RESORT DESCRIPTION:
Banff National Park is home to three of the world’s finest ski resorts; Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village. That’s almost 8,000 acres of terrain on one tri-area lift ticket. The area’s unique inland location guarantees the dry, light snow that they’re famous for—and plenty of it.

There’s free transportation with a tri-area lift ticket between Banff-Lake Louise and the resorts. And with one of the longest ski seasons in North America, there’s plenty of time to enjoy Canada’s Protected Playground, Banff
National Park.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

SUNSHINE VILLAGE
• 12/1: Goat’s Eye Mountain and Delirium Dive expected to open, weather permitting
• 1/14-1/16: Avalanche Awareness Days
• 5/23: The 83rd Annual Slush Cup
THE LAKE LOUISE SKI AREA
• 1/14-1/16: Avalanche Awareness Days
• 2/12: Canadian Powder 8’s
• 5/1: VW Spring Episode ‘11

TERRAIN BREAKDOWN:

New for 2010-11 Lake Louise will feature a boardercross and skiercross circuit available to everyone, and all three resorts are progressing their parks. The rest of the mountains host terrain to suit every taste and desire, from gentle groomed runs to some of the world’s most extreme inbounds challenges.

POWDER PERSPECTIVE:

After a big storm, go straight for the Powder Bowls on the backside of Lake Louise, where you’ll find 2,500 acres of steep, above-treeline terrain. Lap the 40- to 50-degree steeps off the Paradise triple. If visibility is poor, head to the Ptarmigan quad to find stashes in the trees.
