Banff: Getting there and around
Nearest airport: Calgary International Airport (YYC).
Distance to resort: 140km (88 miles).
Driving time: 1 hour 30 minutes.
Most places in Banff are within walking distance of each other, but it can become bitterly cold at times; so if you're not staying in the centre, you might prefer to grab a taxi. Some hotels run shuttles.
A public bus runs between the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, Banff Avenue and Tunnel Mountain, at the far end of town. A ski bus runs between various points in town and the ski areas (including Lake Louise); this is a free service for those holding a Tri-area lift pass.
