    Spring Flings in the Spectacular Pacific Northwest

    Chef Dana Hauser of Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, Vancouver

    It's Saturday, March 2nd, 2013...can spring be far off?  After a record-breaking soggy winter here in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbians are ready for the fresh smell of springtime, accented by gorgeous sun-filled days. 

    This week's radio show has our friends at Fairmont Hotels and Resorts sharing fabulous experiences which might find you exploring the wine region of Seattle, to savouring sumptuous afternoon tea fit for pint-sized kings and queens in Victoria - and an indulgent spa treatment for mom and dad, to shussing down the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb right out the front door of your mountainside chateau in Whistler! 

    Should spring break find you heading to warmer climes, or you're looking for that 'once in a lifetime' Mother's or Father's Day gift, you'll be charmed with Fairmont Afternoon Tea in YVR's post-security lounge and the details of a flight simulator gift package at the airport!

    In downtown Vancouver one might escape the everyday with a night or two in the heart of the city...indulging in palate-pleasing wine and dine experiences, to visiting art galleries, museums and world-class shopping. There are three luxurious Fairmont hotels to choose from...each one lending their own flavour to your exquisite getaway!

    Special thanks to my guests from the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts of the Pacific Northwest and Whistler.  And for their generous giveaway of a two night stay for two at the hotel of your choice!  More details on the contest are here.

    I encourage you to visit each of these hotels' web sites for full details and information on booking an unforgettable getaway with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.  The photos are engaging and will no doubt inspire you to try something that you hadn't considered!

    Enjoy and safe travels; Cheryl

    The Ultimate Ski Getaway with Canada's Top Family Ski Resort!

    What a thrill to have Michael J (Ballingal), Sr. Vice President of award-winning Big White Ski Resort located in the Thompson Okanagan, in the studio with me this week.  Our show airing on Saturday, February 23rd is jam-packed with incredible information on the second most popular ski resort in British Columbia and recently voted one of the TOP 5 Family Resorts in the world!

    Throughout our interview, I was continually impressed with Michael's passion and breadth of knowledge.  As Big White continues to earn prominent awards and accolades, it's clearly obvious this is due to the vision of the owners (The Shumann Family) and Management Team who dedicate themselves to its annual operation. 

    Michael shares his Insider's View of Big White's impact on the ski industry including the growth of the resort since his arrival back in 1985.  Operating from late November through to mid-April, Big White has always devoted its on-mountain operations to ensuring great memories are shared by all the guests who make up family ...from toddlers to teens, and parents to grandparents. Ah, yes, even those who thought they could no longer ski due to worn out knees and such, are finding the thrill of the slopes once again thanks to amazing innovations in equipment design.

    If you love winter and the outstanding experiences and sports that can only be enjoyed when the powder is flying and the slopes are open, this show's for you.  And exciting news; this Spring Break, kids ski and stay for free.  Families receive a complimentary child (16 years and under) lift pass with every adult pass purchased!

    Extra special thanks to Michael for taking time out of his crazy, busy schedule to join me. A member of almost every tourism board in the country including the Canadian Tourism Commission - as well as overseeing the marketing and sales at this fabulous ski resort which British Columbia can proudly call our own - it was so much fun to share time with Michael in the studio.  Can't wait for our second show coming up on March 9th.

    To top it off, Michael has generously donated a two night family ski getaway for Spring Break 2013!  Contest details available here.

    I know once you hear this show, you'll be visiting Big White online or calling toll-free at 1.800.663.2772 to book your Big White Ski holiday right here in Super...Natural, British Columbia!
