Today was a very strange morning for me. It was early dawn around 6 Am; I open my front door and made my way to my car that I had parked the evening before. In the air is fresh falling snow to add to the overnight white carpet that winters hand laid for me. I was demoralized to see that spring has not come, yet a week has gone by since it scheduled arrival. Walking through the parking lot and I heard a sound that I have not heard in a long time, yes its the bird, this surely is the first sign of spring. So it dawned on me that If we bring home the snowbirds than for sure spring will be here……

For this weeks multi we will fly a, Bring the Snowbirds Home, flight from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto via a stop over in Raleigh Durham NC.

It is mid winter and ski season is in full swing. This week’s event is called GRAND ROCKY MOUNTAINS TOUR better known as American Rockies Tour offering extremely challenging approaches!!!

We pick up at CYYC Calgary International Airport (originally named McCall Field) the hard working Calgary citizens who are just starting their well earned ski vacations away from their offices by flying them to KJAC Jackson Hole Airport, then from KJAC Jackson Hole airport to KASE Aspen–Pitkin County Airport, and then back home from KASE Aspen–Pitkin County to CYYC Calgary at end of their one week Rockies Tour vacation!!

KJAC Jackson Hole Airport has been named third in a survey conducted by PrivateFly.com in 2011 as one of the world's TEN best airport approaches!!!!
