Trip Details: Canada Wild is Calling! Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to three World Class ski resorts: Banff Sunshine, Lake Louise, and Mt. Norquay. Set within the vast Canadian Rockies, it is known for its scenery, unspoiled wilderness, and natural beauty. Enjoy the driest and lightest snow with terrain to suit every ski level.
The three resorts combined boast nearly 8,000 skiable acres, 2 gondolas, 26 chairlifts, 356 runs, 30 feet of powder annually, 276 elk, 70 grizzly bears, 40 black bears, and 45 wolves! Banff Sunshine sits on the Continental Divide just 15 minutes’ drive from Banff. The three sprawling mountains that make up Sunshine provide 3,300 skiable acres and 137 runs ranging from gentle beginner up to big mountain runs. Sunshine’s Delirium Dive has been named one of the 10 top off-piste destinations in the world. Lake Louise, known for its spectacular scenery and versatile terrain, is a 40 minute shuttle from Banff. Across four mountain faces, Lake Louise provides over 4,200 skiable acres and 145 runs, plus huge back bowls. Lake Louise is also one of the largest ski resorts in North America. Mt. Norquay is just minutes from Banff and offers a terrain park, 190 skiable acres and 60 runs with terrain for all levels. This is the best-kept secret in the Canadian Rockies.
We will be staying at the recently opened 4-star Moose Hotel & Suites, a 1 minute walk from the heart of downtown Banff.
