Banff Freestyle Camps

Canada: Alberta

Improve your skills, master new tricks and have a blast in Banff, Canada’s freestyle Mecca and fun party town!

Option A - Irwin's Mountain Inn (3.5 Star)

Located on Banff Avenue, Banff 's main street, Irwins Inn is a great place to spend the season. The town centre is only a short walk away with Irwins being the closest accommodation of any course provider in Banff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and each have en-suite bathrooms, cable TV and either two queen sized beds or one king sized bed in single rooms, which are available for an additional supplement, however most people choose to share double rooms.

The hotel has great facilities; after a long day riding with your mates you can enjoy the hotel's hot tub or if you still have the energy, hit the gym for some gentle weights or cardio. Guests also have the use of an indoor swimming pool five days a week. Free wireless Internet is available and the buses to all the resorts leave from literally just outside the hotel doors, so there is no need to walk anywhere with all your ski kit to catch the bus. Irwins also has on site laundry facilities, taking the effort out of the weekly clothes wash.

 

Option B - Samesun Hostel

For those of you who would prefer a more budget friendly accommodation option then the SameSun Hostel is perfect. This fun, friendly hostel is situated right next door to Irwin's Hotel so the group of Nonstopers are all close together. SameSun's proximity to the town centre is also unique for hostels in Banff.

The hostel has six bed dorms (3 bunk beds) with ensuite bathrooms. There's a communal kitchen as well as the hostel bar which is likely to have something going on every night, whether it's an open mic night, karaoke, or poker night, and is a great place to meet travellers from all over the world.

 

Pre & Post Stays

Like everyone that visits Banff, you won't want to leave. We now offer accommodation both before and after your course so that you can spend between three to six months in Canada.

This is a great chance to enjoy the quiet, early season powder days and to get some practice in before your course starts. You can arrive in Banff anytime from early December and stay as late as early May. Additional accommodation is charged at a rate of $300-400/week and includes all utility bills. Your season pass is valid from the time you arrive in Banff until the resorts close.

You can also prolong your stay in the SameSun accommodation option. The Samesun is also a great place to tell your friends about if they wish to come and visit you during the season.

 

Coming as a couple

If you are coming as a couple please contact the office as we can easily accommodate you with a tailored package.

 

Can I get a single bedroom?

Yes, subject to availability, you can pay an additional supplement for your own room. A single room secures your own privacy only, this does not guarantee you a double bed and will be the same standard as the other rooms. Singles will be allocated on a first come first served basis.


Will I be able to share a room with a friend?

If you would like to share a room with a friend please make a note of this and let us know. Couples can request a double room.


Do I need to provide my own linen?

Linen and towels are provided. However we ask that you bring a towel for swimming, hot springs and weekend trips. In Banff your sheets will be regularly washed for you.


Will the accommodation be cleaned?

Yes, your accommodation will be given a clean once a week. It’s up to you to clean your dishes, tidy the house etc, but we will clean bathrooms, kitchens, vacuum, dust etc.


Is there a central common room where I can meet other skiers?

Irwins Inn in Banff has a comfortably furnished communal lounge with large screen TV.
