Joanne Sweeting with Tourism Golden, and Ruth Hamilton with the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce, were at the Golden Airport to greet some tired travellers on Friday July 6.
Parkwest Air Tours has taken nine light aircrafts on a tour of National Parks in Canada and the United States. And they decided to make Golden a stopping point on their way to Banff.
“Everyone says it’s been raining so much, and that we’re here on the best day of the year so far, so we’re really lucky,” said Marissa Fay, tour guide, pilot and co-owner of Parkwest Air Tours.
Most of the pilots were American, but the farthest travellers came all the way from Paraguay.
The group enjoyed some refreshments with Sweeting and Hamilton before carrying on to Lake Louise.
