Banff & Lake Louise
Discover Banff and Lake Louise, the beating heart of the Canadian Rockies.
SkiBig3, located within the protected boundaries of Banff National Park, provides easy access to three authentic ski resorts – Banff Sunshine, The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Mt Norquay and two vibrant ski towns – Banff and Lake Louise. The three resorts boast 8,000 acres of skiing, 2 gondolas, 26 chairlifts and 30 feet of feather-light, dry Canadian Rockies powder annually. UNESCO World Heritage Site, the area is known for its exceptional natural beauty, rare wildlife and abundant land-forms.
Banff Sunshine sits high on the Continental Divide in the heart of Banff National Park just 15 minutes’ drive from the cozy mountain town of Banff. Three sprawling mountains provide breathtaking site lines, uninterrupted by any signs of civilization beyond the resort’s leasehold.
Sunshine’s seven-month season stretches from early November until late May – the longest non-glacial ski season in Canada. Sunshine can receive up to nine metres (30 feet) of snow in a season and the Village’s altitude of 7,200 feet ensures the snow stays light and dry.
The world-renowned resort features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle beginner runs all the way up to extreme big mountain runs. Sunshine’s very own Delirium Dive has been named one of the 10 top off-piste destinations in the world.
Banff Sunshine was awarded “Best View from the Best Off-Piste Run” by Ski Canada magazine.
Lake Louise Ski resort is known for its spectacular scenery and versatile terrain. With over 4,200 acres spread across four mountain faces, Lake Louise is also one of the largest ski resorts in North America.
Just minutes from the village of Lake Louise, the ski area’s exceptional layout allows families and groups of all abilities to ski together with beginner, intermediate and expert runs from every chair. Lake Louise is known for its variety of terrain from gentle slopes and long cruising runs, to glades, chutes and some of the Canadian Rockies most exciting and wide open bowls.
As well as receiving the #1 Ski Resort in Canada at the prestigious 2019 World Ski Awards, Lake Louise has also been named one of the top three freestyle resorts in the world.
When visiting Lake Louise Ski Resort, be sure to take your camera! The spectacular views of mountains, glaciers, lakes and forests are truly unique and befitting of Canada’s first National Park.
Since its opening in 1926, Mt. Norquay Ski Resort continues to be the locals’ gem. Famous for being the training ground of Olympic and World Cup athletes, and with excellent beginner terrain, everyone will love this small, family-friendly resort.
