Canmore Ski Season
Canmore is a great base for skiing in the Bow Valley. Skiing normally starts around November 10th and finishes in late May depending on snow conditions. You can ski “The Big 3”, Sunshine Village, Norquay and Lake Louise or head to Nakiska, Calgary’s nearest hill. Although having a car is an advantage and driving around the area is easy, dependent on the weather, there is a bus service from Canmore to Banff and pick up connections in and around Banff. Here is some more information. Join in the fun on some of the best powder on the planet!
Parks Canada encourages visitors to consult the Avalanche Forecast diligently at www.avalanche.ca and to understand how snow may impact snow pack and conditions.
