Mt Norquay is Banff’s closest ski resort and is only an hour drive from Calgary. Celebrating their ninety-fifth season, Norquay has long been known as a family fun destination. From gentle green runs, rolling blue groomers, to some of the best challenging steeps of the World Famous Lone Pine that overlooks the beautiful Town of Banff, Norquay has a great variety of terrain for everyone.
Norquay’s Tube park boasts the longest, fastest sliding lanes in western Canada! From the dedicated tube lodge, guests can rent snowshoes and explore trails through lodgepole pine that open up to incredible vistas of Banff and the mountains of Banff National Park.Lift Infrastructure:

Winter 2021/22 COVID-19 Operating Update
After several weeks of seeking clarification from Alberta Health Services (AHS) for guidelines on the best way to operate, this 2021/22 winter season we have decided to implement the Province of Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program (REP) across all facilities at Mt Norquay.
Currently, implementing the REP program best ensures the safety of our guests and staff and allows us to efficiently operate our lifts and indoor spaces at full capacity.
The REP program requires those 12 years and over who are visiting us to show proof of vaccination, along with government-issued identification for those who are 18 years or older. An Alberta Government-approved, privately paid negative rapid test taken within 72 hours will also be accepted. Test results must be printed, photos will not be accepted as outlined by AHS (view here). Medical exemptions as required by the Alberta Government will also be accepted (view here)
