Snowshoeing Winter Outdoor Activities

Super accessible, decidedly chill. Snowshoeing is an easy way to conquer snowdrifts and see more terrain than you could with regular snow boots. There’s zero learning curve to snowshoeing, so there’s nothing stopping you from making giant footprints. • Top shelf: Ride a chairlift up a mountain to remote snowshoe routes. Why let skiers, snowboarders and bighorn sheep have all the fun? • Good to know: Snowshoeing makes walking in winter more fun, no matter where you’re treading. A tour along a secluded wintry trail in Banff National Park is worth the effort of planning ahead. Or bring a map and make your own tracks to a frozen lake in Kananaskis Country.

Reviews

From the legendary ski racers that have claimed their glory on Norquay’s slopes since the 1930s, to beginners clipping on skis or a board for the very first time, Norquay is for everyone with over 60 runs to choose from. The fun does not stop when the sun goes down. Norquay offers the only night skiing in the Alberta Rockies. On Friday and Saturday nights the Cascade chair is fully lit, including the entire terrain and tube parks. Banff National Park’s deep-rooted ski culture started at Mt Norquay. Norquay is also home to Alberta’s largest tube park. Just take a seat on a purpose designed inflatable tube, hold onto the handles and get sliding! Summer months offer opportunities to climb, explore and relax. Norquay has maintained its place as the locals’ hill for over nine decades, it’s Banff’s backyard – all while hosting skiers, riders and sightseers from all corners of the globe. Norquay is a Banff classic!
