Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Hear the soft swish of your skis cutting brand new lines in the feather-light snow. With each turn, an arc of sun-sparkled crystals sprays up as you fly down the tree-lined slope. The ice glitters on the evergreens against a backdrop of blazing white peaks and baby blue skies. You feel like you’re living a moment from a glossy ski magazine. In Alberta, the slopes of the Canadian Rockies have the legendary, airy powder revered by skiers and boarders worldwide. Go by snowcat or helicopter to the backcountry, where pure virgin runs await. Boarders can also strut their stuff in the terrain parks.
