Winter Outdoor Activities

There are two ways to approach life in northern climes: make winter an opportunity for awesome, or get snowed. Let's choose awesome. • Try it: Learn to pilot a dogsled and experience the best of winter exhilaration from behind six trained huskies. • Only here: The light, dry snow in Alberta is the perfect powder for skiers and snowboarders. It lends itself to flawless snow tubing, too. • Relax: No matter how good the powder is, you’ve got to sleep eventually. Cozy mountain lodges originally built by pioneering railway companies are unbeatable digs for watching the snow fall.
