Set Current Location
This ski resort has been offering downhill thrills since 1926 in one of Canada's prettiest locations: Banff National Park. Mount Norquay reaches 2,133 m (6,998 ft) in elevation, which means that it boasts gentle beginner slopes, exciting expert runs and everything in between. There is also a fully maintained snowboard park for those who love to grind. Mount Norquay is a true family resort that provides rentals and lessons to skiers of all ages and abilities. For after-ski activities, march your tired legs into one of Canada's best ski lodges for a stiff apres-ski libation.
Sunshine boasts Canada's best snow, and it is one of the few resort operators that does not require snow making equipment; all the white stuff is real. Twelve lift systems bring skiers of all abilities to any of ninety-one runs spread out over three mountains. Some of the runs are the steepest in the Canadian Rockies. For beginners, Sunshine offers rentals and lessons.
With a steep drop of 50 degrees, Delirium Dive is considering to be one of the deadliest ski runs in North America. Located in the Sunshine Village Ski Resort, this run is extremely avalanche prone, making it essential that those who plan to negotiate it are nothing less than expert skiers and can use an avalanche trans-receiver, in addition to carrying other mandatory equipment. Needless to say, skiers enter at their own risk.
