A day skiing mid May - Beginners Lesson

We are starting to put together an itinerary Vancouver to Calgary (using Moose Travel), not necessarily staying at hostels though. We would both like to do a days skiing somewhere but a beginners class (we will probably be around this area mid-end of way). We have appropriate clothing, but not equipment. Can anyone recommend a place that we could ski at that do a full day 'class' somewhere that would be easy to get to from say Banff/Jasper without a car.

Mid to end of May you're limited on what ski hills are open and that have good snow by the. Check out Sunshine Village and Lake Louise Ski online to see what they have to offer.

Usually the only ski hill that is still open in mid-May is Sunshine Village, which is closing May 19 this year. http://www.skibanff.com/ Marmot Basin and Lake Louise usually close sometime in late April through the first week of May.
