Mount Norquay

Where else can you ski by the hour? Known as the local's favourite, this small and friendly resort is located within minutes from downtown Banff and seen from most prts of the town.  Mt. Norquay has six lifts and 60 runs, to suit all skiing abilities. Experts can whoop it up on the gnarly Lone Pine, while cruisers will love Bruno's Gully. Switch your skis or snowboard for a snow tube and slide the slopes in the tube park.
