Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Imagine floating on top of a cappuccino. That’s kind of what it’s like to ski or board the legendary, airy powder in the Canadian Rockies. • Good to know: You’re spoiled for choice with ski resorts in Alberta. Wide open runs and uncrowded ski lifts may be so exciting you'll forget you're on the world's best dry and powdery snow. • Try it: Leave the resorts behind and book a backcountry trip. The pure white slopes are just begging for your attention. • Level up: Take a helicopter with some pals and cut into that untouched alpine marshmallow fluff. Make it a multi-day heli-trip with a stay in a mountainside lodge.

Mt Norquay, Banff

Banff, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

From the legendary ski racers that have claimed their glory on Norquay’s slopes since the 1930s, to beginners clipping on skis or a board for the very first time, Norquay is for everyone with over 60 runs to choose from. The fun does not stop when the sun goes down. Norquay offers the only night skiing in the Alberta Rockies. On Friday and Saturday nights the Cascade chair is fully lit, including the entire terrain and tube parks. Banff National Park’s deep-rooted ski culture started at Mt Norquay. Norquay is also home to Alberta’s largest tube park. Just take a seat on a purpose designed inflatable tube, hold onto the handles and get sliding! Summer months offer opportunities to climb, explore and relax. Norquay has maintained its place as the locals’ hill for over nine decades, it’s Banff’s backyard – all while hosting skiers, riders and sightseers from all corners of the globe. Norquay is a Banff classic!
