Skiing in the Canadian Rockies, part 3.
Banff Mount Norquay, Banff National Park, Alberta.
Mount Norquay and skiing area is located north of Banff 5 km and 128 km (80 miles) west of Calgary.
Banff located in the middle of the Canadian Rockies is a Skiers Paradise destination.
Very close to Banff with night skiing. Serviced by five speedy lifts. Very challenging runs. Many guests ask a typical question..."How were the crowds" and my favored answer: "For Europeans - empty for North Americans moderate"!
This is the only ski resort who beside the full or half day lift ticket charge you per skiing hour. Many cross-country ski trails are very well prepared in the area.
This is the only ski resort located in Banff. Skiing terrain is good for every level of skier. Night skiing is offered here, weather permitting. Daily ski bus service from Banff. For young children ski school offers ski lessons. Here snow making machines support ski slopes with full snow coverage.
The best skiing time from the first days of December to the middle of April.
