Banff, Alberta (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
Banff National Park, a renowned powder paradise for skiers and riders, may have just wrapped up its seven-month snow season one of the longest in North America – but its three first-class ski resorts arent stopping the adrenalin there, inviting adventure-seekers, sightseeing-enthusiasts and even foodie-fanatics for a good dose of high-altitude experiences this Summer.
High Adventure & High Dining at Mount Norquay
This summer, Mount Norquay Ski Resort is keeping its North American Chairlift running throughout the season – opening up to sightseers some of the most impressive eagles-eye views of Banffs mountain ranges. Also, launching this June is Mount Norquays eagerly-anticipated Via Ferrata – a vertical, ultimate hiking experience that offers thrilling exposure and intimacy to the mountain face, usually reserved for rock climbers.
Literally translated from Italian as iron-road, Banff National Parks only Via Ferrata requires no pre-training or expertise just the ability to climb a ladder! Lead by a certified guide, climbers will take an unforgettable journey up the cliffs, assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables and ladders.
Adventurers can venture across the 30m suspension bridge and feel the freedom of walking in mid-air at a height of 15m, with the dramatic views of Mount Rundle as their backdrop.
