It was cloudy all day yesterday at @MtNorquay until just before we went up the lift to the Cliffhouse Bistro where we roasted s’mores over the fire and the sun peeked out just in time before we headed down again. Fun tidbit: We took our skis off and walked right on the two-person chairlift—I’d never been on a lift sans skis before, and it was very cool. It felt a lot like being in Europe! •••••••••• I’m answering questions on my stories today about planning a winter trip to Banff and Lake Louise. What would you like to know? I’ll also be doing a very in-depth recap on the blog next week, so comment below with anything you want answered in that post! #instameetskibig3
the scenic route ❄️ this was the last pic matty snapped for me before a woman skied into him. he's okay (relatively speaking, knee surgery this week), and we can't wait to return to @monttremblant again to pick up where we left off (snowshoeing! dog sledding!) anyways, this is more info than I'd typically share, but just wanted to explain why we'll be grounded for the next couple of months, and mostly, I wanted to give a shout out to #instameetskibig3! we were headed to banff post tremblant, and the photos are worth following to inspire your own trip to that gorgeous region. so check it out on @travelmindset! ❤️ I still have some more to share from our time in beautiful #tremblant pre-accident, so stay tuned ☺️ in the meantime, this guy can't outrun my hugs and kisses, so there's always a big, bright silver lining. ☃️🥰
Good friends and excessive amounts of selfies take a good ski trip to an EPIC ski trip. After we skied @skilouise yesterday, we swung by @fairmontcll to check out the ice sculptures and drink all the mulled wine. 🍷 #instameetskibig3 ••••••••••• 📷 @scottyvsquared
Having so much fun exploring Banff with @fairmonthotels! Did you know @fairmontbanff is basically a castle? It’s so big I got lost in it earlier and thought I’d have to stay forever 😂 tonight’s our last night sadly so we’re checking out the Bavarian restaurant onsite. It reminds me of my Bavarian grandpa and that makes me happy :) #fairmontmoments 📸: @lunaticatlarge
It is #instameetskibig3 day 3 and while everyone else is skiing @skibig3 mountain 3 (@mtnorquay) Jade and I are exploring the non ski areas! Lake Minnewanka is even prettier in winter I think 🥰 . 📸: @vagabond3

It’s so good to be back snowboarding at my old stomping grounds, places like this call me back time and time again. I had an incredible day up at Sunshine Village with @skibig3 today! Come by the top of Grizzly Gondola at Lake Louise tomorrow at 1:30pm for a few fun chair laps! #instameetskibig3
Hello, glorious snow! It’s my third time in #banff, but my first time skiing here. We’ve got the @skibig3 pass, which gives us access to the area’s three ski resorts. We started our ski weekend at @sunshinevillage, and quickly realized it is the perfect place to ski midweek as we had the slopes up ourselves, with a light dusting of snow as we cruised form the groomers. Tomorrow, we’re off to Lake Louise—again, it will be my third visit there but first time skiing the resort! Send me any favorite runs (or apres loves) if you have them. 🙏🏻 #instameetskibig3
It's well worth getting out of bed to enjoy early morning skiing like this! #skibig3 📸 @pagetwotravel 🏔️ @skilouise Join #instameetskibig3! Today (17th) @sunshinevillage 2pm Base of Teepee Town Tomorrow (18th) @skilouise 1:30pm Top of gondola Saturday (19th) @mtnorquay 2pm Top of North American
Thank God our first flight of the year is still a week away as we been quite under the weather the past 10 days. That said, I am on the mend (can’t say the same for Scott just yet...) and counting down the days until we are back in Banff. We were there this time last year with @canadabydesign, but I have actually never skied in the Canadian Rockies, so tackling the @SkiBig3 resorts will be a first for me! Any must-dos in Banff? Or runs we can’t miss? (We are both firmly blue and some single black diamond skiers, so give us your moderate bests!) 🎿
My first trip of 2019 is ... back to Canada! Exactly a year after Jade and I took our moms across BC and Alberta with @CanadaByDesign, Scott and I will be back with a lot of friends in tow—including @vagabond3 (always), @civilmatador, @walkingontravels, @laurenswells, @ckanani and @lauralawsonvisconti, as well as new pals @calsnape, @tiffpenguin and @goldiehawn_. Want to join us? We are embarking on one epic ski adventure with @skibig3; despite having visited this region of Canada several times now, it will be my first time skiing there. More details available on @travelmindset’s site on how to book this trip (Jan. 16-20). ⛷#InstameetSkiBig3
