Banff is a fantastic destination for skiing with an urban twist. With a ski hill adjacent to town, two more within an hours drive, and all the shopping, dining and partying that anyone could desire; Banff is a seekers haven. Banff does not receive the amount of snow that BC resorts receive however when it snows, the powder skiing can be epic!
Banff is truly a great little tourist town. It is so many different things to so many different people, it offers something for everyone.
