Ski Season is now in Full Force!

All three ski hills in Banff National Park are now up and running - with the majority of the runs open! If you are wanting to find out more information about the skiing at Mount Norquay, Sunshine or Lake Louise, then the Banff Aspen Lodge Blog is the place to be:

Mount Norquay
~Starting with the first ski runs cut in 1926, Ski Norquay now has a wide variety of terrain to suit everyone! Runs range from beginner greens to double black diamond runs that will challenge any expert.
~Norquay's long-standing reputation for challenge is based on the first runs you see upon approaching the area; no runs anywhere can match Upper Lone Pine and Gun Run, a dynamite black-diamond duo as demanding as any trails in the Rockies. Memorial Bowl isn't a bowl at all but a generous, consistent swath with an average 34-degree pitch that rarely feels the blade of a snowcat. Even the North American, the easiest of these runs, legitimately earns its black diamond.
~Three more chairs climb serve the area's beginner & intermediate runs. In addition to a small, sheltered beginner slope, you'll find the Cascade Quad chair which services most of the beginner terrain and provides access to Spirit quad chair and to the long Pathfinder Express quad.
~ Mount Norquay offers a variety of long groomed cruising runs, intermediate & expert. Because the terrain lies deep in a valley under some very steep summits, it has a really rugged and interesting feeling. Norquay also provides some of the most weather sheltered terrain in the area.

Stay tuned ~ more skiing information to come....
