Skiing was lots of fun. Good for the beginner/intermediate/advanced skier. Quite Hill to skiing down around Banff. Lots of runs and fairly easy to navigate.

Marmot has done some amazing things with the hill. The new fast lifts make it seem that it's never busy - even though the hill is totally full. No waiting in long lines. And good job on Tres Hombres!!

Hi Rach, Yes, the restaurants and cafeteria's all offer gluten free options. I'd personally recommend the 'Super Bowl' in the lower cafeteria - quinoa, fresh vegetables and your choice of Chicken/Beef or Tofu!
