The road leading to the Mt. Norquay ski area has a great scenic view overlooking Banff, and running through a major wildlife corridor as it does it's a good place to spot wildlife mornings and evenings.

Norquay is a great hill, even when the North American is closed. By 11, the sun was up and the snow was soft. Lots of good skiing even at the end of the season, no line ups, great food, beautiful chalet.
