12 Must-do Activities in Banff in winter
Grab a pen and paper because this is one long checklist!
We would be remiss if we didn’t include skiing on this list of top winter activities in Banff National Park. An obvious inclusion because Banff is surrounded – and we mean SURROUNDED – by world-class ski hills. The three prominent ones in Banff National Park (also grouped and called Ski Big 3) are Sunshine Village, Lake Louise Ski Resort and Mt. Norquay. All three boast incredible views and something for every type of skier.
As always, stay safe and check trail & weather reports before heading out.
