The UKs oldest tour operator is heading west. It will offer a service for people to create their own holiday including flights and transfers to the top Canadian resort.

The company specialises in self-drive and accommodation-only packages to the Alps, but now it is branching out.

As part of the packages guest will be able to experience the Whistler Fresh Tracks experience for free.

Fresh Tracks is where guests go up the mountain ahead of the official opening of the lifts to experience the freshly groomed slopes or, hopefully, some untracked powder.

"We have expanded our ski offering further for winter 2014-15 especially to Whistler in Canada, to include 12 different accommodation options, from hotels to luxury apartments, plus direct flights from London Heathrow into Vancouver," said the CEO of Erna Low, Joanna Yellowlees-Bound. 

Erna Low is a tour operator partner of PlanetSKI.

Whistler is the most popular resort in North America with the UK market.

It has a good snow record, English-speaking instructors and a wide selection of accommodation options

Erna Lowe will offer competitive flight rates on either British Airways or Air Canada.

It has some early booking discounts and it claims the prices for a holiday to Whistler can be comparable to the more popular resorts in Europe at peak times.

"We realised that Whistler could provide the answer to many of our client's issues when booking a traditional family ski holiday. The clamp down on children being taken out during school term time means family skiers are restricted to the busy European periods such as half term and Easter," said the managing director of Erna Low, Jane Bolton.

We have reported on the potential attractions of going across the Atlantic for the February half-term next season in this earlier PlanetSKI story.

Whistler has 8000+ acres of terrain on the linked mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb with runs for experts and beginners alike.
