When we think of snow adventures, the first thing that comes to mind is skiing. However, what if you are like me and aren’t fond of hurdling out of control downhill towards trees? I missed the boat when it came to skiing for some reason, it never really appealed to me. So this winter I set out to find great winter adventure alternatives to skiing. My snowy homebases were the little ski towns of Banff and Canmore in the Canadian Rockies , Alberta Canada.
