The iconic Rimrock Resort Hotel can be seen peaking through the trees in Banff Upper Hot Springs. The hotel has a long history in the area and incredible views over the National Park which are hard to beat.


You will be based in the centre of Banff Upper Hot Springs and a ten minute walk from the Banff Gondola. The hotel has a unique position on Sulphur Mountain surrounded by trees and overlooking Banff National Park.

Banff downtown is a short five minute drive away and you can hop on the local ROAM bus just outside the hotel.

Banff is a dynamic town set in the spectacular Banff National Park. Downtown Banff offers traditional Canadian hospitality with an excellent variety of over 130 bars, restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries that cater for all tastes and budgets. 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.

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!
