Mt Norquay is the nearest ski area to downtown Banff (10 minutes by car or shuttle on the Mt Norquay Rd) and also the park's smallest. Dating back to 1926, it was the first ski resort in Canada to install a chairlift (in 1948). There are 77 hectares (190 acres) of skiable terrain, 33 trails and a drop of 503m (1650ft).

The limited runs and sometimes iffy snow has its advantages, keeping away the serious powder hounds and providing a non-intimidating scene for families and beginners. However, unbeknownst to many, Norquay has a few steep double black diamond runs that will turn your hair whiter than the mountain snow. There's also a terrain park, ski school and night-skiing at weekends. The scenery is spectacular.
