12 July 2014 We were in Banff and thought we would take a drive to the top of the mountain and take the chair lift. As we got to the top of the mountain we drove up to the chalet where there's a turnabout to drop off people that can not climb the hill from the parking lot. As we... More

We had the pleasure of taking the chairlift to the top of mt norquay today. The view was spectacular and you could see all the mountains and the town of banff. We did the gondola ride last year and found we could see many more mountains from the top of mt norquay and the view of banff was much more... More

Gravel scenic mountain road with scenic overlooks . This is only a short drive out of Banff and at dusk is home to a meadow of a flock of Big Horn sheep about 50 yards off the road. The flock has lambs In the spring, ewes and the magnificent Big Horn males. We'll worth seeing !

Overlooking banff and hwy 1 the road leading to the mountain twists it's way through hairpin bends and gives drivers a fantastic view of the Rockies. Often sports car enthusiasts drive up and down as this is probably one of the bendy roads in canada! A tiny version of the French alps, top gear uk should bring Jeremy captain slow... More

What a great activity and well worth the $65 family rate for 2 hours. My wife, 2 daughters and I had a blast. The temps. Were in the high 40's F, sun shining and lines not too bad. You grab a tube, ride up the hill on a conveyor belt and slide down single, double and triple if the hill... More

We drove to Mt. Norquay from Banff in less than 15 minutes. Paid $22 each for 2 hours of snow tubing. It was an absolute blast. We flew down the hill way faster than I had anticipated! Depending on weather conditions, they may allow groups of 2+ to go down the hill together. I was pooped after 2 hours and... More

My wife and kids had never been skiing, so we signed up for some private lessons (also very affordable) and hit the snow. Instructors were very attentive and patient, the training... More

Only a 5 minute drive from Banff, Norquay offers Tubing, a family friendly ski environment and has a beautiful lodge. If you have a look on their website they have great events happening including chairlift speed dating on Valentines day. I never went but heard it was fun. The runs have a good pitch for going fast and the resort... More
