Alberta’s soaring Rocky Mountains are prized by skiers and snowboarders alike for their powdery, uncluttered slopes and breathtaking scenery. Ski above the treeline on Banff’s Mount Norquay for mountaintop views that reach for miles. Glide through wide forest runs flanked by towering pine, spruce and fir trees and pause between runs to admire glittering lakes and tree-covered slopes. The season lasts from early November right through to May.
