Mt Norquay is very close to Banff compared to the bigger mountains around the area. I actually really enjoyed this hill. It was not busy when I went and I was able to learn some more snowboarding skills. The runs are not super long and some of the terrain can be challenging. The lodge had great food and a variety...

I took my kids skiing here. Not much can be helped with ice and weather conditions. The beginner area is for those that have never skied before. But the one area that we could ski was to steep for my daughter whom has skied a few times (15) before. The staff working on the hill were helpful, friendly and pleasant.... More

We brought our girls here for their 3rd time on skis and they had a fantastic time. Their confidence grew on the bunny hill with the fantastic magic carpet which is so easy to use, and the chairlifts to green runs were all very easy for them to use. For more advanced skiers, there were lots of blue and black... More

As the smaller resort in the Big 3 it would be too easy to skip it in favour of either Sunshine or Lake Louise... but really don't! On a clear day this place gives you the best view of Banff and the surrounding area. It has some great runs for honing your technique and it's well worth the chairlift ride... More

I was here on vacation with my husband and father. Me and my dad decided to go Tubing at the park, since he is not into skiing. We got there early, and it was a weekday. Waited for a little until the tubing slopes opened, and away we went. It was a really fun time, and my dad had never... More

I don't ski which makes it difficult to find fun activities for myself while the husband is skiing, but tubing is the most fun I had in a really long time. Beautiful scenery and my inner child coming out for an afternoon :)

This skiing resort is perfect for beginners and not too crowded. The slopes are not too steep and have beautiful surroundings. Lovely restaurant cabin and not too expensive .

Not a big mountain and not very easy to get around: to get to the only lift that serves blue trails you need to take another lift first then ski along. Was icy. Not great snow cover on black trails. Several blue trails not groomed and you ski on top of small tries. If you are coming to Banff to... More
