Air Travel:

The Calgary International Airport (YYC) is your gateway to ski the big three, namely [R368R, Lake Louise], [R448R, Sunshine] and [R802R, Banff Mount Norquay]. The airport is just 11 miles from downtown Calgary. Most major airlines have a home at YYC, including Air Canada, Continental, Delta, Horizon, United, US Airways, American, Westjet, British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, and more.

By Car:

Head West, young man (and woman). Use Hwy 8 from the airport to Hwy 40. Then it's onto the all-weather/four-lane Trans Canada Highway (aka: Hwy 1) and Hwy 93 into Lake Louise. Banff is about a 90 minute drive west from YYC via Hwy 1. Lake Louise is about 45 minutes west of Banff.

Those skiers and riders coming from the West should also look for HWY 1 East through the towns of Kamloops and Revelstoke into Banff National Park. Hwy 93 provides the final leg into Lake Louise, while Hwy 1 continues to Banff.

Ground Transportation:

The Banff Canmore Airport Express Shuttle (877-992-2633; www.banffairportshuttle.com) is a private, cost effective and convenient way to travel between YYC and Banff, Lake Louise, Golden, B.C, and Canmore. Other airport transfer services are available; call ahead for reservations.
