Time to Take Advantage of the Incredible Exchange Rate!

Did you know that 95% of our guests visit us from outside of Canada? Amazing, right?
In our 2017 season 75% came from The United States, and 20% came from Europe.

We feel honoured that so many amazing people from around the world choose to visit us year after year, or try us out for the first time. (Did I mention that 75% of our guests in 2017 were return, and 20% of our guests have skied with us over 15 times!)

With so many international guests the markets can play a big part in how much your vacation will cost you in the end. Why not take advantage of the favourable exchange rates and make your final payment while the Mighty Dollar (or Euro) is on your side?

Many of our guests don’t realize that they can make their final payment (or part of their final payment) at any time before the payment due date. If you are interested in making a payment, contact Jessica at 1-800-715-5532 or office@crescentspur.com

No matter where you call home, we are looking forward to welcoming you to our home in 2018!

A look back at our 2017 Season

As the summer days get longer your thoughts may not naturally drift to heliskiing, but we at The Spur find ourselves warmed from the inside with fond memories of our 25th season.

One of many blower days

With the shift in the calendar this year, we were in operation for a total of 13 weeks, and what great weeks they were! Tour 3 didn’t seem the mind the shorter days with the temperatures keeping things frosty out in the mountains, but as the mercury settled into a more reasonable range the snow gods seemed to bless us with a fresh dusting of snow almost every week. This season saw great skiing in all 4 zones in our tenure across the Northern Rockies and Cariboos.

We were fortunate to have some “guide-orgraphers” take some amazing pictures out on the slopes, and as usual our guests did not disappoint with their own photos and videos. You all make this look like fun!

36 of our guests celebrated milestones with the Crescent Spur family this year – 17 people skied with us for their 5th week, 12 people for their 10th week, 5 people for their 15th week and 2 lucky powder pigs celebrated 20 weeks of skiing with Crescent Spur! Fill that in with all of our other returning and new guests and you have one hell of a season.

We hope that everyone who skied with us this season had as much fun as we did out in the mountains, and back in the lodge around the bar. You are a big part of ensuring that we can continue to provide services that are current and top notch. Our guests satisfaction survey, which is e-mailed out following your stay, is a major way that we connect with you, and because of this we offer an incentive to complete it. Three lucky guests have won $000 credit towards their next trip! By random draw the winners this season are: Aaron P (CA), Jack L (MA) and Peter G (SWED). Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated.

We are counting down the days to the start of our 2018 season. General booking for 2019 opens on November 19, 2017. We hope to see you all soon! Have a wonderful summer!

Thanks to all of our wonderful guests including our Canadian friends and those who made the long journey from the Czech Republic, Slovenia Germany, The Netherlands, and Oregon.

March 5-10 Conditions… EPIC!

This week was truly epic with cold temperatures, tons of fresh dry powder, and a extensive tour of our tenure. We skied the classics runs  Notre Dame, Waimea, Cathedral, Plasticos and Belt Grinder in the Dore Wendle area of the Cariboos, and headed to the trees on Friday to ski Highlander, Immortality and Lagavulin among others. In the Rockies we had a fantastic day in Mount Rider on Scotty’s, Haggard Glacier and Primero and hit fantastic tree skiiing in the Morkill including Valentinos, Kickin’ Country, Piano Man and OTK. 

A huge thanks to all who joined us to make this such a fun and memorable week!
