Overall

3.5

An underrated gem, Mount Norquay is an affordable and family-friendly resort offering surprisingly steep slopes for a ski hill. While the lower elevation here means lower total snowfall compared to neighboring resorts, 85% of the mountain is covered by snowmaking! Located just outside of Banff, the Ski Big 3 pass will give you access not only to Mt Norquay but also Lake Louise and Sunshine Village.

I spent a number of days skiing Norquay because it is so close to the town of Banff. It is a small resort, that suffers a bit because it is lower than the other resorts in the area, but it is a good value, family friendly resort that is steep in parts and can be great on a powder day. A perfect half day resort. ... More
