Ski in Banff

1/10 Ski in Banff

Why go? A powder-lovers paradise and the ‘world’s biggest playground’, Banff National Park has three major resorts nestled within the parks boundaries: Lake Louise Ski Area, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay. All three areas have nursery slopes and special ‘slow-zones’ for beginners.

Activities: The ski-season here is the longest in North America, running from November to May and when not hurtling down the slopes, you can be horse or dog sledding, snow-shoeing or taking a wildlife tour.

Book:Virgin Holidays offers seven-night ski holidays in Banff; from £945 per person including flights.
