So some details to help others planning. From Sydney ......

Korean Air doing about 21hr flights to Vancouver, for just under $2000. Luggage is 2 X 23kg. Ski bag counted as a checked bag.

Air NZ doing 19hr flights for just over $2000. Luggage is 2 X 23kg. Ski bag counted as a checked bag.

Air Canada doing direct 15hr flights for about $2500. Luggage is 1 X 23kg. Ski bag counted as a checked bag, so you may need to purchase more baggage.

After reading all of the banter on here about SP for so long, we have decided to take the plunge.

4 in our group - Better half and our two eldest kids (both 10yo) - the youngest two kids to stay back in Oz.

Count the Tinkers into the reunion Astro. Dec 23rd to Jan 26th, yep 34 nights, delayed 10th anniversary trip so why the hell not? Stones Throw. Looking forward to seeing everyone, older, wiser (perhaps not) but quite sure it will be epic

7th to 21st January for us. Coast Sundance for now, but looking for a better option....
Have look at Allura direct website, plenty of choice and good pricing. Top of the Mountain have some great properties but you'll pay a little bit more for the service

OK…….I’m in!
Coast Sundance booked 1st - 15th Feb.
Will now try to suck the rest of the family in.
I’ll promise them some good times and new friends.
back me up, people!
:)
Due to your celebrity status. I will make 2 spaces available on the Extreme Team for any of your family members. That should definitely entice them to come........... But they may never return ...... LOL

Fantastic to have you there Normo, for such a large chunk of my stay. VM Team in the morning. Extreme Team in the arvo. Just doesn't get any sweeter. :love::love::love:

I’ve got a “yes“ from my eldest son, Bry. That means his wife Charlotte and my Grandkids Jesse (8) and Lacey (6) will be there too. That should mean my non-skiing +1 Sue will be there too. Numbers building!

Where do you guys go for your flights? I can’t find anything anywhere near that.

We normally book everything ourselves but went through an agent whom got us that price, couldn’t resist as it was significantly cheaper than showing on the AC website at the time - around $300.

Our agent is Judy Cox at MySnow, phone 1300 697 669

Have to book accommodation through them but that was identical price as a quote we got from Top of the Mountain for the same property.

I’m at Sun Peaks with my two boys (16 and 13 by then) from 13 Jan -27 Jan (get it right, @Astro66 !!). Flying AC (yes, I know …. :rolleyes: ) from (Canberra to) Brisbane through to Kelowna, then a few days at Revelstoke before hitting up Sun Peaks once more. Flights currently around $2900 CBA - Kelowna return through Travelplan. Waitlisted for a 1br apartment at Coast Sundance - their queen rooms are just too small and I couldn’t survive another 2 week stay fitting groceries into a bar fridge. Anyone want my photo again?

Extreme team here I come - extreme gazing at scenery, extreme exploration of cinnamon buns, extreme ….

@Telezacski clan in town around this time too, I think.

Enjoy everybody! Looks like a great crew list for 22/23.
@Lady Penelope @Normo you can have my spot on the extreme team but take it easy on @Astro66 .
23/24 will be our next Canada trip with home projects and a new caravan sucking up the funds this year.
Does @Astro66 stop for coffee and cake as often in the Northern Hemisphere as he does in Oz?
