Blessed with an enchanting location, this intimate village is popular with skiers of all levels and is backed by the majestic mountains of Banff’s National Park. There are over 4,200 acres of skiable ground covering four mountain faces, numerous bowls of deep powdery snow and over 100 named trails. Novices can explore the bountiful nursery slopes, while intermediates can develop their skills at the superb ski-school; experts can challenge themselves on a descent down the World Cup Downhill run on Mount Whitehorn. The lake itself has some lovely walkways for those who desire a change of pace.
