Ski & Snow / Banff and Lake Louise, Canada

Banff hums with a vibrant mix of upscale shops, galleries, restaurants and assorted nightlife options. A serene alternative, winter on Lake Louise sees the creation of an atmospheric Ice Castle built from huge blocks of ice. Don your ice skates to practice your spins and axels against the impressive backdrop of the Victoria Glacier and snow-clad Rocky Mountains. A Tri-Area lift pass covers Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise Ski Resort allowing unlimited exploration. Lake Louise is the largest of the three with over 4,200 acres of skiing for all abilities – a good nursery area and gentle green slopes, long cruising intermediate runs and an irresistible array of steep challenges, moguls and remote off-piste. The smallest area, Mount Norquay, is conveniently located only 5 minutes drive from Banff and offers an excellent variety of skiing, particularly for experts. Sunshine Village is known for its superb all natural snow conditions and 12-acre Rogers Terrain Park.
