Organizing Committee & Contacts
The nearest major airport is the Calgary airport (YYC).
Some public transport is available from the airport to Banff; click on links below for more information:
The Banff Airporter (Official airport shuttle provider of The Banff Centre. Reservations are necessary. Check website for schedule and prices.)
Brewster shuttle/airporter (Check website for schedule and prices.)
(The cheap option,
but it requires getting to Calgary first.)
If driving from Calgary, take the first Banff exit off
the trans-Canada highway and follow Banff Avenue,
Wolf Street, and St. Julien Way to the Banff Centre
(but see the road closure info below).
To get into the Banff National Park, you may have to buy a park pass. For more information, click here.
Driving directions to Banff and the Banff Center can be found here.
Maps of the Banff Center and Banff can be found
"During the TRIUMF Winter Nuclear & Particle Physics Conference from February 15 to 17, 2008, guests will experience the temporary closure of St. Julien Road, the street which passes through the centre of the property, as site work continues in preparation for the Kinnear Centre. To arrive at the Professional Development Centre for check-in, come by way of Buffalo Street, which connects to Tunnel Mountain Drive. You may reach the parkade directly when coming up St. Julien Road by turning left on Tunnel Mountain Drive. Please consult
The Banff Centre - Maps for details.
