5 Reasons To Put the SkiBig3 App in Your Pocket

SkiBig3 is your one-stop-shop for all your winter ski vacation needs in Banff National Park. And now, there’s a one-stop-app for everything, too! The SkiBig3 app for iOS and Android, the perfect tool for navigating one national park, two vibrant towns, and three jaw-dropping ski resorts – Banff Sunshine Village, Lake Louise Ski Resort, and Mt. Norquay.

Here’s what you can expect from the SkiBig3 app:

1. Ski Tracker

Want the hard data for your day on the mountain? With the tracker function on the SkiBig3 app, you can watch your ski miles pile up, day after day throughout your stay in Banff National Park. Fuel a bit of healthy competition with your ski buddies, and see who can rack of the most distance. If you happen to cover all three ski resorts, be sure to claim your SkiBig3 Trifecta award from the SkiBig3 Adventure Hub.

2. Webcams, Weather and Snow Conditions

Gore-tex or down? Ninja suit or sunnies? Take the guesswork out of prepping for your day on the mountain by checking weather and snow conditions for all three SkiBig3 resorts, right from the same app. Need further confirmation? Live webcam images are available on the app as well.

3. Resort Maps

Between Banff Sunshine Village, Lake Louise Ski Resort, and Mt. Norquay, there’s nearly 8,000 acres of combined skiable terrain to cover. That includes 356 runs, 28 ‘lifts’ (including magic carpets), a tube park, and over 20 food and beverage amenities to satisfy your tastebuds. While physical maps are great to reference while you’re riding the chair lift, rest assured that a back up version is conveniently stored right in the app.

4. Shuttle Schedules

There’s nothing worse than frantically searching for the next bus departure to make that calculated risk on whether one more sneaky pow lap is feasible. Kiss Google searches goodbye with the swipe of a thumb. All shuttle schedules for all three resorts, and the towns of Banff and Lake Louise are updated throughout the winter.

Your SkiBig3 Lift Ticket or SkiBig3 Season Pass doesn’t just give you access to endless terrain to enjoy to your heart’s content.

6. Banff and Lake Louise Guides

Although the town of Banff and village of Lake Louise are just a 40-minute drive apart, the personalities of both locations are truly unique. From the excitement of Banff to the serenity of Lake Louise, there are ample dining and activity options to enjoy. Find our recommendations for both in the SkiBig3 App.
