After running a month-long contest, offering entrants the chance to win a 5-star ski holiday to the amazing province of Alberta in Canada, we're delighted to announce that we have selected a winner of our Banff and Lake Louise Competition! Using our uniquely devised 'Ski Banff & Lake Louise Holiday Winner Generator', we selected our lucky victor from the entrants. This involved the following (highly scientific) equation:
  • Start with 20: Ski Independence is now in its 20th season of operation
  • Add on 55 years of in-resort experience from across the whole of the Ski Independence team [caption id="attachment_6323" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Banff and Lake Louise Competition 55 years of in-resort experience![/caption]
  • Multiply this by the number of mountains included on the Tri-Area lift ticketyou guessed it, 3!

  • Multiply by the total number of ski lifts at Sunshine Village, one of Banff's nearby mountains just a 15 minute drive from downtown: 12
  • Multiply once more, this time by 4,200 acres of ski terrain in Lake Louise
  • Take the result and divide by the number of vertical feet in Lake Louise3250ft

  • Multiply by the percentage of advanced terrain in Banff: 25%
  • Divide this by the lodging quality of the prize winner's abode during the 7 night trip: 5-star at both The Fairmont Banff Springs and The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise [caption id="attachment_6442" align="aligncenter" width="491"]The 5-star Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise The 5-star Fairmont Banff Springs[/caption]
