Winter Wonderland Attractions & Entertainment

Alberta is a wonderland in winter. From the dazzling snow-clad peaks, dramatic frozen waterfalls, frosted forests and cozy alpine towns of the Canadian Rockies to the warm welcome of our vibrant cities and towns, your ultimate winter playground awaits. Once you’ve satisfied your need for speed on the ski slopes, try a new adrenaline-filled adventure like dog sledding, snowmobiling, bobsledding, tobogganing, snow tubing or ice climbing. For a gentle winter experience, try a guided snowshoeing trip, an ice walking tour along a glittering frozen canyon, a romantic sleigh ride or ice skating under an endless starry sky.

Frank Slide Interpretive Centre

Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre presents the history of one of Canada's deadliest rockslides. In the early morning hours back in 1903, millions of tons of limestone crashed from the summit of Turtle Mountain and buried a portion of the community of Frank, a once-bustling coal mining town. Through state-of-the-art interactive displays and exhibits, along with winding trails through the rocks themselves, visitors can get an up-close look at the awesome power of nature.
