BANFF & LAKE LOUISE

 

Banff & Lake Louise

This world renowned ski area offers uncrowded slopes, abundant snowfall, two vibrant resort towns and three incredible mountains - all within Banff National Park and on one lift pass.

Ski Sunshine Resort with over 3,300 acres of terrain and the novel opportunity to ski or ride in both the province of Alberta and British Columbia on the same run. This area is renowned for receiving the most snow of the three ski areas.

Lake Louise is the largest ski area and also one of the most photographed destinations in the Rockies due to the uniquely beautiful terrain. It’s a 45 minute drive from Banff but is worth it for the vast and varied terrain.

Mt Norquay is often referred to as ‘the local’s mountain’ because of its proximity to the town. While this area may be the smallest it offers terrain for all levels and night skiing, including the only lit terrain park in North America. 

Known for:

  • Nightlife
  • Non-ski activities
  • Scenery

Accommodation

Accommodation options are available in Banff, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. The town of Banff offers good value accommodation in a central location, great if you want to be close to the bars and restaurants.  Sunshine Village is the only ski-in/ski-out accommodation in the area while Lake Louise is more removed, offering secluded luxury hotels and romantic lodges. There is no central village area in lake Louise, therefore guests tend to eat, drink and relax in their hotels.

How to get there

Fly

The closest airport is Calgary. When flying from Australia one stopover is required, the fastest route is to Vancouver (YVR) and then onto Calgary (YYC).  Flight time is approximately 14 hours to Vancouver and 1h 20mins from Vancouver to Calgary. Vancouver makes a great stopover, we love spending a couple of days exploring the city before heading to the slopes.
