Banff Area -- Feb 11th - 16th

I'm considering going to Banff in February. How is the crowd
around President's Day? I've heard that it can get pretty crowded at Sunshine.
Thanks in advance!

I'm more concerned with how cold it can get during that first part of February. I like cold skiing, but late December, January, and early February can present some truly challennging conditions up there. It is all a roll of the dice, but a hard 'deep freeze' could really put a damper on holiday plans during that period.

Don't think President's Day should be any issue. Really don't get that many Americans as a % to make that much of a difference. I'd say get at least as many Brits as Americans. AS far as cold goes I think your pretty safe that time of year. To me a bit cold means probably clear and sunny and fewer people.

Crowds, before they replaced the gondola with a high speed 8 there was a long wait to get to the base. Now its 5 minutes tops with most of the time walk on with lots of room. Lines at the lifts are only a problem when visiblity is poor making the divide area difficult to ski ( big open snow field). So everybody heads for runs with trees.
