Ski Resorts Near Calgary

World-class Rocky Mountain ski resorts just a short drive from Calgary.

Calgary is the location of your next ski and snowboarding vacation. Drive through the Rocky Mountains from Calgary to Banff to access five unique resorts for all skill levels. The area’s altitude creates a long and snowy season. Ski lifts open as early as mid-November and run all the way to May. The long season creates lots of opportunities for deep powder conditions but also warm spring skiing. Plan your next ski vacation around Calgary and take the chair lift to your next adventure at these great ski resorts and destinations.
