For Calgarians, Banff is an easy weekend getaway. For others, it might be a once-in-a-lifetime dream trip. Regardless of where you live, however, it’s easily one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Located just over an hour from Calgary, Banff is a great place to unwind and find adventure. While the summer is the parks busiest time of year due to warm weather and summer holidays, winter is an equally amazing time with far fewer crowds. In fact, winter might be our favourite time to explore the Rocky Mountains as it really feels like a winter wonderland. With snow-covered pine trees surrounded by tall mountains, there’s never a dull moment in Banff National Park. [Read more…] about Five Ways to Enjoy the Winter in Banff National Park

If you haven’t heard yet, my team and I are producing Canada’s Road to 150, which is one of the biggest #Canada150 campaigns of the year. The Road to 150 is a 150-day nationwide multimedia road trip celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday by exploring the uniqueness of this country provincially and collectively while answering the question; What makes Canada special?
We will drive to and through every province and territory (except Nunavut as there are no roads), showcasing Canada’s natural beauty and regional attractions while interviewing Canadians of all cultures and backgrounds. Our aim is to dig deep into what makes Canada such an incredibly inspiring country while showing off the best of Canada’s tourism to Canadians and to the world.

However, after emailing over 200 companies to find a suitable sponsor for the campaign, Best Western decided to support us. Best Western is the perfect sponsor for a campaign like this, as they have hotels all across the country and all across the world. For anyone going on a road trip, they’re conveniently located in almost every province and territory in Canada. Without Best Western, this campaign wouldn’t have happened.
