Winter Wonderland Attractions & Entertainment

Didn’t you know? Hot chocolate tastes better after a rosy-cheek winter walk. See the pink-orange Chinook sunrise light up the morning frost. You’ll get why this place is special.

  • Pure glee: Tobogganing is a beloved Canadian pastime. Find any snowy hill, and ride down on a small sled. Again and again. It’s tons of fun, and not just for the kidlets.
  • Picture it: Freeze that winter wonderland by taking a winter photography class. A pro can show you how to capture the northern lights and mid-winter lake mist.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Situated across from the Canmore Helipad, this family-run horse ranch is bordered by a mountain creek and boasts several kilometres of forest trails. Here you’ll find horses, of course, but also a log BBQ gazebo and a donut tent with a huge fireplace in the middle, surrounded by picnic tables. With its rustic charm and convenient location, Canmore Ranch is a destination for weddings, family reunions, staff parties and other large events. In summer, drop by for a traditional horse-drawn carriage or wagon ride through the bush for a taste of the old west; in winter, cuddle-up with loved ones in a horse-drawn sleigh or cutter after the snow has fallen.
