BANFF - The Power of three!
Mount Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Mountain, three iconic mountains that make up the big three of the Banff group.
Whether you like steeps, fast groomers or open powder bowls, with 7,748 acres of terrain to explore you will never get bored of skiing from Banff.
Each of the resorts has a different feel, head to Norquay for fast groomers and off piste faces, Sunshine for steep chutes and mountain top views or Lake Louise for sublime powder bowls.
A different style holiday to the rest of Canada, you get to stay in the town of Banff and enjoy a vast array of restaurants, nightlife, shopping and hot pools while choosing which of the fabulous three resorts to ski each day. Your pass includes public transport to the resorts so there's no need for a car.
The accommodation options are endless and varied from basic hotel style accommodation right through to a mad Hogwarts style castle with the Fairmont Banff Springs. Stay in the town of Banff or in the wilds of Tunnel Mountain, the choice is yours.
