Well Connected

Located on Banff Avenue and just a short walk to downtown Banff you'll be well connected with all the local facilities. Your room key doubles up as a free roaming bus pass for trips around town, whilst the ski shuttle to all the ski areas stops outside the hotel as well, perfect.

Canadian Dining

A massive stone fireplace dominates the lobby as you walk in the hotel, and perfectly complements the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Turn your head and the Keg Steakhouse & Bar will entice you with its fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner services. The food here is great - we're talking some of the juiciest steaks, slow roasted prime ribs and delicious, fresh salads.

Red Earth Spa

Be sure to also take a day out and enjoy the hotel's Red Earth Spa, payable locally. Along with a large jetted hot pool and steam room, this full service spa includes six treatment rooms where you can pamper yourself and fully unwind.

Banff

  • Resort altitude of 1,383 metres 
  • 3,358 acres of skiable terrain
  • Over 360 inches of annual snowfall
  • Transfer time approx. 2 hour by shared coach transfer

Banff is a dynamic town set in the spectacular Banff National Park. Whilst skiing is core to Banff's winter appeal, the town is host to many other popular winter activities, you can enjoy everything from dog-sledding, snowshoeing and relaxing in hot springs in one of Canada's most beautiful and oldest national parks.

Skiing and snowboarding in Banff

Banff provides home-base to three distinctive ski resorts, and a triple area SkiBig3 lift pass covers all three - Mount Norquay (10 minutes drive), Sunshine Village (25 minutes drive) and Lake Louise (45 minutes drive). A regular and free ski bus service, included with your pre-booked lift pass, operates from our Banff hotels to all three ski areas.

Mount Norquay is often referred to as Banff’s 'local' hill but the resort should not be under-rated. It has easy trails but also some challenging ones too, such as Memorial Bowl, Temptation and Lone Pine. Sunshine Village has some of the highest skiing in Canada. It has three mountains: Mount Standish (with some of the easier trails) Lookout Mountain (high above the tree line with views across the Great Divide) and Goat’s Eye (with some of the best tree skiing on its lower slopes). Lake Louise offers one of the largest ski areas in North America with over 4,200 acres of skiable terrain. New terrain and chairlifts are continually being added to this beautiful area renowned for its jaw dropping glaciers, lakes and forests.

If you ski or snowboard all three (known as the Trifecta Challenge), along with bragging rights, you'll be rewarded. Stop by the SkiBig3 Adventure Hub on Banff Avenue and collect your reward which includes a FREE pint of beer for your efforts!

Where to stay in Banff

We offer a range of hotels across the lively resort of Banff, all offering facilities that will make for the perfect ski holiday.
