When brilliance is your base camp.
During the day, you’re an adventurer learning the ropes in our climbing gym or hitting the trails for a spring hike. Of course there is time for relaxing too, with a visit to the Willow Stream Spa or The Banff Upper Hot Springs followed by a stroll around the Banff townsite.
At night, your base camp explodes into action, as Jazz stars of tomorrow jam with internationally acclaimed mentor artists including program director Vijay Iyer.
Dates and information on Banff Jazz (spring 2014) will be posted in the new year.
