One of Canada’s sunniest cities, Calgary is Alberta’s biggest city, where the mountains meet the prairies. A fresh snowfall transforms it into the most picturesque winter wonderland. The city is packed with winter fun, whether that means speeding down a ski slope or finding the best hot chocolate in town.
Day Trip - Layer up and enjoy Alberta’s bluebird winter days, without leaving Calgary. There are plenty of parks that feel like an escape from the city, with winding trails to explore and enchanting winter scenery. Fish Creek Provincial Park in south Calgary is a go-to spot for easy walks – you may even spot a frozen waterfall.


Kananaskis is a stunningly beautiful valley of the Canadian Rockies, wrapping around the charming mountain town of Canmore. Together, they satisfy any adventurous appetite, with elevated cuisine, shop-lined streets and undisturbed wilderness.
Indulge - Hot, warm, cold, rest, repeat. That’s the motto to remember at the Kananaskis Nordic Spa. Situated near the Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, the spa covers nearly 5,000 square metres (50,000 square feet) of pure relaxation. 

The alpine sanctuary is an indulgent retreat complete with amenities like five hydrotherapy pools, winterized hommocks, and the Two Trees Bistro.


The southwest corner of Alberta has everything you need, if what you need is mountains, wildlife, lakes, history, restaurants, views, waterfalls and boat cruises that cross an international border. Waterton Lakes National Park, Castle Provincial Park, Crowsnest Pass and Pincher Creek are the soon-to-be-not-so hidden gems of the Canadian Rockies.
Stay & Play - The Waterton Glacier Suites is a year-round vacationer’s dream, with gorgeous mountain views, a fireplace in every suite, and a variety of winter-getaway packages offered in conjunction with local outdoor operators.


Lake Louise

It’s world famous for a reason. Lake Louise is like a postcard you can step right into. In winter, the frozen lake is packed with Canadians ice skating in their natural habitat. The hamlet of Lake Louise is Canada’s highest alpine community, with provisions for whatever your adventure requires.
Embrace your inner Canadian - Have you ever gone skating on a frozen lake in the Canadian Rockies? What about one that looks straight out of a postcard? Skating on Lake Louise is a winter rite of passage in Alberta. 

You’ve got plenty of opportunities to enjoy it too, since skating is offered from mid-December to mid-April, depending on the weather. The lake is cleared daily, so you’ll have ideal conditions to practice your footwork. It’s also lit up in the evening for night skating.

Picture-perfect scenery and rich history come together in the birthplace of Canada’s national parks system. Endless winter outdoor adventures are just waiting to be experienced in this beautiful mountain town.
Hit the slopes! - Canada’s first national park is home to SkiBig3 – Lake Louise Ski Resort, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay – where you can ski or snowboard at all three resorts with one pass. 

They all provide rental equipment, and you can even have the same ski instructor come with you to each resort. Local hotels and resorts often partner to create vacation packages and handle transportation for guests.


This town, national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the northern Canadian Rockies is defined by raw beauty and rugged wilderness. The easy-going locals treat you like long-lost pals and will be happy to help you wake up your Wild Side.
Who let the dogs out? - Glide through a winter wonderland on a tried-and-true Canadian Rockies transportation method. 

Sit back and relax under cozy blankets while a team of seriously strong – and seriously adorable – sled dogs lead the way. The team (along with an expert guide, of course) knows exactly where to go for the most stunning winter scenery.



Edmonton is a young city that loves any excuse to go out on the town, even in a snowstorm. And there's prime shopping, too. West Edmonton Mall is literally the size of a city, and the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market is famous for a reason.
Stay mobile, stay warm - The North Saskatchewan River Valley is a must-see in Edmonton. It’s the longest expanse of urban greenspace in North America – 22 times larger than New York’s Central Park! 

It’s also a year-round activity hub for locals and visitors alike. Segways are a fun and easy way to navigate the winding pathways in the winter or rent a fat bike and pedal through the expansive park system.

This former coal mining town is a hub for outdoor adventures. Go ice bubble spotting on the famous Abraham Lake. 

When the lake freezes in the winter, methane bubbles get trapped in the ice, making it a beautiful ice skating and photography destination.


Dog Sledding

Take in the magical winter scenery with a thrilling and uniquely Canadian experience. Learn from an experienced musher as you’re pulled through a stunning snowy landscape by a team of powerful sled dogs.

Sled dogs are born to run – so hold on tight.

Métis Crossing

Count the stars in a luxurious sky watching dome at Métis Crossing, an Indigenous cultural centre northeast of Edmonton. Guests can try their hand at traditional experiences such as porcupine quill work and soapstone carving, or visit the wildlife park and historic village to learn more about Métis culture.

Look up –
Alberta is a prime spot for chasing the northern lights. Watch the skies come alive with Aurora’s mesmerizing dance from the cozy confines of your dome.
