Two bananas ~> You could check out Sport Swap in Calgary. http://www.sportswapltd.com/aboutUs.asp

I'm not sure about Canmore. You may not get an extensive selection there as you would in Calgary. Have you considered just renting from the hill you go to or when you are in banff?

For clothing, you will want to check out the Mountain Equipment Co-op, near downtown Calgary (and also in Vancouver, if you have a long stopover there). You must buy a lifetime membership before you can buy anything there, but at $5 CDN, it's a steal. www.mec.ca

Sorry I didn't read your note properly. I assumed you were looking for used clothing as well.

You should defenitly buy in Calgary. Ski and snowboard equipment is alway more expensive in Canmore and Banff. By January most of the big retailers will have ski jackets and snow pants on sale. I like Sport Check and Sport Mart - both have several locations around the city.
