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 20-Apr-2015)
Most resorts across Canada are now closed for the winter season, however some good skiing can still be found at those still open.
Whistler (182cm) is the only one of our featured British Columbian resorts to still be open. There is still some good skiing in the upper bowls and on the groomed slopes above mid-mountain, although Blackcomb Mountain has now closed for the winter (but will reopen again for summer skiing on June 20th).
The skiing in Alberta remains excellent at both Marmot Basin (134cm) and at the Banff (183/185cm) resorts, however Mt Norquay at Banff closed for the season on Sunday. With warm spring weather and some good sunny spells in the forecast, an excellent final couple of weeks of skiing can be expected.
Over on the east coast, Tremblant is now closed for the season after a great closing weekend. Mont Sainte-Anne (20/50cm) is closed during the week but is set to open for the final days riding of the season on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April.
All of our other featured resorts are now closed for the season.
North American Weather Outlook
Mostly sunny and very mild weather is forecast for western Canada this week, with mid-mountain temperatures well into double figures in British Columbia and as high as +8C in Alberta. Some clouds may bubble up during the day, leading to the possibility of a few light rain showers in the afternoon.
Expect a week of unsettled weather in the Rocky Mountains of the USA, with rain/snow likely this week. Some potentially heavy falls are expected on Thursday/Friday, especially in Colorado, where up to 40cm of powder could fall at some resorts – particularly on the upper slopes.
Mild and damp weather is predicted for the eastern states of the USA and Canada, with light rain possible on most days this week. Tuesday may bring some heavier rain to the mountains. From Friday onwards, slightly cooler air may result in the showers falling as snow on the upper slopes.
