As the snow falls and lakes freeze here in the Rockies, it is hard to not get excited about the abundance of activities to enjoy this season!

Snowboarding in Mount Norquay

Downhill Skiing/Snowboarding

Skiing in the Canadian Rockies offers the opportunity of a lifetime to ski the lightest and airiest powder revered by skiers and boarders worldwide. The Canadian Rocky Mountains are one of the few places on earth blessed with the conditions that create an extremely light and airy powder, and Alberta has one of the longest ski seasons on the planet.

Snowshoeing in Lake Louise


Snowshoeing is an exhilarating way to travel across the blanket of snow that covers the mountains each winter. Traverse across frozen Lake Louise or Emerald Lake or on the many trails surrounding Banff, Lake Louise, or Emerald Lake. You will feel light as a feather as you crunch through snow drifts while exploring the Rocky Mountains in the winter.

Ice Skating in the Rockies

Ice Skating

One of winter’s greatest pleasures surely must be ice skating. Glide across the ice as the cold winter air nips at your cheeks. Combined with stunning rocky mountain scenery, this is a must-do activity for all visitors to the area!
