Springtime in the Rockies
Sad to say, but I've never experienced Springtime in the Rockies, except for the song.
Maybe it's time to go east, middle aged woman, go east!
Through May 31, Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts is offering two special packages. They include:
Savour the Rockies Package - Guests receive a copy of CRMR’s cookbook, Simple Treasures; the company’s signature homemade mustard melons; one night's accommodation and breakfast for two.
Western Canada Special - For the more budget-minded traveler hailing from Alberta and the rest of Western Canada. One night's accommodation at a reduced rate.
Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts includes Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, British Columbia; Deer Lodge in Lake Louise, Alberta; and Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, Alberta.
CRMR also owns these Calgary foodie establishments: Cilantro, Velvet, The Ranche Wine & CheeseBistro, Bin 905 and Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch. It also owns Panino bakery in Canmore.
