BANFF is a Unique Winter Resort!

The town is a mountain resort, amid some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Elk walk along the snow-covered streets as casually as skiers and snowboarders. A train whistle blows in the distance as a reminder of the area's railway roots, while designer shops dot the streetscapes. Lured by the wilderness, the skiing and variety of outdoor activities, people from all over the world are drawn to the Banff National Park area. Virtually every language from German and Japanese, to French and Spanish, can be heard on Banff's bustling main avenue. In Banff, you can experience many restaurants, shops, museums, cultural activities and wilderness adventures.

Additional Resort Information

The Ptarmigan Inn in Banff is surrounded by the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Inn has an impressive, three stories, open beam, atrium lobby complete with bubbling waterfall and stone fishpond! The guestrooms feature wood furnishings and breathtaking mountain views. It is just steps away from downtown shopping and nightlife. Flavorful pasta dishes, stone-hearth oven thin crust pizzas, tantalizing meat and vegetarian entrees and a variety of house made appetizers and delicious desserts await you at The Meatball.

Skiers at the top of any mountain in the Canadian Rockies will be awed by the snow covered peaks and unspoiled wilderness of Banff National Park. A unique preserved and protected World Heritage Site, it is virtually the same as when explorers, mountain climbers and adventurers came to the Rockies more than 100 years ago. Come discover the protected wilderness surrounding Banff and experience your own natural high. One interchangeable lift ticket provides free transfers from the Inn to the slopes! Skiers and snowboarders can choose from three full-service ski areas in Banff and Lake Louise, each with its own distinctive flavor. Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village, and Lake Louise provide more than 7,500 acres and 227 trails for skiers and snowboarders of any ability.

Lake Louise is Canada's largest ski area with over eleven square miles of terrain. "Louise" is a skier friendly mountain with at least one green run serving every lift! Dozens of long cruising runs meander through the trees and over fifteen feet of snow fill the upper bowls with pure Rocky Mountain powder.

Sunshine Village is a unique high alpine ski area reached only by a cable car from the valley below! A vast network of lifts spreading out over open bowls full of powder. Sunshine Village gives skiers access to tree-lined runs through the forest. Skiers of all abilities can enjoy the great snow at Sunshine.

Mt Norquay is a Mountain and ski resort that lies directly Northwest of the town of Banff and is one of the three major ski resorts located in the Banff National Park. The smallest of the Ski Big 3 Banff resorts, Mount Norquay is a local gem in the Canadian Rockies. Do not be fooled by the size of Mount Norquay, for the scenic beauty is that of a picture perfect postcard and is one of the best-kept secrets of the Canadian Rockies. Mt. Norquay offers the only night skiing in Banff-Lake Louise, including a fully lit terrain park, and expert snowmaking on 85% of the terrain. Family-friendly Mt. Norquay offers outstanding conditions for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders.
