spent 10 days there in FEB 06 , from UK it was 9 1/2 hours to Calgary then on to another flight to Kelowna, with 2 kids it was a long haul but well worth it.
I will be back, fantastic for kids loads to do and all very good. Staff very good, all Aussies and all very nice. I stood on top of runs 100 metres wide and looking down a mile and I was alone, perfect. No queues and when there was it was no more than 20 deep, and all nice and friendly. If you want long queues and rude people come to europe. I love USA and Canada...nicest people around.
