Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR) has lined up trip incentives for skiers and snowboarders. The specials reward early planners booking this winter’s trips before December 2012. The early booking deals are available for the four RCR locations in Alberta and eastern British Columbia.

Nakiska, Kimberley Alpine Resort, Fernie Alpine Resort, and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort comprise the RCR family. Each of the resorts offers the same early booking deals, such as discounts, free skiing for kids, or free nights tacked on to lodging.

One of the deals offers 10 percent off lodging when you book for two nights. In addition, kids 12 years old and younger can ski free with parents purchasing two-day lift tickets.

A second deal adds on a fifth free night and fifth free day. Those booking four nights of accommodations with four days of lift tickets can add on an additional free night and free day of lift tickets.

Other deals grant a third night of free lodging. Kids under 12 years old can also ski free with this special, provided adults purchase at least a two-day lift ticket.

The deals are available at select participating hotels at each of the RCR resorts. Rates vary by hotel and ski resort.
