Alberta’s Canadian Rockies

Lake Louise Ski Resort is constantly rated as one of the more gorgeous ski and snowboard resorts, with views that will leave you in awe. Sunshine Village Ski Resort allows anyone to “ski and sleep in a snow globe” with its unique slopeside accommodations. Over at Mount Norquay, you can ski by the hour, so you don't miss out on any of Banff’s shopping, spa and internationally known dining options.

Let’s not forget all the other ski, snowboard and winter communities home to perfect powder conditions, including Jasper (Marmot Basin), Canmore (Nakiska), Pincher Creek (Castle Mountain Ski Resort).
