White Christmas Attractions & Entertainment

December in Alberta brings a scene from a Canadian Rockies Christmas card to life – mountain lodge with smoke curling up from the chimney, thick layer of snow on the roof, eaves and evergreens hung with festive lights, set against a backdrop of dazzling white peaks. Find a festive event, there’s plenty to choose from. Take in a traditional Christmas parade and follow the carolers. Hop on a horse-drawn wagon or a one-horse open sleigh. Find that perfect gift. Warm up in front of a blazing fire with a mug of hot chocolate. Indulge in the magic of Christmas. Here, it’s around every corner.
