   SKI ALBERTA


 Ski & Snowboard in Alberta
SKI ALBERTA
Resorts: Marmot Basin | Norquay | Sunshine Village | Lake Louise | Cross Country Skiing | Helicopter Skiing
Alberta features two World-class ski areas, Banff-Lake Louise and Jasper. Snow here is the light fluffy icing on the cake. Long vertical runs, fast six seater chairlifts (called six-packs), and glorious scenery make for the perfect day. At night wine and dine in lodges and Banff/Jasper!

Norquay is legendary for its hang-on-to-your-goggles steeps and close proximity to Banff townsite (10 minutes).

Sunshine Villagehas all natural snow, and lots of it. Longest runs in Canada combine with the longest ski season to make this an Alberta favorite. Ski here until Mid-May and work on that suntan in quick order.

Lake Louiseis Canada's single largest ski area and is a 45 minute drive from Banff townsite.

Marmot Basin is newly expanded and family friendly. A very short drive Jasper from Jasper and nearby are frozen waterfalls you can visit.

East of Banff are Fortress Mountain and Nakiska (home of XV Winter Olympics). These are the most economical of Western Canada's ski resorts and very handy to Calgary. Fortress is know for its high alpine skiing and great prices and Nakiska for groomed fall-line skiing on man made snow.
Fortress 403-591-7108      Nakiska 403-591-7780

The Rockies are almost as popular in the winter as they are in the summer. Ski enthusiasts from around the World fly into Calgary and Edmonton and transfer to the Rocky Mountain Resorts. Both Jasper and Banff feature terrific trails for skiing.
