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

Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 31-Mar-2015)
We are currently seeing differing conditions in Canada, with the west and British Columbia reporting typical spring like conditions with heavier slopes higher up and slushy conditions down towards the resorts. Both regions saw light snowfalls over the weekend but the east still remains colder and cloudier.
In the east, Tremblant (110/190cm) reported frequent flurries of snow over the weekend, with around 2cm falling each day. Great skiing is there to be enjoyed at the moment; on Monday 30th March eight lifts were running as some were closed due to high winds. Fresh pistes are on offer though with varying conditions off the slopes.
In the west Banff/Lake Louise/Sunshine Village (160/160cm) returned to spring conditions after a small amount of snow fell over the weekend. Reports indicated that around 5cm fell but a rise in climate has made the slopes a little heavy and slushy. The visibility was reasonable as the sun was breaking through the weekends cloud cover.
North American Weather Outlook
This week’s forecast looks quite changeable for the west of North America, with bright spells followed by increasing clouds and the occasional drop of snow. The east should remain cloudy for most of the week but could also see light snow fall.
