1. Explore the best of all Ski Big 3 resorts with one expert guide

If you’re an adventurer seeking exploration while you boost your skills, you’re in luck. The Club Ski program is structured over three days at all Ski Big 3 resorts: Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village. Consider it a Banff National Park ski safari.

On top of learning from a certified Club Ski expert, you’ll get the inside scoop on where to find the best powder and most stunning views at three of Canada’s most iconic resorts. Want to find runs that are absolutely perfect for your skill level? Your Club Ski instructor knows these resorts like the back of their hand and will guide you to those hidden gems and stashes.

Having the same Club Ski pro for all three days means your skill level will progress rapidly as they work with you throughout your journey. You can meet our friendly Snow Pros here.

2. Skyrocket your confidence with just a few lessons

You’re probably a lot more capable than you think. After just a few ski lessons, you’ll get a huge boost in confidence that’ll allow you to enjoy the Banff and Lake Louise terrain and conditions even more. Club Ski instructors are recruited for their expertise, patience, people skills and track record of helping others boost their skills in a short amount of time.

While the idea of trying to teach yourself to ski might sound more independent, expert guidance from our Snow Pros means you’ll minimize the bails and maximize the fun. The more efficiently you learn, the more confidence you’ll gain, and the more memorable your experience will be.

3. Build your skills in great company

Club Ski is true to its name. The vibe is friendly, warm and very fun which makes these lessons feel like you’re part of a private club with like-minded adventurers. Groups are developed based on skill level, so whether your a beginner or a seasoned veteran, you’ll be in great company.

Exploring all three Ski Big 3 mountains with the same instructor and the same fellow skiers means you’re likely to make some great friends by the end of the program. There’s nothing like the excitement of a shared challenge.

And the friendly atmosphere doesn’t have to end once you’ve finished your Club Ski experience. Some of Banff National Park’s most knowledgeable locals are Ski Friends and Snow Hosts at Mt Norquay, The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village. These friendly faces host daily tours at the resorts and they are delighted to answer your questions, or be your ski buddy.

4. Stay safer on the slopes

Like any sport (or even driving a car), skiing has its risks. Learning good habits and proper technique from the start means you’re much more likely to avoid injuring yourself or someone else.

Club Ski lessons have been carefully designed with your safety and enjoyment in mind.  Our Snow Pros consider it their mission to help you finish each day feeling invigorated and in top shape for your next adventure.

5. Find your perfect fit with lessons for all abilities

Club Ski welcomes all ability levels. You might be a brand-new beginner who’s never seen snow and wants to experience the joy of skiing for the first time. Or you might have ample ski experience, but it may have been a while since you last hit the slopes. Or you might be interested in enrolling your little one in Club Junior – the fastest way for kids to learn essential skiing skills focused on safety, adventure, instruction and fun. Or perhaps you’re a snow-seeker interested in a guided tour to find the best powder.

Regardless of your experience level, Club Ski has the perfect group where your lessons are tailored for you and your fellow skiers.

Ready to take your adventure to the next level? Have questions?

If three days across the three resorts doesn’t line up with your plans, private and single-day Ski Big 3 group lessons are also available. While snowboarding lessons are not part of the Club Ski program, they are available individually at the resorts.
