Skiing at Banff Norquay

by Samscalling Online Now Jun 5, 2006 at 1:47 AM

Hello

Planning on skiing for a couple of days when we stay in Banff at the beginning on Jan next year.

I'm a complete beginner, although I might have a couple of lessons at Lake Louise before coming to Banff.

Looking at the Banff Norquay website - prices for 2hr ski lessons seem VERY reasonable - cheaper than buying a lift pass & rentals!

Do you definitely get to continue skiing after your lesson or do you have to come off the slopes & pay extra for this?

Same with the Lake Louise ski school?

Thanks in advance

    Lessons are the best deal in the Rockies. You can keep skiing after your lesson but will probably be restricted to certain lifts. This is a good thing on Norquay because there are a lot of places a beginner can get into trouble. Have you looked at Sunshine Village? It is my favorite ski spot in Banff.
