The Canadian Rockies provide Alberta with an impressive selection of high quality ski resorts amidst spectacular scenery.
Located in central Canada, Alberta is a landlocked province, with the US state of Montana to the south and British Columbia across the western border of the Rocky Mountains.
The most famous ski resorts in the region include Lake Louise Ski Resort, Mt Norquay and Sunshine Village, all of which can be accessed with one SkiBig3 ticket. At each of these resorts you will find a wide variety of terrain, on mountain dining facilities, rentals and lessons.
The famous ski destinations of Banff and Lake Louise are located conveniently close to these resorts and are home to international luxury accommodation options, high quality restaurants, bars and cafes, designer shops and a vibrant arts and culture scene. Banff and Lake Louise are both easily accessible from Calgary International Airport.
There are plenty of activities to choose from on and off the slopes, including backcountry heli-adventures, scenic helicopter flights, snowmobiling, horse drawn sleigh rides, soothing natural hot springs and much more.
As the home of the Rocky Mountains, Alberta boasts some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the world. Be sure to allow time for a day trip to explore the spectacular Icefields Parkway. This breathtaking journey is recognised as one of the most scenic drives in the world, where you can discover ancient glittering glaciers and picture perfect, pristine turquoise blue lakes.
