To ski at Mt Norquay means to stay in the town of Banff. Banff is just a five-minute bus ride from Mt. Norquay and free bus service transports skiers and snowboarders from the town to the mountain and back again. The accommodation options available are spread across an array of hotels ranging from modestly priced hostels to the height of luxury.
Banff is home to The Fairmont Banff Springs the area’s most iconic and historic luxury hotel with fantastic views and all the amenities you could possibly need, staying there is a real treat. On the higher end of the scale again is the Fox Hotel and Suites, Banff’s newest hotel offering mostly suite style accommodation with kitchen nooks and living areas.
For the more cost conscious exists accommodation such as The Ptarmigan Inn, conveniently located minutes from downtown and for those on a budget, there are hotels such as the Inns of Banff with a large outdoor hot tub and great views of the mountains. Banff is also host to some hostels such as the Samesun and Backpackers hostel.
Part of Banff’s appeal is its location set in the stunning Banff National Park. With this comes a small park fee which visitors can pay upon entrance to the National Park or in the Parks office itself.
