Located in western Canada, Alberta is home to some of the nation’s top ski resorts and highest elevations. But, knowing where to travel on your ski trip to Alberta isn’t easy.
So, we’ve done the hard work for you. With more than 30 ski resorts to choose from, these are the destinations you need to visit on your ski and snowboard trip to Alberta.
The snow at Lake Louise is outmatched only by the stunning views. With 4,200 acres of groomed runs, chutes, and alpine bowls, Lake Louise is the ideal match for beginning skiers and experts alike. The resort is conveniently located near the town of Banff, too, for added fun off the slopes.
Marmot Basin, in addition to offering beautiful alpine views, also boasts the highest elevation of any ski resort in Canada. While the location itself is relatively remote and not necessarily conveniently located, the slopes are certainly with the trek. Because of the area’s remoteness, the mountain sees few crowds so you can enjoy the wide variety of runs all to yourself.
Located inside the borders of Banff National Park, Sunshine Village features some incredible slopes along the Canadian Rockies. While the resort tends to be crowded, a visit to Sunshine Village will certainly have you coming back, too. The resort also offers ski-in/ski-out accommodations and modern amenities like a heated gondola.
While Mount Norquay may not be the largest ski resort in Alberta, its close proximity to the town of Banff makes it an excellent choice for your ski and snowboard trip to Alberta. The resort offers plenty of terrain for every level of skier and the slopes tend to be fairly uncrowded. Mount Norquay is also considered to be one of the more affordable spots to ski in Alberta.
Castle Mountain is Alberta’s second-largest ski resort. With almost 60 miles of skiable terrain accessible by six different lifts, Castle Mountain offers a massive variety of runs across the Rocky Mountains. With several steeps, bowls, and groomed trails, there’s something for every kind of skier or snowboarder at Castle Mountain.
