Review 26/02/2007
Fantastic - so much snow they should ship it out to Europe! The only downside of the Tri area pass is that you need to hop on and off ski buses. However, they are very regular and you do not have to sharpen your elbows to get on them - very pleasant! My wife is a nervous skier but we found so many nice runs surrounded by great scenery that made for spectacular skiing and photographs. Banff was great for food, beer and hospitality. Also worth noting, the transfer is only 1hr 45mins from the airport. We will be going back in 2008 for sure.

My favourite resort has to be Banff in Canada. It's a much more civilised place to ski than many resorts in Europe. You get waited on hand and foot at the bars, restaurants and hotels, you always get a seat on the bus, the lifties wish you a good day and never fail to remind you how awesome it is at the top! The views are spectacular, the runs wide, open and practically empty and it just cannot be faulted.

Review 20/04/2006

Banff is crawling with great restaurants and good bars. Both Tommy's pub and the Irish pub in St. James's Gate do good, cheap pubfare.
For pizza and more, head to Athena's Pizza just beside the Clocktower Mall. If you want to splash out for a special occasion the French restaurant, Le Beaujolais, is the place to go.

For everything in between, try any restaurant on Banff Avenue, they are all good quality!

Vegetarians might want to check out the Sunfood Cafe in Bear Street Mall.


Looking for a rowdy night out? Once every two weeks on Thursday, all the Sunshine staff get paid and head to Melissa's bar, for $ 1.75 high balls (mixers). If you want to hang out with the ski instructors, lifties and other young folk you have been seeing all day zooming down the mountain at Sunshine, come early, queues can easily reach down the road as early as 9.30! The Pump and Tap is a typical English pub, for the homesick, with cheap drinks, in the basement of Bear Street Mall.

Afterwards, head down to Hoodoo's lounge, for mostly cheesy music and good atmosphere, or Aurora's nightclub for more of a clubscene.

Review 01/03/2006

My favourite ski resort is Sunshine Village in Banff. The ski runs are like runways and Devils drop is just the most awesome experience ever. The views are amazing and the tri area ski pass allows you to explore miles of mountain terrain. The option to board/ski back to the car park as opposed to taking the lift also offers a great experience as long as you don't run into any bears!
Once back in Banff, it's all about the steaks, ribs and Canadian beer. Occasionally seeing elk and deer walking down the street also makes you feel like you are in an unspoilt land. If I could recommend one ski resort on Earth, go to Banff and you won't be disappointed!

Review 13/02/2006

Banff has got to rate among the best places to ski, board, relax and have fun. Easy access via a well organized ski bus to three top ski areas makes Banff stand out from other resorts. The snow is fantastic, the ski areas are massive, the variety is second to none. Club Ski is a well organised way to improve your skills without going to ski school. Let's also note that the Canadian people are second to none when it comes to friendliness and service. Banff is somewhere everyone should go at least once.

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
