Free upgrade to SilverLeaf & GoldLeaf Service

06 May

Rocky Mountain Holidays have just released a free rail upgrade promotion. For a limited time, book a qualifying Rocky Mountaineer holiday package of four nights or more and receive a free rail seat upgrade on select dates in 2013. Space is limited and availability changes daily.

The Rocky Mountaineer train departs from Banff and so can easily be integrated into your Banff National Park vacation plans. This spectacular 2-day rail journey will take you through to Vancouver (with an overnight in Kamloops). It is the only all-day sightseeing train which travels through the Canadian Rockies. There are 3 levels of onboard service available: RedLeaf, SilverLeaf and GoldLeaf.

For more information on this limited time free rail service upgrade promotion, be sure to check out the Rocky Mountaineer deals on RockyMountainHolidays.com. This offer is expected to end by sometime next month (June 2013) and is subject to availability.

All aboard!

Snowfall warning still in effect – Banff National Park

02 Apr

It seems we just keep getting these snowfall warnings this year! Environment Canada once again posted a snowfall warning for Banff National Park and surrounding area with good reason. The snow has been coming down heavily all day today with no end in sight! It’s April 2nd 2011 – where is the spring??! With temperature highs of below zero degrees centigrade today, this new snowfall is not going anyway and as a result, the ski resorts are in incredible shape.

Sunshine Village ski resort, in Banff National Park received 12cm in past 24 hours. That’s 47cm in the past 72 hours and the snow has been coming down hard all day. Can’t wait to see tomorrow’s report!

The highway cameras in Alberta give you a good idea of the current driving conditions in Banff National Park – if you must drive, please drive safe or take one of the ski shuttles instead. The locals who drive these buses know the roads better than anyone!

Here is the current weather conditions for Banff:
