We visited the Banff area in mid-late March and enjoyed several great days skiing at Sunshine Village & lake Louise, but thought since we were staying in Banff we should try one day at its nearest ski field. What a disappointment...
Despite being advertised as a crowd-free field, we inadvertently arrived on a "toonie" day when hundreds of college student also descend on the skifield from Calgary to ski for $2. There was no signage to indicate this when we arrived and as we had already purchased a 6 day pass (at significantly more than $2!) we had no need to go into the ticket window which might have tipped us off & given us the chance to go elsewhere.
Needless to say, the lines for the lifts were long, the ski runs were crowded and chaotic and we abandoned the field altogether after less than 2 hours.
For $2 it might be ok but I would never go back.
