Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Hear the soft swish of your skis cutting brand new lines in the feather-light snow as you fly down the tree-lined slope. The ice glitters on the evergreens against a backdrop of blazing white peaks and baby blue skies. In Alberta, the slopes of the Canadian Rockies have the legendary, airy powder revered by skiers and boarders worldwide. Go by snowcat or helicopter to the backcountry, where pure virgin runs await. Boarders can also strut their stuff in the terrain parks. Après-ski, unwind in the lodge, rejuvenate in a natural hot spring, then hit the night spots with your new best friends.

Ah, spring! The days are a little longer and the sun a little stronger, but that doesn’t mean winter is out of the picture just yet. If you’re thinking of retiring the skis or snowboard for the season, think again!
