Ski the World's Finest Slopes in Canada's Banff National Park

The Resorts:

Mt. Norquay: Located just 10 minutes from the town of Banff and is widely considered to be Banff's best family ski resort. Skiers and snowboarders will find terrain for all levels, including spectacularly groomed runs and a terrain park. The ski area has the only night skiing in Banff National Park and a tubing park if you are keen to try a fun and exciting way of cruising down the slopes.

Sunshine Village: Only 20 minutes from the Town of Banff and offers more than 3,300 acres of ski and snowboarding terrain, including the massive 12-acre Rogers Terrain Park. Boasting 100% natural snow from top to bottom, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy incredible panoramic views, excellent groomed runs and powder stashes in the sheltered gullies.

The Lake Louise Ski Area: A quick 45 minutes from the town of Banff, and 5 minutes form the hamlet of Lake Louise. This ski resort spreads over four mountain faces and has views to die for. Warm up with a few groomers on the front side or challenge yourself on the double-black-diamond backside bowls. The unique layout allows families and groups of varying abilities to ski together over 4,500 acres of terrain. Beginner, intermediate, and expert runs are options from the top of nearly every lift.

Need some more inspiration?

Banff and Lake Louise have launched a film series entitled ‘Sculpted in Time’, created by Canadian filmmakers Sherpas Cinema – the series tells stories from the Park's three iconic ski resorts, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Mount Norquay. To view these epic videos please click the links below:

The Wiseman - Mt. Norquay - 'The Wise Man' is the emotive story of Eddie Hunter’s personal connection with Banff National Park and Mt. Norquay, a mountain he has called home his entire life. Born in 1926, the same year Mt. Norquay was established, Eddie has been skiing Banff’s first ski resort for over 80 years. Eddie escorts the viewer through Norquay’s past and present, sharing the impact the mountains have had in his life and which he proudly passes onto his children.

The Artist - Sunshine Village - In The Artist, filmed on location at Sunshine Village, we get a glimpse of the incredible energy of the Canadian Rockies and how the colour, light, and texture of the mountains around Sunshine Village inspire skiers and artists alike. The viewer meets local visual artist Dan Hudson as he ruminates on the very mountains that define his lifestyle, and inspires his artistic expression. The film tracks the artist as he shoots skiers and snowboarders on the mountain and then into his studio as nature becomes muse and inspiration flows both ways, translating to canvas.

The Character - The Lake Louise Ski Resort - Filmed by award winning Sherpas Cinema, The Character enables the viewer to examine how your surroundings can shape character. Talented local skier Eric ‘Hoji’ Hjorleifson guides us through the dramatic landscapes of Lake Louise, and recounts how scenery and environment shape your life and character.
