Resort Description

Banff National Park, set against the magnificent backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, is an area of outstanding beauty. Wild elk roam the streets and the occasional mousse can be spotted!

Banff caters for all grades of skier over a long season. Theres a friendly ski school and gentle slopes for beginners and intriguing runs for intermediates. Long steep runs and awesome off-pistes trails test more advanced skiers. Snowboarders will love snaking through the trees and the expert tuition on offer.

Banff is a bustling hospitable town. Many bars play live music and hold Wild West evenings for a genuine Canadian experience! All tastes and pockets are provided for in over forty restaurants.

Banff is great for shopping with clothes, local and Indian art and souvenirs on sale. A host of fascinating places to visit include museums, galleries, a Performing Arts Centre and nearby Calgary. Alternatively, try night skiing, husky dog-sledding or relaxing in the natural hot springs pools.

The unique combination of stunning scenery, fun nightlife and interesting non-ski activities make Banff a perfect holiday destination.
