Accessible on the same Ski Big 3 pass as Lake Louise and Sunshine Village. Mt Norquay rises high above the village of Banff and is the most popular amongst locals. A bit scrappy in nature and vibe compared to the others, the hill manages to be a good place to learn while simultaneously offering some impressively steep bump runs. Big dumps are rare but there's good snowmaking coverage and crowds are small, making this a good option for a warm-up or cool-down day if you're making Banff your home base for the trip. Open for night skiing from 5pm-10pm every day!

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
