Skiing Anyone? Hire the Right Calgary Ground Transportation

Western Canada hosts some of the most superb ski resorts to be anywhere in the world! Skiing enthusiasts from around the globe come to the area to take in the stunning scenery and exhilarating skiing at Banff, Lake Louise, Nakiska, Kimberly, Kicking horse, Revelstoke, Fernie and other world-class resorts in the Calgary region.

One of the most important considerations when planning a ski trip here is to hire the right Calgary ground transportation. Poor planning in this regard can lead to unexpected hassles and lost time that would be better spent on the slopes.

If you’re planning  your ski vacation getaway in the Calgary area, you’ll need answers to the following questions…

  • What type of vehicle will you need?
  • How far in advance should you make your reservation?
  • What ground transportation provider should you hire?

What type of ground transportation will you need?

The answer to this question will depend on the size of your party and what equipment you need to bring along with you. You’ll obviously need room for skiing equipment and luggage in addition to space for your group of passengers.

Here’s a guideline of which vehicle rental will best suit your purposes:

  • For groups of 6 to 8 passengers, (or up to 14 when equipment is stored in a pull-behind trailer): a mini-bus shuttle is a convenient and comfortable way to reach your destination. The spacious interior allows for freedom of movement for travelers while accommodating your necessary luggage and ski equipment.

  • For groups of 10 to 12 passengers: Consider a vehicle such as the popular Godzilla party bus for ample space to allow for passengers, luggage and equipment. (Not to mention, it’s an unforgettable ride!)

  • For groups of 12 to 16 passengers: a truck limo is ideal. This is a super-sized truck that affords both ample space for passengers in the interior and enclosed rear-end storage for your belongings. This may be considered a truck, but it’s far more opulent than the standard truck model, so you’ll be pampered in luxury for the most heightened ski vacation experience imaginable.

    Here’s an example of a custom Dodge Ram Truck Limo:

  • For groups of 16 to 24 passengers: you’ll definitely want to rent a shuttle bus. A shuttle bus is especially beneficial because of the extra-spacious interior and additional designated storage for luggage and ski equipment.

How far in advance should you make your reservation?

The sooner you plan your ski vacation, the more money you’re likely to save, since air fares and hotels typically offer lower fares for early booking. When it comes to your ground transportation, you’ll want to reserve as early as possibly to ensure availability of your preferred vehicle.

What ground transportation provider should you hire?

Once you’ve decided on a vehicle, make sure you rent your Calgary ground transportation from the best provider in the region. Before reserving your ride, find out how long a prospective rental company has been in business, check for reviews online, and ask questions about the actual vehicle you’ll be renting. For example, many Calgary party bus providers actually offer outdated, shabby or converted school buses, (yes, it’s true!)

Find out ahead of time what you’ll be renting so you won’t be disappointed when your chauffeured ride arrives to pick you up.
