We have been skiing for half a day. Slopes are short but steep. Much more difficult than the other ski areas. Mt norquay is only 15 minutes ride from Banff. Do not forgett to do the snow tubing. It is so much fun! We did it for 2hours. We also took the little chairlift to a great view point with... More

You can take the short drive up the mountain, there is a lookout at the top with beautiful views, worth the 15 min drive up. we saw many goats and cyclists on/in the road, so drive slowly. when you're up at the lookout, look over the ledge, you can walk down and take advantage of the Red Chair project!

This is a must if you are ever in the area. We arrived on opening time and stayed until 2pm and had plenty of rides on the lanes. The staff were all attentive and made sure the area was safe before you got into your rubber ring. This activity is great for young and old alike.

Norquay is a great hill, even when the North American is closed. By 11, the sun was up and the snow was soft. Lots of good skiing even at the end of the season, no line ups, great food, beautiful chalet.

Been going to Banff for twenty years and never got around to skiing Norquay until this year. The mountain spreads out in an unusual manner. The most challenging runs are located on the left side looking up the mountain. The middle is mostly for beginners. The far left has what I would rate as blue/black trails. Nice sustained pitches with... More

For the past three years we have visited the tube park but, never again. We went there on March 25, 2017 and , for some reason, they have changed the way they do the runs so, there were no more than two runs with sliders on them at any one time (despite the fact that all but two were open)....

This is really close to Banff and is a great little resort. I'm not an accomplished skier but the runs were manageable for me. The views over Banff are great and it was a good day out.

Mt Norquay is very close to Banff compared to the bigger mountains around the area. I actually really enjoyed this hill. It was not busy when I went and I was able to learn some more snowboarding skills. The runs are not super long and some of the terrain can be challenging. The lodge had great food and a variety...
