White Christmas Attractions & Entertainment

If you’ve ever wanted to live the life of a gingerbread man, Alberta at Christmas is your best chance ever. Lodges frosted with a thick layer of white snow, toasty fires, and actual one-horse open sleighs give new reason for the season. • Cozy up: For two weeks leading up to Christmas, Fairmont Banff Springs becomes a festive castle delivered straight from the North Pole. The experience is complete with craft workshops, wintry walks and plenty of hot chocolate. • Retail therapy: Shop big city malls and holiday craft fairs to make Christmas morning even merrier and brighter.
