Banff Freestyle Camps
Improve your skills, master new tricks and have a blast in Banff, Canada’s freestyle Mecca and fun party town!
Banff's three resorts offer an incredible variety of terrain. The combination of Lake Louise, Sunshine and Norquay is the largest ski area in Canada.
The snow conditions and type of terrain varies considerably between the three resorts and offers our seasonnaires a great training ground for developing their skills and working towards their instructor qualifications. Your lift pass will cover all three resorts and our instructors will ensure that each day you visit the resort that has the best conditions.
Lake Louise is world renowned for its extensive area, dry powder, modern services, and stunning scenery. The vast resort is spread over four mountain faces, to give a massive 4,200 acres of trails and pistes. The wide, well manicured pistes and the challenging opportunities off piste make it a resort for everyone.
Lake Louise is also famous for having one of the best North American parks. There are a variety of lines laid out for different levels of experience offering beginners a variety of small tables, hops and rollers that provide a perfect introduction to park riding. The intermediate and pro lines offer more advanced riders larger table features and technical rails.
Sunshine is renowned for having some of Canada's best and most reliable snow conditions, so good in fact that there's no need for snow making! On average Sunshine receives a staggering 33ft of the white stuff a year! At an altitiude of 8,954 feet (2730 meters) Sunshine is the highest resort in Canada and has one of the longest seasons in North America.
The resort has a huge range of terrain from wide groomed pistes and winding cat tracks to open powder bowls and gladed tree runs. In general Sunshine is not a particularly steep area, offering novice and intermediate skiers and snowboarders a wide choice of runs. However, the recently opened 'Delirium Dive', only accessible to those wearing avalanche transceivers, is an awesome double-black extreme area that will push the most experienced skiers and riders to the limit.
Located just outside Banff, Norquay is the smallest of the three resorts but offers a wide variety of terrain including perfectly groomed pistes to challenging lines on some steep double black diamonds. It is a quieter and more laid back resort and when it snows this is one of the best places to get fresh tracks without long lift lines. Norquay has a good park, a selection of kickers and a variety of rails. There is a quick quad chair lift alongside the park so there's no need for hiking. Every Wednesday evening Norquay is open for night-skiing so you can make some late turns or session the park before enjoying beers in the Lone Pine Pub at the base of the resort.
