All week, we gave you a chance to win a Family Ski Getaway courtesy of the Medicine Hat Hotel & Accommodation Association just for telling us about your most memorable family vacation!

Congratulations to our lucky winner, Danielle Zinger, who shared this story and photo from a family vacation to British Columbia:

Danielle Zinger

Let me tell you a little about my family:) there are 4 of us, myself and my 14 year old son, and my boyfriend of 3 years and his 8 year old daughter. A perfect little prefabricated family!!! :) His daughter is with us on most weekends, weather my Mans at work or not, she is now my family and I am blessed! 

Last year within our trip, we stayed in the Comox Valley with a friend, the most memorable time was the spelunking!!! Never experienced the depths and darkness of a cave before, learning of the formation, minerals and deposits. It was the highlight for all of us! 

It was my sons first time seeing the vast view of the ocean. Blew him away! We visited the Vancouver Aquarium as well, where we enjoyed and learnt of all the animals! The enchanted forest, the mountain rail ride. And much much more! It was a trip none of us will forget!! 

Why I'd like this trip? It's been something we've all wanted to go and try, just don't have the time really. My man works long hours thru the winter, and he takes all he can get.. it's hard on us at home... winning this trip would be a way to get some good FAMILY time in, make some more memories. Show me there's fun things to do in the snow/cold!!! Get me outta this winter funk, and missing the man of my household!

Congratulations to Danielle and her family, who have won a night's stay and complimentary breakfast at Quality Inn Medicine Hat and a set of two adult and two youth lift passes from Hidden Valley Ski Resort in the Cypress Hills!
