Air for Canada trips as of Jan. 10, 2009


Download a printable copy of air for Canada trips here.

Pacific Rim Alliance Ski Club has two snow ski trips going to Canada in 2009. There are still openings on both trips and air has not been cheaper in a long time. And because flying into Canada is an international flight, you get to bring two bags, one of which can be ski equipment (boots, skis, poles), for no additional charge. In addition, the dollar has gotten a bit stronger than the Canadian dollar so if it holds, the cost of the ground portion will decrease.

* All air prices quoted are for round-trip and includes all taxes and fuel charges. Prices listed were found on the airlines web site on January 10, 2009.

You need to get your own air and then send Pacific Rim a $200 deposit. Final payments will be due soon. We are in the process of finalizing the costs and should have them in a week.
