  • Toonie day at Norquay
    Looking to try skiing without breaking the bank? Have some spare change you found in the couch or car? Come on up to Norquay where you can ski for less than a cup of coffee. On select days Mt Norquay is offering Alberta residents a chance to receive a lift ticket for ONLY $2. It’s our chance to give back to the ski community we love so much. $2 Lift tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the event with an optional donation to a local charity of Mt Norquay’s choosing. Donations collected from each of Mt Norquay’s ‘Toonie Days’ will be divided between a variety of charities within the Bow Valley and Calgary area. Last winter we were able to raise over $20,000 total, all thanks to our amazing customers. Join us again this winter and help us beat that total! Toonie Day Dates: Decemeber 13th, January 10th, February 7th, March 7th & April 11th. http://winter.banffnorquay.com/event/toonie-day-4/

  • Snowshoeing - Gypsum Ridge
    A great snowshoe in Kananaskis Country that gives you a true backcountry experience. Gypsum Quarry was abandoned three decades ago and little remains except for a mining road and scarred earth. However, it leads you to one of the nicest view points of Kananaskis lakes you can get in the winter! You must answer the RSVP questions if this is your first time with the organizer of this event. Automatic wait list will be used.
