Fun at Banff Gondola

Winter in Banff National Park is peaceful, but fun. Cool air freezes rivers to a standstill as deep, powdery snow covers the land, smoothing sharp ridges under a thick white blanket. Mother Nature’s gift of snow makes this the ideal destination for winter sports and activities of all kinds, including downhill skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, dogsledding, sleigh rides and more. You can also take advantage of this special time of year to enjoy other cold-dependent activities, such outdoor ice skating and ice fishing. Discover on your own or enhance your experience with the help of a knowledgeable guide. At the end of it all, you can relax and unwind at one of Banff’s premier spas or the hot springs.
