Only 10 minutes from the town of Banff, at Mt Norquay you can make turns while looking over the town and valley. With such quick and easy access, it’s the perfect place for when you can sneak away for a couple hours on the slopes. It’s a great ski hill for families, with diverse terrain for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers and riders, and the very popular Tube Town tubing park. You can also ski when the stars are out, with night skiing and snowboarding on Fridays and Saturdays.
