Ski Norquay is widely considered to be Banff’s best family ski resort. Norquay has been a family tradition since 1926. Skiers and snowboarders will find terrain for all levels, including groomed runs, bumps and a terrain park. Not only does Norquay have the only night skiing in the Bow Valley but at Norquay, you can ride the only lit terrain park.

If you are learning to ski or ride, looking for some pointers or want to learn to “go big” in the park our snow sport center has lessons for everyone. After you pick the little ones up from our on-hill daycare, sit back at the Lone Pine for a drink and a snack, the perfect end to a great day on the slopes.
