In week 10, the trip takes you to Banff, located in the Canadian Rockies, and is a truly spectacular town in the midst of Banff National Park. Here, you often see American Elks wandering the streets in search of food.
During winter, skiing takes place at Lake Louise and Sunshine Village, as well as the local mountain Mt Norquay. Lake Louise and Sunshine are both known for their vast areas and fantastic dry snow, making off-piste skiing easier and more exciting. In Canada, there aren’t as many marked trails in the ski areas, but there is plenty of space to ski off-piste through the trees, and these areas are avalanche-proofed. So, you don’t need avalanche gear unless you plan to ski Delirium Dive in Sunshine Village, which is an iconic off-piste area. There is a free ski bus between the ski areas, and the trips to Sunshine and Lake Louise are incredibly beautiful.
In Canada, you almost never stand in line for the lift, and when you do, no one steps on your skis or pushes ahead in the queue. The lift staff often has a quiz ready and are friendly and helpful. If you end up sharing the lift with a Canadian, there’s sure to be a good tip on where to ski and a friendly conversation about their likely Scandinavian ancestors.
While in Banff, we’ll visit Upper Hot Springs and Chateau Lake Louise, where we can rent skates and play ice hockey on Lake Louise. The Chateau Lake Louise itself is a huge hotel located right on the lake “Lake Louise.”
The last time we went, there was also an arranged trip to Calgary to watch NHL ice hockey with the Calgary Flames at the Saddledome, so that’s also an option.
