7 reasons to ski Banff National Park in 2017

Add to my moments

1. Visit three new resorts    

Not only will you discover one new ski area on this trip - you’ll discover three: Mt Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village. The three resorts boast 8,000 acres of skiing, two gondolas, 26 chairlifts and 30 feet of dry Canadian Rockies powder every year! The best part? One tri-area lift ticket will get you into all three resorts. 

2. There is something for everyone  

Such variety of resorts means you’re in for a variety of terrain! From friendly groomers to steep chutes - the three resorts will keep you skiing new runs every day. Advanced skiers will appreciate the unique freeride terrain like Delirium Dive at Sunshine Village and The Back Bowls of The Lake Louise Ski Resort

3. Get more for less   

With a very competitive exchange rate, visitors from the US and UK will notice that their money goes further in Canada! Experience the best that Canada has to offer and keep a few extra bucks in your pocket. 

4. Ski in a UNESCO World Heritage Site  

Trade the condo-lined slopes of many large ski areas for the pristine, untouched wilderness of Banff and Lake Louise. A day at the resort can easily feel like a day in the backcountry as you float through the untouched powder of Banff National Park.

5. Discover the taste of Banff  

Indulge in an exquisitely prepared meal or join the locals on the apres scene - with over 130 bars and restaurants to choose from, there will be something for everyone in you group to enjoy. Discover the taste of Banff and Lake Louise by sampling some locally brewed craft beer or try a exotic cut of game meat.  

Destination Canada

6. It's super easy to get here

Four hours from Dallas. Five hours from NYC. Three hours from LA -  There are more than 80 direct routes into Calgary. Once you land, it’s a stunning 1.5 hour drive on a well maintained and twined road to Banff. Getting to the mountains has never been easier!  

7. Celebrate Canada’s 150

Continue the celebrations with Canada’s 150th Birthday and enjoy free admission to all national parks for 2017. Explore this protected wilderness, along with historical sites, including The Cave and Basin - the birthplace of Canada’s National Park system.
