Skiers and boarders have more than 8,000 acres of skiable terrain spread over 3 World-Class Ski resorts and accessed with one tri-area lift ticket. With more than 274 named trails, every level of skiing is well represented at Banff’s three resorts. Mt. Norquay, which is located just minutes from the town of Banff, is considered a family-friendly resort and offers weekend night skiing for those that just can get enough time on the slopes. The whole family will love learning about Mt. Norquay’s history as an Olympic and World Cup training ground.
Boasting 4,200 acres of skiable acres, Lake Louise Ski Area takes the cake for “biggest” Banff skiing. With 25 percent beginner terrain and a green run accessible from every chairlift, and 45 percent intermediate terrain and 30 percent expert terrain, the Lake Louise skiing suites every level and type of skier and is ideal for large groups or families. Plus, it’s probably the most conveniently located Banff ski resort because the Village at Lake Louise, which features restaurants and lodging options, is just minutes from the ski area.
Sunshine Village Ski Area, is nestled in Banff National Park and 15 minutes from the town of Banff. Sunshine Village sits higher up than the other two resorts, and allows skiers and boarders the chance to not only ski and ride on the Continental Divide, but also in two Canadian provinces: Alberta and British Columbia. Because of its slightly higher elevation and remote location, Sunshine often gets the most—and fluffiest—snow of all three. While nearly 75 percent of the terrain is designated as beginner or intermediate, Sunshine also boasts some of the area’s best expert and extreme terrain, with two off-piste zones atop the Continental Divide chairlift.
