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 27-Apr-2015)
There is still some great skiing to be found in Alberta at present, with some warm spring sunshine reported on Monday 27th April. Marmot Basin (129cm) caught 8cm of snow over the weekend and is offering some excellent spring riding. Above Banff (169/170cm), both Sunshine Village and Lake Louise remain open, with 19 lifts turning to access some great terrain. The Back Bowls at Lake Louise are in particularly good condition. Expect some snow in the middle part of the week, especially at Marmot Basin where 30cm may fall.
Some decent turns can still be found on the highest slopes of Whistler Mountain at Whistler (178cm). Changeable weather is expected this week, with the potential for some light snowfall later in the week. Blackcomb Mountain is now closed until the summer ski season begins.
All of our other featured resorts are now closed for the season.
North American Weather Outlook
The warm spring sunshine in place over the weekend in western Canada is forecast to give way to colder air on Wednesday. As much as 30cm may fall at Marmot Basin, with around 10cm expected at the Banff resorts. Sadly much of this precipitation is set to fall as rain in Whistler, although the very highest slopes should catch some fresh snow.
The Rockies are forecast a changeable week, with good sunny spells interspersed with some showers. Most of these will fall as rain on all but the very highest slopes.
Over on the east coast, the spring-time warmth is set to continue this week. Some good sunny breaks are forecast but there is also the chance of some heavy rain falling on Friday May 1st, potentially impacting on final weekend operations at several resorts.
