Watch this video and in under 10 minutes you will find out everything you need to know about skiing (or not skiing) in Banff, Lake Louise and Norquay.

If you are planning to visit Banff, you will find some useful tips and recommendations in this post. I will share with you the best ways to travel, stay and enjoy this beautiful destination.


I flew with Air Canada, which is my favorite airline. They have great prices and schedules, so you might want to check them out here. To get from Calgary to Banff, you have two options: either rent a car and drive on a simple and scenic road, or take one of the comfortable and convenient transfer buses here.


I stayed at the Moose Hotel and Suites, which had a spacious room with a lounge, a kitchenette and a fireplace. It was very close to the center of town and the ski bus stop. It also had a nice parking lot and a restaurant. You can find more information here. If you prefer something different, you can browse other accommodation options here.
