front desk and guest story At Front Desk, your needs are met. Whether it is an extra towel, bathrobe, extra nights stay or a welcoming smile, we are here to make your stay a pleasurable and memorable one. For instance, over the May long weekend we had a family of four arrive to check into a cabin. Our brand new cabins!

According to our first bouncers, the inflatable obsticle course was so awesome that mom and dad were ordered to go in there too (mom is probably still laughing ;). Anyway, check it out this weekend - unlimited up and down, and Mini Golf for only $10 + HST. What is Base Camp?
In true May Long Weekend fashion, the golf courses here at Fairmont will be a hub of activity. Mountainside and Riverside still have a few tee-times left so if you are looking to play golf then we advise you to book a time right away so you don’t get left watching from the gallery!
