Resort details


Spectacularly set in Canada's original National Park, Banff and its associated ski resorts are primarily summer resorts that luckily happen to have some excellent skiing on their doorsteps. Snow conditions vary from area to area. Sunshine Village prides itself on not requiring artificial snow, with Mt. Norquay having snowmaking on all green and blue slopes. Lake Louise has about 40% of its terrain covered by snowmaking facilities. All in all, lack of snow is rarely a problem in a normal season on a Banff ski holiday. 

The town of Banff is mostly spread along the central thoroughfare of Banff Avenue; with the majority of hotels, apartments, shops, bars and restaurants being on or just off the central stretch. Lake Louise Village - about a 45-minute drive away, is less of a village and more an accumulation of accommodation with some shops. Lake Louise itself, with the imposing Victoria Glacier looming over the lake and famous Chateau Lake Louise, is a couple of miles further up the road.

Lodging in Banff has something for every budget, from the iconic Fairmont Banff Springs to local homely youth hostels and even the luxurious properties aren't outrageous in price in comparison to other resorts. Though Lake Louise and Banff Sunshine, the neighbouring resorts, have slightly more skiable terrain, the town of Banff is more of an all-rounded place to stay with access to good quality restaurants, lively bars and varied accommodation and if you have a car it is easy to drive to the other resorts.
