Starting with the first ski runs cut in 1926, Mt. Norquay now encompasses a wide variety of terrain and ticket options to suit everyone.

Memorial Bowl is a generous, consistent swath with an average 34-degree pitch.ActivitiesSnowboarding: Snowboarding is allowed including a terrain park, plus regular competitive events.LodgingThere is regular bus service twice daily to 40 lodges with 4,500 beds in Banff 4 miles away and a campground for self contained units nearby.Winter RecreationSnowblading, ice skating, movies, and hot springs nearby.
