Banff Jan. 2014!

Thanks for everybody's help so far!

My flights are booked so no turning back now!

Has anybody got any recommendations, tips, discounts, offers etc. that they could tell me about for my trip?

Right now due to my budget:

I'm looking into staying at the Samesun Hostel Banff.

I'm looking at using Banff Airporter for transfers to and from Calgary.

SkiSafari in look like they can offer me best price for passes/ski shuttle.

Would be great if anybody can suggest better on those, but I still will need to get a boots, board, bindings combo when I get out there...looking to spend up to $350CAD.

+ Insurance co. recommendations?

ARGH! So many elements to plan! haha

Any help would be really appreciated. Unfortunately I am cash strapped after my recent university graduation, but want to do this trip and make it one heck of a gud'n too!

Thanks again y'all,

Hi Aaron. You may find this recent, similar thread helpful: tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g154911-i221-k69031…

Regarding insurance... I assume you are referring to emergency medical coverage (there are many other types of travel insurance). I don't think this is something we can help you with, since my understanding is that this is something you will need to purchase before you leave home. I am not sure how it works in the UK, but if I was offering advice to someone here in Canada, I would suggest shopping around through insurance brokers, online, througn a travel agency, or through a company with which you may already have some sort of medical coverage..
