A 5-10 minutes drive (lots of switchbacks) from downtown takes you to Norquay. It offers a beautiful view of the town of Banff. There are two red Adirondack chairs at the top - sit, relax, let the groundhogs entertain you and spend a few minutes being grateful for your visit.

I wanted to turn back about 100 feet of the up-climb, but the guides and my family encouraged me to continue. I'm so glad I did. We took the 2 hour tour, and even though we didn't get views we got snowed on and enjoyed the challenge of the climb. The guides are excellent - very patient and skilled, and... More

We went up the chair to the top of the ski area on opening day and had a latte in the Bistro. It was free for the locals that day. I can tell you this experience did not disappoint. The view was terrific, and staff very friendly and the bistro efficient. I highly recommend this attraction to anyone. The regular... More

We went in to enquire and found staff very helpful and friendly. We decided to go up. It was and excellent ride on the ski lift up. The view of the Banff... More

Take a road up to Mt. Norquay. There is a spectacular stop there when you can simply enjoy view of Banff and areas. There are 2 red chairs there provided by Parks. The nicest spot ever!

This is the place for skiing just outside of Banff. It is about 15 minutes by car. In the way to the sky area you can see moose and goats. They offer slopes with different levels, for everybody.

Tubing on Banff's Mt Norquay with family & friends is one of the most exhilarating experiences that you will have sitting on your bum. Great for young and old! Go early to get most runs in before it gets busy at 12 noon and after. Lift operator was dancing to the music 'cranked' at the bottom of the hill's magic... More

Having been to Lake Louise and Sunshine, Mt Norquay was a pleasant surprise. Altough tiny by comparison, our adult daughter was keen to try snowboarding and managed to get a lesson, inclusive of all equipment for four hours for less than half being offered at the other resorts. I enjoyed the Apres Skiing in the lounge area watching her from... More

Pleasantly surprised with quite good snow conditions on the runs, especially considering that through the previous month, the area has gotten little snowfall, and temperatures have tended well above normal. Quite pleasant skiing with warm sunny conditions on soft-packed and groomed runs, Skied three mid-week days over the past two weeks, and plan to get out a few more times... More
