Been to Banff a few times but this is the first time trying the night skiing at Mt. Norquay (Friday's). They have something for everyone on a flood light slope: piste skiing, park skiing and even the opportunity to enter a GS or Slalom race, great fun!!

This is the biggest secret in Banff. The hill is not huge like Lake Louise but the terrain it has suits every ability from beginner to super difficult steeps. The hill is also minutes from Banff as opposed to the drive to Sunshine plus long gondola ride or the long drive to Louise. I drive past Norquay to Louise for... More

Me and a few of my friends went tubing for just under a couple of hours. This is a great activity for families and people of all ages. This was my first time tubing and I really enjoyed it, we all were giggling like a bunch of little kids. If you want something fun to do outdoors that doesn't take... More

As the title suggests, going to Norquay a week after a small snowfall left me a bit disappointed. The snow was very hard-packed in some areas and it was difficult to slow down after hitting jumps or carving quickly down. It was very busy, but that was no issue. Finding a spot to eat lunch in the lodge was not... More

We went to Mt. Norquay during Christmas, it's very small and only a few runs. If you bought the Big3 lift ticket, the other two ski areas are better with more snow. When we were there, Norquay was solid ice like snow crud. I felt at the last stretch of the traverse, when I lost my skis and stood on... More

Our family of six has kids from 16-4 years old. Norquay has some nice short beginner runs and blue runs with moguls for the teens. My husband and oldest love the North American chair and it's double black diamonds. This is NOT a huge hill. If you want something different for every run, you'll quickly be bored. Because we have...

We (family of 4) signed up for Snowboarding class at Mt. Norquay - and really got our money's worth. Nathan Key is an excellent and patient instructor. We learnt good fundamentals of snowboarding that we can continue to build upon through practice.

We (3 adults) are new to skiing and booked a 2hour lesson with instructor Stephanie Rose. She was excellent and we highly recommend her as an instructor. Within 40 minutes we had graduated from the magic carpet area onto the chairlift. Her ability to build our confidence and provide very specific instruction on how to improve was terrific. We booked... More
