We drove up Mount Norquay and were very impressed by the wonderful view over the mountains and Banff nestled in the valley below. There was a couple of spots you could stop and take in the grandeur. We were also spoilt by having a herd of Mountain Goats grazing beside the road.

Do not spend $40 to take Brewsters gondola, go to the Norquay ski area right out of town and pay $15 for seniors. Unbelievable views and very friendly staff. Restaurant and bar has been reopened after many years offering drinks and meals. Also very good. It is a "locals" place and was great, great, great. Also no line and plenty... More

This Mountain had better views than sulphur Mt. The chair lift was $20., then discounted to $15. For seniors. The restaurant up top, Cliff house Bistro had a cheese platter to share with drinks. Reasonably priced. Views are incredible. There is public transportation from Banff to the lift. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were very reluctant to take the open chairlift to the top of Mt. Norquay. My husband would have rather gone on an enclosed gondola ride. Honestly, when you are at the bottom looking up at Mt. Norquay, it is a bit frightening. We decided to go and it was a little scary at first but well... More

I decided to turn into the Mt. Norquay exit just for the heck of it. Glad I did because I had a near spiritual experience when I took the chair lift to the top of the mountain. It was scary and exhilarating. The views on the mountain top were straight out of a dream. There's a restaurant at the top.... More

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 were sightseeing and I recommended we take the road up to Norquay. Very panoramic views. Once we arrived at the lodge, we noticed the gondola was running. 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
