The trails here are amazing! I don't cross country ski, but since this was an olympic venue, I'm sure the trails are immaculate! As for mountain biking in the summer, it's definitely a challenging trail! The prices are awesome, and a great way for some family activity when you visit here!

It was so well priced for a person who just wanted to try it. $10 for the access to the area and $20 for the ski hire etc. I hired the gear for 2 hrs but probably only lasted 30 minutes, it was very good exercise but I cut it short as I need my strength for the cave tour.

You cross country skate? Then you get the trail winter fee of $10 and get your holly bottom on the very well groomed Nordic trails there

We have visited the Nordic Centre a few times and have always had a great time! A great place for adults and kids of all skill levels! We stayed on the main tracks as we are still learning how to xcountry ski. The other skiiers around us were very encouraging and friendly. An amazing value for a family! Being active... More

Liked: the ski shop inventory, the service, the rental check-in kiosk, the resale of end-of-season rental gear, the ticket prices, the level of challenge of inclines, the biathlon Disliked: the weird toaster oven that sits on the floor every year by the wall of ski boots for sale, second-hand smoke from the employees having a break outside the buildings

Love the groomed trails for beginners and experts. Fresh air for all. It had been so warm and raining I did not know if there would be snow, but the main Banff Trail was maintained. Skiing when it is 5 degrees is a great way to spend the day.

You can rent skis/boots/poles for 2 hours and get a center day pass for about $30, and it is a great way to spend the afternoon. They also offer lessons. We arrived at 1:30 when others were leaving, so the courses were not too busy. The lodge is bright and warm, and has a cafeteria for drinks/snacks. A great workout... More
