Oct 27, 2016
As if the natural beauty of Banff National Park was not enough, the park also boasts almost 8000 acres of prime fluffy powder. Plenty of steeps, bowls, chutes and terrain parks will keep skiers and boarders happy all day. Experience the spectacular scenery as you schuss down one of three skiing areas. You can get a tri-area lift ticket to explore all that Banff has to offer.
Lake Louise has the progressive Showtime Terrain Park with flat boxes, shotgun rails and wall rides. Runs like Sunny Side are easy and fun. Tight Turn will challenge even the best skiers. The back bowls will offer double-diamond enthusiasts the adrenaline they feed on.
Sunshine Village has great skiing. It also has gondola rides to view the Rockies, the Slush Cup and the new Historical Snowshoe and Fondue Tour. Stop at Java Lift Café for scrumptious crepes and specialty coffee. This is a wonderful way to rev up your energy for more skiing.
In addition to 60 trails, Mt. Norquay also gives her guests a lookout at 2090 meters. See all over beautiful Banff from your high perch. Take a scenic ride up the North American Chair. Enjoy the views. Stop in at Cliff House Bistro for a hot cup of coffee and amazing views of Bow Valley. Order fondues, flatbreads, salads and chubby tacos. Shop for trendy ski apparel, take a snowshoe tour through Stoney Squaw or do some cross-country skiing. You can take a backcountry ski tour or allow Ski Friends to show you around and tell you about the mountain. Be sure to bring a camera for the breathtaking views and wildlife you are sure to see.
