Torchlight Dinner & Ski Events

The Torchlight Dinner & Ski events are the ultimate way for your group to wrap up a wonderful day on the slopes, or the perfect escape to the mountains after a work week.

Experience the mountain from a whole new perspective as you explore the hill after hours by torchlight. The excitement begins at our mid mountain lodge, Whitehorn Lodge, where you will enjoy après drinks, appetizers and live music in a majestic setting. Following après, you will enjoy first tracks down a freshly groomed run with our professional staff as your escorts. Head to the Sitzmark Lounge where a smorgasbord of food and entertainment awaits you. To make the most of your experience, why not take advantage of our optional bus service back to your Lake Louise or Banff Hotel.

Note: You must ski or snowboard to participate in the après at the mid-mountain lodge. We do offer a dinner and dance only option in the Sitzmark Lounge, where you can watch the rest of the group parade down the slopes at dusk.
