Skiing & Pistes in Banff

Banff skiing comprises three unique areas - Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise, all covered by the aptly named Tri-Area lift pass.

Here you have the endless fun of gladed tree runs, beginner friendly pistes and powder bowls. With the ski area being so vast, it is hard to pick one run for each area, so here are the best mountains for different abilities.

Additional Info

Ski passes

We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. No additional charge!

The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately! You can book these at any time after you've booked.

Ski & equipment hire

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
