Banff Resort Info
The town of Banff situated in beautiful Banff national park is a base from which ski holiday makers can ski the Big 3, Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Norquay, all of which are covered under the same lift pass. Norquay, the closest of the three, is best suited to beginners and intermediates, whereas the other two offer more challenging terrain.
Banff ski resort
Banff town offers a wide range of accommodation. There's also a good selection of restaurants and bars, with a lively après ski scene. In winter it can get very cold so the warm selection of bars are very welcome.

Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 24-Apr-2014)
A dusting of snow has fallen this week at the three open Canadian areas we feature in the west; Marmot Basin (136cm), Lake Louise/Sunshine Village (140/224cm) and Whistler (195cm). Whistler may only offer skiing on Blackcomb Mountain at the moment but they have extended the season to 26th May. Further snowfall is forecast over the weekend and the first few days of next week.
This is the last weekend of skiing at Mont Saint-Anne in Quebec, which will close for the season on 27th April.
North American Weather Outlook
It could be a reasonably snowy weekend in Colorado for the last weekend of many resorts’ seasons. 15cm of fresh snow is forecast for Breckenridge over Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th April.
It’s similar in Canada, with colder than average weather expected into the weekend and through next week at Whistler. Blackcomb Mountain remains open until May 26th and this colder and snowier weather should help ensure it’s a great final month.
