People often do things at resorts that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley & Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-night stay for two people and two 18-hole rounds of golf for each person at Holiday Mountain, located in La Rivière (up to a $206.88 value, including GST and PST).
Holiday Mountain welcomes travellers to the prairie with seasonal recreation, converting each summer into a golf destination. The resort’s accommodations include A-frame cabins, which contain two double beds and architectural angles ideal for testing the isosceles triangle theorem, as well as rooms at the Mountain Inn with one double or two single beds, subject to availability (up to a $110.88 value). Lodgings come equipped with creature comforts such as Shaw Direct satellite TV and reside within walking distance of all resort facilities. Framed by the Pembina Valley and bordering the Pembina River, the nine-hole, 2,845-yard golf course (a $24 value/person for 18 holes) challenges players with varied terrain dotted with scattered trees, grassy knolls, and drum circles. Hole seven captures views of the entire valley from its elevated tee before descending to the green 151 yards away.
Cart rental is available (an additional $26/18 holes) for those who have yet to master astral projection, and lodgers in the A-frame cabins may reserve a spot for their pets ($20/night; mention when booking). Further amenities include a cocktail lounge in the main chalet and dining at the clubhouse.
Holiday Mountain Resort
Skiers zip down a mountain slope to land at the doorstep of their A-frame cabin. Golfers take a final putt, look out across the Pembina Valley, and retire for a meal at the Day Lodge Chalet. Holiday Mountain Resort doesn't just give vacationers a soft bed to rest in but also gives access to a village of accommodations and on-site activities.
Holiday Mountain's advanced skiing track and beginner hills are in walking range of an inn and 10 chalet-style cabins. The resort also encompasses a nine-hole golf course and a cocktail lounge with a pool table and fireplace for more relaxed entertainment. A rental shop comes to the rescue of visitors who accidentally packed their jet-ski instead of a snowboard.
