Set within Banff National Park, Banff town has a jaw-dropping backdrop and a genuine Canadian vibe. The centre of Alberta skiing, it’s hugely popular with Brits - we’ve visited more than 20 times in the past decade, and we’re still going back for more!

With a reliably long season, Banff’s three ski areas receive plenty of snow. Mount Norquay (the smallest) is the nearest to town, while Sunshine Village receives the most snow and is where you’ll most likely spend the bulk of your time. The largest ski area, Lake Louise is a 45-minute drive away but worth it for the varied terrain, wilderness appeal and back bowl chutes. All three resorts are covered on the Tri- area pass, which includes ski buses.

Banff town is a fantastic base, with good value accommodation, bustling shops and vibrant après bars. Off the slopes, there’s everything from ice-climbing to hot springs and, while the shuttle service takes you to the ski areas, a hire car gives you more flexibility.

"The bustling ski town of Banff makes a great ski base and offers an authentic Canadian experience. You're as likely to drink a beer in a bar with a local as you are with tourists."
