Travel challenge: Skiing in Canada
Saturday 05 December 2009
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specified holiday. Today: a seven-night skiing holiday in Canada. Prices are for two people travelling together departing at the end of January 2010 and include seven nights' accommodation, flights and transfers.
£1,418: Panorama, British Columbia
Includes Air Canada flights departing Heathrow on 30 December and self-catering accommodation in a Gold studio. "Panorama is a superb resort, renowned for its quality ski-in/ski-out accommodation and its great snow record, so with 50 per cent off the accommodation, and 2-for-1 on transfers, this is a perfect solution for the January blues," says Ski Independence's Philli Swindale.

£1,078: Banff, Alberta
Includes Thomas Cook flights departing Gatwick on 30 December and room only accommodation at the Swiss Village Hotel. "This is an incredible deal to one of the world's most iconic ski destinations, a world class ski resort where you can ski three mountains. The package includes non-stop flights on Thomas Cook's Airbus A330 with luxury leather seats, seatback TVs and free ski carriage, and if you book now there are more savings such as kids ski free," says Canadian Affair's Kathryn Munro.
