HI Hostels are, in this humble travelers opinion, the best hostels in North America. Check in was easy with friendly staff sporting good local knowledge. The dorm rooms are basic but clean, with bedding and towels provided. There is a bus stop that goes straight...More

Hi, all three of the snow resorts have transportation leaving from the town. Norquay is 10 minutes away, Sunshine is 20 minutes and Lake Louise is 40 minutes away. All three have their advantages and it's worth visiting all of them! The HI-Banff gives guests a free city bus pass, so you can take the transit right from outside the hostel to the snow bus hub and from there to your ski/board destination - plus it gives you transportation to a lot of the other local attractions for free.
