This ski resort has been offering downhill thrills since 1926. Norquay boasts gentle beginner slopes, exciting expert runs and everything in between. There is also a fully maintained snowboard park. For after-ski activities, march your tired legs into one of Canada's best ski lodges. This is a true family resort that provides rentals and lessons to skiers of all ages and abilities.
I have been to Banff 5 times in my life and I am still relatively young and Mt. Norquay is awesome in the summer. It is free and you are guaranteed a great view of the valley as well as some big horn sheep closeups. At the top of the mountain I also saw a coyote and 3 Grizzley bears. A lot of wildlife because it is far enough from town.
Personally, I did not get a very good first impression of the ski resort. All of the slopes were icy and they seem ill-kept. On my way to my first run, the Cascade Chair Lift broke. I had to go to the other lift. Although the snowboard park is great and large the other slopes were disappointing.
There are adequate signs and the slopes are okay. I would recommend going to other resorts such as Sunshine Village and Lake Louise Ski Resort instead. Norquay is good a light ski day only.
