Ski Banff 2018 - Friday 9 February - Friday 16 February 2018

Greensward has launched its latest Ski Trip which will see our students visiting the heights and vast ski area that makes up the 'Big 3' in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.

Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies the stunning resort of Banff exudes both warmth and hospitality. A trip to Banff proves to be great value for money with our schools having access to the ‘Big 3’ ski areas of Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise ski areas. Set in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Banff National Park provides groups with a truly unique and picturesque setting. There is terrain to suit all levels of ability and with an efficient lift system in place, all from beginners to advanced skiers can enjoy more time on the slopes fine-tuning their skills rather than waiting.

Thanks to an extremely convenient Tri-Area lift pass, groups can enjoy almost 8000 acres of skiable terrain. This access is ideal for mixed-ability groups and beginners with numerous beginner runs and excellent ski schools. As students grow in confidence, Lake Louise and Sunshine offer intermediates various runs to challenge themselves on while the experts venture for the bowls and tracks of Goat’s Eye Mountain. The truly experienced may plump for the challenge of the Delirium Drop with a 40-degree average drop. Banff National Park remains one of the world’s most respected ski areas with excellent snow conditions throughout the season, memorable sunsets, and runs to suit all abilities.
