Kananaskis Country Provincial Parks

What do you get when you draw a border around dozens of provincial parks and rec areas an hour west of Calgary? Oh, just thousands of square kilometres of glorious Kananaskis Country at the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies. ● Snow sports: Trails, ski lifts, terrain parks: If you take you spend your winters with planks strapped to your feet, you'll be spoiled with choices. ● Only here: You’ve seen these mountains from the outside – how about the inside? Cave tours take you through twisting tunnels into underground grottos, complete with a rather flexible guide. ● Splash mountains: Hello, adrenaline. Whitewater rafting in K-Country is the kind of thing you dream about for literally weeks afterward.
