into Banff national park and begin our first trail. This one will be the shorter of the 3 at 7 miles in and out. Once we are done, we will get back to our place, relax, grab a snack, and make our way over to the Banff Upper hot springs for a nice time in one of the well-known hot springs of Banff. Dinner will be on your own and that gives you some free time to walk around the town of Banff.
Day 3 – this will be another early morning with breakfast, coffee and tea served. Our trail will be slightly longer and we will want to get an early start.
