Banff

Banff is one of the world’s best known ski and snowboard destinations. Banff gives any skier or snowboarder the chance to “Ski The Big 3.”

Ski Sunshine Village Ski Resort, Lake Louise Ski Resort, Mount Norquay and you’ve skied the Big 3.

Banff is home to world-class dining, shopping and allows any skier or snowboarder to soak in an internationally, but Alberta rooted, ski and snowboard culture.

(Don't’ miss a night at the Rose & Crown with live music 363 nights a year.)
