Ski Resorts

Emerald Lift

Brimming with majestic mountain views, crisp air and reliable powder, the Canadian Rockies offer some of North America’s most impressive ski resorts. With day passes around the CDN$100 mark, none are cheap.  In return you get uncrowded slopes that are decidedly empty outside weekends and holidays for most of the season (mid-December to late-May).

March is a prime time to visit as the snow base is reliably deep, fresh snow common and temperatures a little milder.


The resorts of Banff National Park, within easy reach of the town of Banff, offer the best overall experience: the steep and taxing Mount Norquay; the well-rounded but intermediate-friendly, Banff Sunshine and the vast, varied and hugely challenging Lake Louise. All three promote themselves with a common lift-ticket system, and visitors can enjoy Banff's extensive infrastructure and off-season lodging prices.
