STUFF WE GET ASKED

I am an experienced traveler and often find great deals on flights, accommodation etc. Why should I bother with Skican?
We offer a convenient and hassle-free service. Let us do the work for you AND save you money. Our customers tell us time and time again that our ski packages can’t be matched. Our volume purchasing model means exceptional value for the individual skier or group. Plus, ask us what you really want to know about the resort, we can help make sure it’s the right fit for you and your traveling companions. At Skican we like you to use your leisure time for leisure, not for research and comparison shopping. YOUR TRIP, YOUR WAY.  

I would like to join a group trip this season. What do you offer?
You are in luck! Join Skican on a Ski Escape. We will be offering three trips hosted by knowledgeable Skican staff during next season. Leave the planning to us, sign up for the trip and enjoy an unforgettable ski vacation. Last season skiers just like you ventured to Les Arcs, France; Aspen, Colorado; Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta; Panorama with Heli option, BC; Whitewater and Red Mtn, BC; Silver Star, BC (Nordic).  

I have young kids and we are interested in a family vacation during school break. I am tired just thinking about it. Can you make this easy for us?
Absolutely! We know the value of the family ski vacation, the memories that live on and on. As parents and/or members of ski families we understand this unique situation. See our Specials and call us at 1.888.475.4226. We will make your family vacation wishes come true.

 
I have no idea where to ski. How do I choose the right resort? 
Skican has organized thousands of vacations for independent travelers and groups. We will find your ski destination match. We will need an understanding of ski level(s), interest(s), budget, group size, schedule etc. You will be inspired and be packing your bags. If this is your first time considering a ski vacation that involves a plane, welcome! We will suit you up with all the knowledge you need to get you to mountain without a hitch and no butterflies. 

Do most resorts offer child care? 
Yes. Many resorts also offer ski camps and lesson programs that may suit your family’s needs. Ask our agents for more information. 

My travel partner does not ski. He/she would be interested in trying it for a day but what could the rest of the trip look like?
Every resort offers rental and lesson packages for beginners. Also, all of Skican’s resort partners offer fantastic amenities and adventures off the ski hill. From caving to shopping to hiking to snowshoeing and dogsledding – adventures abound for the non-skier or those who don’t wish to ski all day every day. We can help find the right resort and vacation package to accommodate the needs of each traveler in your group. 

Does Skican only offer 5 or 7-day packages?
No, we can build a package to meet your unique vacation needs. Packages typically include lodging, lift passes, airport transfers or rental car. We can book air with any carrier, no problem. Want to combine resorts or go for an extended stay, no problem. Interested in lessons, rentals or something else, just ask. Just give Skican a call at 1.888.475.4226 and we will get you on your way.  

I don't see the resort I wish to visit in your list of offerings?
It is very possible that we can get you to the mountain of your choosing at the lodge of your choice. We often have resorts in our back pocket, just not listed online.  

What is Skican’s cancellation policy?
Your reservation agent will carefully explain the details of your vacation and cancellation details. We promise to be transparent about payment deadlines and options. Please read terms and conditions
