The Best Ski Resorts in Alberta

From luxurious ski lodges to world-renowned Olympic-standard runs, Alberta offers a diverse range of resorts to suit all skill sets.

  • 1. Banff

    Easily Alberta’s most recognizable and popular ski destination, the Banff mountains provide a haven for skiers. Mount Norquay has been among Canada’s go-to ski destinations since 1926 with a total of 60 runs and excellent off-piste facilities.

  • 2. Lake Louise Ski Resort

    Could there be a more legendary Canadian ski resort than Lake Louise? This breathtaking terrain is a skier’s paradise with unique layouts for beginners and white-knuckle runs for the experts. If that wasn’t enough, just admire the stunning view over the Rockies from the lodge.

  • 3. Nakiska Ski Area

    Go for gold at Nakiska Ski Resort. Scene of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games, you can follow in the tracks of Pirmin Zurbriggen and Marina Kiehl as you glide down the slopes of Alberta’s most picturesque resorts.

  • 4. Castle Mountain

    The tonic to the crowds of the Banff mountains – Castle Mountain is among Alberta’s more refined resorts. Home to authentic après-ski bars and one of the few Cat Ski operations in Western Canada – a thrilling Powder Stagecoach trail across its 900 acres – this is the gentle giant of the Rockies.

  • 5. Kicking Horse Mountain

    Having arguably the best name in Alberta’s ski resorts, Kicking Horse Mountain has the slopes to match. Take on the Powder Highway of soft snow before dining at the mountaintop Eagle’s Eye Restaurant.
