Whoever said bad things come in threes obviously didn’t take into account the Three Stooges or the Three Musketeers or The Three Amigos (look it up if you haven’t seen it). But the threesome that ultimately elevates the trio to awesome status is the SkiBig3, a triple threat lift pass that lets you ski the best of Banff. That’s 8,000-plus acres of world-class skiing spread over three resorts—Lake Louise, Norquay and Banff Sunshine—you can tame with just one ticket. Tame might be an overstatement. Yes, SkiBig3 makes mountain hopping a breeze, and you’ll get to experience the best of Alberta’s rugged beauty and lofty ski terrain, a ski season that goes all the way until May 20—that’s seven months of picturesque powder. But ultimately the beauty of Banff’s glacier-sawed mountainsides, from the mesmerizing peaks to the mesmerizing eats, will conquer you.
