Canada, Big 3 Ski Area
Banff is a lively town set in the spectacularly beautiful Banff National Park. Downtown Banff offers traditional Canadian hospitality with an excellent variety of bars, some with live music, and a wide choice of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets. Your Tri-area lift pass covers the three ski areas of Lake Louise ski area (45 minutes’ drive), Mount Norquay (10 minutes’ drive) and Sunshine Village (25 minutes’ drive). A regular ski bus service, included with the pre-booked Tri-area lift pass, operates from our Banff hotels to all three ski areas. Although Mt Norquay is often referred to as Banff’s “local” hill, the resort should not be under-rated. Yes, 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).
