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 06-May-2015)
Some great skiing is still on offer at Marmot Basin (120cm) as the resort heads into its final weekend of the season. Snow showers have been bubbling up in the afternoons, resulting in some light tops ups of snow – this is forecast to continue over the weekend. Sunshine Village and Lake Louise above Banff (165/170cm) both are reporting excellent conditions for the time of year, with most lifts running. Both are expected to last well into May and the good base depth bodes well for some further good skiing in the coming weeks.
Whistler (175cm) continues to have some decent skiing high up on Whistler Mountain. Around 10cm of fresh snow is forecast by the weekend before the warm spring sunshine becomes more dominant.
All of our other featured resorts are now closed for the season.
North American Weather Outlook
Changeable weather is forecast for western Canada over the weekend, with snow showers possible on any day. Up to 20cm may fall at Marmot Basin and Whistler may catch a nice 10cm top up by Friday before the weekend brings greater amounts of sunshine.
More unsettled weather is forecast for the Rockies in the USA, with showers forecast on most days. In Utah where the altitude is slightly less than in neighbouring Colorado, expect rain rather than snow. Expect the sunniest skies in the morning before the clouds bubble up during the day. More organised snow is expected for the middle of next week.
The east coast is forecast to remain mild over the weekend, with mid-mountain temperatures sitting around +15C by Sunday. Some spells of rain are expected, especially on Thursday night and on Tuesday, but should be interspersed with long spells of warm spring sunshine.
