The Cheapest way to get from Calgary Airport to Mount Norquay

Calgary Airport to Mount NorquayIf you’re headed to Banff National Park for an exhilarating ski vacation, there are many modes of transportation available for the trip from Calgary Airport to Mount Norquay. But while some options are cheaper than others, bear in mind that when taking this trip in what are often harsh winter months, safety and dependability are equally as important as price, (if not more so.)

Mount Norquay is located roughly 150 km, (or just under 2-hours’ drive,) west of Calgary International Airport (YYC), and the terrain can present rough driving conditions, even for those familiar with traversing the region.

Taking a traditional ‘cheap’ shuttle or renting a car and driving yourself are not recommended options, for the following important reasons:

  1. Severe weather in the region can make navigation perilous for even seasoned drivers who have familiarity with harsh winter climates. Shuttle services often have a high turn-over rate, and don’t always guarantee spot-free safety records for their drivers, so you never know whether you’re in capable hands when using such a service. Driving one’s own party is also not advised, as inclement weather can make the trip especially perilous for those unfamiliar with these roadways.
  2. Shuttles run on a fixed schedule and are available only at certain times of day, so those who wish to take a shuttle will often be left waiting until their ride is scheduled to arrive.
  3. Shuttles are shared rides, which means your party will likely be seated with strangers, and frequent stops for those boarding and disembarking the vehicle may cause unwanted delays in reaching your destination.

Given the above considerations, it is highly recommended that those traveling from Calgary Airport to Mount Norquay instead hire a private transportation service. Even though the cost may be slightly higher, this is widely considered the optimal choice to ensure safe, convenient transportation for you and your passengers. Here’s why:

  1. Private transportation services are dedicated to providing a secure and reliable travel experience for their passengers; their business depends on it. These companies invest a lot of time and money to properly maintain their fleet of vehicles for safety, comfort and cleanliness.
  2. Private services provide experienced chauffeurs who are thoroughly background-checked and specially trained to navigate icy roads and other obstacles in harsh winter conditions. They are intimately familiar with the routes between Calgary and Banff, having traveled to and from these locations consistently for hundreds of ski enthusiasts. This means that your group is in the safest hands possible, regardless of the current weather.
  3. Private sedan, SUV, party bus or mini-bus shuttle services operate according to YOUR schedule. Your ride arrives and departs when you request it, and the vehicle rental is never shared with strangers, so no additional stops are made unless you request them.

When it comes to dependable, safe and on-demand transportation from Calgary Airport to Mount Norquay, the price is only as good as the service… the ‘cheapest’ is hardly worth the savings if it means compromising security and reliability to save a few bucks.

Traveling from YYC Calgary Airport to Revelstoke

If your trip to Revelstoke Mountain Resort begins with flying in to Calgary International Airport, you’ll have a good distance to travel to Revelstoke. The nearly 5-hour drive is not only lengthy, but may encounter snags since winter weather often forces road closures in the area.

Your best (and safest) bet is a private hired transportation service who provides professional drivers that know the region well and know how to safely navigate hazardous road conditions. While there are various shuttle services available, these are not ideal for a few reasons:

1. These services often have a high driver turnover rate and generally aren’t as stringent with their driver requirements, such as thorough background checks or clean driving records. Do you really want to compromise the safety of your party to save a few bucks?

Private transportation providers are more deeply invested in their business and are more likely to ensure that your chauffeurs have passed the most rigid driving record requirements and background checks.

2. Shuttle services take longer and make more stops, cutting into your precious vacation time to pick up/drop off strangers you didn’t necessarily want to share your riding space with anyway.

Private service ensures non-stop travel in privacy with only those passengers you actually invited along for the ride.

3. Shuttles operate on a set schedule; not necessarily YOUR schedule. If you want to take this type of transportation, be prepared to wait until THEY are ready to pick you up. And if your flight is delayed due to rough weather conditions, you may end up waiting awhile at the airport for your shuttle to come around again.

Private service will operate according to your schedule, and any provider worth their salt will allow for flight delays, promptly arriving to pick you up once your flight finally arrives.

Transportation to Panorama Mountain Resort from YYC Calgary International Airport

The driving time from Calgary Airport to Panorama is roughly 3.5 hours, so you won’t want to skimp on your transportation.

  • Lake Louise is one of 3 major ski resorts in Banff National Park, roughly 2 hours west of YYC Calgary Airport.
  • The resort spans 4200 acres of skiable terrain across 4 mountain faces in the Canadian Rockies.
  • Typical ski seasons run from the first week of November until the first week of May.
  • Courses are varied to accommodate beginner, intermediate and expert level skiers.
  • Ski runs include gentle slopes, cruising runs, chutes, glades & gullies and remote bowls as well as some of the most challenging skiing terrain in the Rockies.

  • Incentive cards, season passes and other deals & packages are available to suit any budget or group size.

While the scenery is truly magnificent in the region, the weather can be particularly harsh in winter months, and the potential for driving hazards is greatly increased. It is recommended that visitors traveling to Lake Louise from Calgary Airport rely on professional transportation rather than renting a car to drive there yourself.

Professional chauffeurs are familiar with area thoroughfares and specially trained to safely navigate dangerous conditions such as black ice, blizzards and blocked roadways. To ensure the utmost security for you and your traveling companions, hand the driving duties over to a seasoned pro who already ‘knows the ropes.’

Traveling from Calgary to Banff – What You Need to Know

There are many modes of transportation for those traveling to Banff from YYC Calgary Airport, but private car, limo or mini-bus shuttle service is the most ideal for those who want the safest and most convenient means of travel.

Why?

Because driving for your own party or catching a shuttle have significant caveats that can mean the different between a delightful luxury vacation and a trip rife with frustration. For example:

1. Whether you’re a year-round resident or visiting from a distant location, the driving conditions in Calgary and Banff can be extremely hazardous. Severe weather can befall the region with very little notice, making navigation perilous for even those drivers who have traversed winter roadways before.

Hiring an experienced chauffeur who has been specially trained to navigate icy roads and blistering winter storms, and who is very familiar with the routes between Calgary and Banff, will bring the peace of mind of knowing that you and your companions will travel in safety and comfort.

2. Shuttle service is an available option for travel ‘on the cheap’, but what is saved in dollars is paid with time and inconvenience instead. Shuttles run on a fixed schedule, available only at certain times of day, so riders must conform to their schedule.

Furthermore, shuttles are shared with other passengers, (i.e. complete strangers,) and make frequent stops along the route to pick up and drop off other riders. This can be an uncomfortable experience for many travelers, and the delays caused by this type of service are eating away time that could be spent on the slopes.

Private chauffeured service is a far more desirable option, particularly if you’re traveling with a large group of companions. This type of transportation ensures that your group travels in privacy, with direct, non-stop service from Point A to Point B.
