Help Us Be Kinder to The Planet This Season


We all agree that #plasticssuck and we need to do more to reduce their use in our day-to-day, working together to eliminate their impact on our planet.

We can’t help but be inspired by the growing momentum of the #plasticssuck community, from our local friends here in Banff joining the cause and showing how they’re saying no to single-use plastics, to leading brands leading the charge to find alternatives that are less destructive to the environment.

We love our Park, and our Planet, and all we get to do within it, so it’s time to take action.

We decided it was important to do our bit, and work to reduce single-use plastics. It’s a marathon not a race with a big change like this, but we believe that by taking these steps we can continue to address our dependency on these products as consumers, and limit the use of them at Mt. Norquay – that’s our goal.

In our plan to reduce single-use plastics, we are addressing more than just straws – and we’re calling upon our skiers and riders to help us with our mission.

The #NorquayNudge is our way of nudging not only ourselves to be better, but all our visitors too. Practice the #NorquayNudge to be mindful of throwaway plastics when eating and drinking with us on-mountain. Across all of our dining outlets this season, you’ll notice these changes, so we ask you to join us in moving towards being completely plastic free.

Here’s what you need to know:

Milk Thermos

We’re done crying over spilled milk and we’re pretty sure that you don’t need individually packaged milk, so we’re switching to milk cooled in thermoses instead of single use milkettes.

Chinaware Dishes

Dish out your love for the planet with our new reusable chinaware. The #NorquayNudge is classing it up with reusable dishware – it might not look like your grandmother’s china but we promise it’s not meant to be disposed of. Please help us by keeping them out of garbage bins.


#Stopsucking and start sipping! We’re ditching plastic straws. For those who absolutely need one, we have biodegradable ones available at your request.



Stop forking around, it’s time to get serious about plastic consumption. We won’t spoon feed you, but we will cut out plastic utensils. #NorquayNudge challenges you to do the same. All meals will be served with cutlery, please place them in the containers placed on top of garbage bins.

Drink Lids

Time to put a lid on pointless plastics. Take your beverage lid-less this season at Norquay this season, or why not just bring your reusable flask or coffee mug? For hot drinks, if you are taking your beverage to go, we do have lids available at the cash register.
