12 September 2016: World-class skiing for all abilities, airy ‘champagne’ powder and one of the longest seasons in North America make the Rocky Mountain resorts in the Canadian province of Alberta a must-see and ski this winter.
In Banff and Lake Louise, three resorts – Mt. Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village – offer 334 runs set across almost 8,000 acres of skiable National Park terrain, all easily explored using one tri-area lift ticket. Further north in Jasper National Park, the 1,675-acre Marmot Basin offers 86 runs, and receives over 400 centimetres of feather light snowfall annually.
To bag a bargain and experience Alberta’s superb slopes first-hand, British holidaymakers planning a ski holiday this winter should book early to enjoy prices from just £995 per person.
