Skiing in Banff National Park
Skiing in Banff - it's a dream. You might get hooked: Once you've experienced the great spaces and quiet of the Canadian Rockies and zipped through dry champagne powder, you won't want to go home.
Mountain forests under feets of snow, deserted slopes, fantastic snow: Canada travelers eyes get all misty when the talk about their ski vacation in the southwestern province of Alberta. In Banff National Park, three ski regions are located in close proximity to one another, by Canadian standards, that is - Norquay, Lake Louise, and Sunshine Village. The Banff region was declared a national park as early as 1885. Norquay and Sunshine are two ski regions right outside Banff residents' front door, and it's only an hour's drive to Lake Louise.
