|We stayed in the historic Banff Springs Hotel,|
first opened in 1888.
|View from our room. I had to take two photos and|
splice them together to capture the whole scene.
|Here's the same view, taken when the hotel|
first opened. I copied it from the hotel's website.
|The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas,|
including this gingerbread replica.
|Frozen waterfall behind the hotel.|
|We skied at nearby Sunshine Village|
|This was the coldest I've ever been in my life.|
I'm pretty sure I was shivering in this photo.
I tried skiing several years ago at Snoqualmie Pass, Washington, and managed pretty well. However, I stayed on the beginner slopes. I'm not sure I'm up for a week in serious snow anymore!
