Beat the winter doldrums with Parks Canada Celebrates Banff National Park’s 4th Annual SnowDays. You and your whole family can have fun outdoors with a variety of winter programs now through February 8. You can also explore one of the 44 trails by snowshoe, ski, or foot when you visit the park for one of the fun programs.
Here’s a brief summary of some of the fun you can have. Go exploring Banff by the light of the moon under the guidance of a tour guide. Strap on your skates and a helmet (or rent them) and learn basic skating skills from a local Banff expert. Take the kids to a fun Wildlife Detective program at the Cozy Corner Kids Activity Centre. Finally, have a blast outside taking a snowshoeing class or going geocaching! All listed activities are free with park admission, except for the snowshoe class.
Read on for days and times. Visit the Parks Canada website for locations, more details, registration information.
