Skiing for all abilities in a national park, with staggering scenery and a lively little town.
- The heart of a historic national park, surrounded by the stunning and snow-sure Canadian Rockies.
- Genuine old railway town, with a range of hotels, restaurants and bars along Banff Avenue.
- Easy coach access to two large ski areas in Sunshine and Lake Louise, plus the local Mt Norquay.
No other resort in Western Canada is as easy to access. Banff is just an hour and a half from Calgary Airport. Getting to the skiing is easy - there’s a regular shuttle bus, and you always get a seat. If one bus fills up, another comes in right behind it. It’s like a mini excursion and you’ll often spot elk, bighorn sheep and moose.
The resorts open in November and close in May, so at Christmas or Easter you can expect great snow. Banff is incredible value for money during the low winter season when you can stay in good hotels at bargain prices. Because you have to get the bus to and from the ski resorts the après can be a little quiet. However, Banff bars and pubs are busy in the evening with a great mountain town vibe. There are some great places to eat too, whether you’re after something fancy or just simple Canadian cuisine.
Ski Guiding: Free Mountain Hosts available daily to show you around the mountain (not suitable for beginners). This service is provided by local hosts and not Crystal Staff.
