The Mountains:

One Destination: Three Exceptional Experiences

Three ski resorts – Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village – and two quaint mountain communities – Banff and Lake Louise – are nestled among 1.6 million acres of unspoiled wilderness that is Banff National Park. Canada’s first National Park, and the third-oldest park in the world, Banff National Park is pristine, rugged and utterly awe-inspiring. Experience towering peaks, glacier-fed lakes and the driest, lightest snow imaginable. But what does it mean for the skier or rider? Imagine views and vistas as far as the eye can see unblemished by development. Imagine peak, after peak, after peak of pristine snow, jagged-edged crags and an unfathomable number of trees. Discover the makings of a fairytale, with castles, châteaux and hamlets nestled amongst the storied peaks of this winter wonderland.

Canada’s treasured Banff National Park is home to these distinctive mountain resorts and combined, these resorts, boast of 8,000 acres of skiing and riding, 2 gondolas, 26 chairlifts, and 30 feet of feather-light, dry Canadian Rockies powder annually, all accessible with one tri-area lift ticket.


Lake Louise

Vertical 3250) Both the terrain and lift system at Lake Louise is unsurpassed. The area is spread over four faces of three distinct mountains, and lifts and lodges are designed according to the European "ski circus" concept of going 'somewhere" as you ski. The ski experience is thus one of constant discovery of new delights, and best of all, because there is at least one easy way down from every chair, the entire huge complex is available to skiers of all abilities.   Lake Louise was Rank # 1 in North America for Scenery  by Ski Magazine  This area just been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Each ride up the lift is a living postcard.       


Sunshine Village

 (Vertical 3514) Sunshine Village is an unparalleled ski destination resort, spread across 3,168 acres and three incredible ski mountains. Receiving more than 33 feet of snow annually. Our new developed 9,200 foot Goat's Eye Mountain offers Canada's finest expert terrain. And, our lifts are the fastest in the world. As a result, you get more for your skiing dollar. Throw in a lot of sunshine and a ski season that extends from early November to late May, and the end result is an experience you'll never forget.          


Mt. Norquay

The Best Kept Secret in the Rockies…awe-inspiring vistas…every angle another postcard in the making. Snowboarder Magazine

Since opening in 1926, Mt. Norquay continues to be the locals’ gem. Famous for being the training ground of Olympic and World Cup athletes, and with excellent beginner terrain, everyone will love this small, family-friendly resort. Just minutes from the Town of Banff, Mt. Norquay offers the only night skiing in Banff-Lake Louise, including a fully lit terrain park, and expert snowmaking on 85% of the terrain. Family-friendly Mt. Norquay offers outstanding conditions for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders. This is the best-kept secret in the Canadian Rockies!
