Skiing & Snowboarding Winter Outdoor Activities

Imagine floating on top of a cappuccino. That’s kind of what it’s like to ski or board the legendary, airy powder in the Canadian Rockies. • Good to know: You’re spoiled for choice with ski resorts in Alberta. Wide open runs and uncrowded ski lifts may be so exciting you'll forget you're on the world's best dry and powdery snow. • Try it: Leave the resorts behind and book a backcountry trip. The pure white slopes are just begging for your attention. • Level up: Take a helicopter with some pals and cut into that untouched alpine marshmallow fluff. Make it a multi-day heli-trip with a stay in a mountainside lodge.
