There are few true 'ski towns' around the world, especially those with a choice of top ski areas on their doorstep, each with independent ownership. Austria's Innsbruck, Utah's Park City, New Zealand's Christchurch, and Argentina's Bariloche are some of the few. Not so in Banff, where the Mount Norquay is the nearest to town and offers flexible skiing by the hour if you have just a little time to spare for a few turns. If you are planning a full day of skiing or riding there is much more terrain available at Sunshine Village. Lake Louise, an hour's drive away, is also included on a tri-area lift ticket.
