Amazing resort! Has to be one of my favorite spots for big bowl boarding. These runs are crazy long and have different challenges along the run. I was fortunate and has blue bird days the entire time. But it was a phenomenal resort. The bus takes you from town to the mountain and back. It’s super accessible and a ton of fun.... More

Really fun place. Very easy to navigate your way around all of the runs as the majority of them funnel back towards the village. Goats eye runs give good options for more advanced. Lots of options for accomodation in Banff or Canmore.... More

Beautiful powder and groomed runs with lots of terrain to satisfy the most experienced skier. Loved true ambiance of the ski town for shopping eating and resting after a day on the mountains. The people were most friendly with a smile and service for any needs you may have. Transportation to and from the airport and the ski area was well planned... More
