Mt Norquay, Banff

Mt Norquay is the closest but smallest resort to Banff. Entirely snow-sure alongisde equally white Sunshine Village and Lake Louise, Mt Norquay offers top to bottom trails only a few minutes from Banff town.

There are 6 ski lifts and 74 trails in total, offering terrain for all standards. Our school groups hop onto a high speed gondola five minutes from town, and enter wide open bowls and tree runs. This resort is ideal for the first two days of a trip, although it does still offer variety for subsequent days if required. The longest run is 5 miles.

Sunshine Village, Banff

Sunshine Village is one of the oldest North American resorts, and now encompassses three mountains. The third mountain, Goat's Eye, was previously only available for heli-skiers but is now fully linked with high speed quads for our school groups to explore.

Most schools opt for this mountain area to spend the majority of their time on skis. Their snow record is so impressive and reliable it is the only resort we know not to invest in snow making. The longest run is 5 miles.

Lake Louise

Lake Louise is the resort where you can ski four different mountains, and is the laregst ski area in Canada. It was also the venue for the Winter Olympics.

For such a vast area it has a relatively modest number of trails (91) as most skiers enjoy the thousands of acres of open glades, chutes and bowls. Literally, plot your own course from A to B.

Schools can choose to be accommodated close by in the town (approximately 15 minutes via free shuttle) or they can commute from Banff. The resort is entirely snow sure, as you'd expect, with the longest run of 5 miles and only closes at the end of May as the bears then start to wake...
