Norquay is a great little ski resort that is ideal for cold, windy days as it is lower and a lot more sheltered than nearby Sunshine. On average, its runs are steeper than in most other resorts which makes it interesting for good skiers. But there are some gentle runs too, which are suitable for beginners.

My boyfriend and I bought the Groupon special for Norquay when it went on sale and we were both pleased with our purchases. We went on a Monday and there was absolutely no one there all day. The runs from the Cascade chair lift were rather short and those were the most busiest since it was located next to the... More

This used to be a fun family outing but yesterday we realized that at the mt norquay tube park, they have taken away all of the options. There are no longer family pkgs, there are no longer half day options so for a family of 5 the cost is $120. + tx. The hill is steep so children are lucky... More

It was cold today - REAL cold. The wind made it unbearable to ski anywhere else in the area. I had never skied at Norquay before but someone told me it's sheltered from the wind so we gave it a whirl. The conditions were like everywhere else - a little on the sparse side but passable early season with a... More

We went to Norquay for our first Ski of the season. Our kids are 6 & 8 and have skied 2 seasons previously. The Magic Carpet & Bunny hill were alright for the kids, the magic carpet was rather slow. The bunny hill was a good length and width with some incline. You can get a reduced ticket for the... More

Cheap place to go boarding but watch your stuff. A staff member stole my friends phone, we used the tracker to find out but they're sketchy buggers, be careful.

I decided to go with 5 friends tubing for my birthday. We got there excited for a fun day, had been warm that day and we were thinking we would be getting some good speed which would add to the excitement. On our first run down 3 of us went down individually, my sister and her boyfriend went together after... More

I had a great time at Mt. Norquay. We were there for the start of the 2014/15 season. I used the last hour pass (20 CAD) and it turned out to be the best decision ever. Only 20% of the park was open, but when you have one hour to ski, that all you need. The ski staff was very... More

A colleague suggested to me that we check out the ski hill, although we were visiting in October. I am so glad we did! Much less commercialized than the gondola, the ski lift offers a truly remarkable experience, with exceptional views of Banff and the Canadian Rockies! The price was very reasonable, and you catch a lift to a cozy... More
