Your Private Jet… Your Private Lift to the Summit.
by Adriana Bernal
April is here. It’s safe to say that most of us are counting the days for the remaining snow on the ground to thaw, for colourful flowers to bloom and for those warm long summer days to get here fast… But, before fast-forwarding to Summer… why not take the time to enjoy all things Spring?
This season in particular is a great time to enjoy one of Canada’s favourite past times: skiing. Mild temperatures and longer days make it the perfect time to ski with the entire family.
Fractional private jet ownership helps you make the most out of the beautiful Spring-skiing season by shortening your travel time to your favourite ski destination significantly. Think of your jet as… your private lift to the summit!
With access to hundreds of airports across British Columbia and Alberta, your preferred skiing destinations in the Canadian Rockies are just a short flight away! World-renowned resorts have extended their skiing dates which means you still have time to enjoy great Spring-skiing conditions at your favourite resort.
In addition to access to secondary British Columbia airports such as Kamloops and Kelowna, the jets in the AirSprint fleet are also able to fly into smaller regional airports such as Fairmont Hot Springs.

Did you know that from Edmonton, you are only a short 43-minute flight away from Fairmont Hot Springs aboard the Legacy 450? From there, you are only a 40 minute away drive from Panorama Mountain Resort! Just imagine all the runs you’ll be able to fit in the 6 hours it would normally take you to drive there.
Ski resorts across the region also have plenty of fun Easter activities that will keep everyone entertained. You could spend an unforgettable Easter making the most out of the last days of Spring-skiing with your loved ones.
From Vancouver, you are a short 45-minute flight away from Kamloops. From there, Sun Peaks Resort, Canada’s second largest ski area, is just a 48-minute drive. If you were to drive from Vancouver, it would take you 5 more hours to get there, and that is if there are no road closures due to weather.
When the skiing day is done, you don’t need to worry about driving. Take the time to unwind and relax as you make your way back home in the comfort of your private jet.
East Coast Adventures
Across Eastern Canada, your private jet can also provide easy – and direct – access to exclusive ski resorts such as Mont Tremblant, Quebec. Founded in 1939, Tremblant was the first ski resort to pen in Canada and has been become the largest and most varied skiable terrain in Eastern North America. While the resort is a short 1-hour drive from Montréal, your private jet can provide convenient access into Mont-Tremblant International Airport (La Macaza) from anywhere in North America.
Flight times to Mont Tremblant range from 25 minutes (from Montreal or Ottawa) to a little over an hour from either Toronto or New York. Keep in mind that though the area is best know as a ski destination, Mont-Tremblant National Park also has Lake Tremblant which is perfect for refreshing in the Summer months, great mountain-bike trails and two stunning golf courses! Fun adventures year-round!
Blue Mountain Ski Resort in neighboring Ontario, just northwest of Collingwood is the third-busiest resort in all of Canada after Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia and Mont Tremblant in Quebec. With 42 runs, 16 charilifts and 3 freestyle terrains, it is one of the largest resorts in Ontario. Private jet ownership provides convenient access into Lake Simcoe Regional Airport which is only an hour drive to the resort. If the weather is right, you could land directly into Collingwood’s Regional Airport – which is just 20 minutes away from the resort!
Whether you can’t wait to make the most out of what’s left of the 2018-19 skiing season, simply can’t wait to travel to your favourite tropical Easter destination with your loved ones, or are already planning your Summer adventures, AirSprint’s fractional private jet ownership programs are there take you to your favourite destinations.
You will be there in a fraction of the time it would take you if you were flying commercial and, at a fraction of the cost of charter rates and, without any of the hassle of whole-aircraft ownership. Your possibilities are endless when you own a private jet.
