Anyone who likes to hit up the Alberta slopes for some ski or snowboard action in the winter dreams of how awesome it would be to live closer to the mountains.
The thought of getting up for a day of skiing and having a hill within 30 minutes from your front door is tempting, especially if you're fighting early morning weekend traffic from Calgary or Edmonton.
The good news is there's plenty of property for sale just outside the gates to Banff National Park. It's another matter entirely whether a ski home can fit into your budget.
We've rounded up some amazing condos, apartments and luxury homes — something to fit almost any budget.

That said, maybe a ski property is more affordable than you think? Click through the gallery below to check out some of these amazing homes:
