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.
