BANFF, AB, January 29, 2020 – Though summer may seem forever away, the professional teams at Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ celebrated western Canadian golf properties in Banff, Jasper, and Whistler are forecasting one of their best golf seasons in years.

The winter preparations went very well at Fairmont Banff SpringsFairmont Jasper Park Lodge, and Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Now, the famed resorts are beginning the long, careful process of readying their world-class operations to welcome back eager golf guests as soon as weather permits.
