Three of us ladies shown are going on the Banff trip. If you want to join us, I can get you in the same hotel. We've already booked airfare to Vancouver, seats selling out!
Itinerary as of 5/13:
We fly to Vancouver 7/6, rent a car downtown & drive to Kamloops where we'll stay overnight at the Thompson Hotel. http://thompsonhotel.ca/ It will be a drop dead gorgeous drive thru lakes and river areas.
We'll then drive to Banff & stay at Charleton's Cedar Court for 5 nights which offers free breakfast and has an indoor pool.
7/12 We'll rent a car to return to the airport so share the cost & not take the shuttle. (So airfare is bought on a multicity ticket, SFO - YVR then YVC to SFO.)
I've found they have loft suites that sleep 2, one king bed in loft and sofa bed in living room.
So for 5 nights, the cost is $1133.42 and sharing with two people, cost will only be $567 each. I can possibly get you a roommate.

Also, it stays light until 11 p.m. at night and Banff is a lively town to party in.
There's a lot of hiking trails and of course, http://www.hotsprings.ca/ where it's 95 degrees. Visit a glacier or Lake Louise, ride a bike around town, enjoy the hot springs close by and more.
Airfare runs around $400. You can pay, for example, United by billmelater. I did it for the last trip & it's almost paid off.
You would just pay for the lodging and I can book that. Send $50 deposit to my paypal account with my email [masked].
