Want to know all about the amazing things to see and do in Banff National Park? And get access to the best activities and attractions worth over $600?!
This two-part, interactive program is an entertaining and informative way to make the most of your time in Banff. It helps new residents to Banff discover how they can become knowledgeable ‘locals’ and share the uniqueness of this place with visitors.
You'll learn about Banff’s wildlife, discover Banff’s interesting history, be able to identify local landmarks, become aware of park rules and regulations, learn how to play and stay safe in the park, find out about community resources, and discover all about what you can see and do in Banff National Park.
A FREE one hour course in partnership with BanffLIFE is offered at least twice a month at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies (111 Bear Street).
Completing Part One of the course will give you access to Part Two of the Banff Ambassador program (see below). Note that you must be working in Banff to participate in the program. You do not need to register in advance, but please arrive at least 5 minutes before the session starts.
IMPORTANT: Sessions at the Whyte Museum are intended for participants who are new to Banff. Sessions at the Banff Y Mountain Lodge are intended for returning participants. Participants at either session will receive a complimentary Banff Ambassador/Ski BLLS toque.
Note that if you have attended Part One of the Banff Ambassador program after May 1, 2012 you may complete the knowledge test at the Ski Hub instead of taking the Banff Ambassador course. All participants who pass the knowledge test or Part One of the Banff Ambassador program, and reside in the Bow Valley, may receive the Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine Tri-area season pass at the reduced rate of $1,449 plus GST prior to December 31, 2013.
