Get Ready, Get Set, Snow Days! - It is always a 'snow day' in Banff National Park
Banff National Park is the cool place to be this winter – in more ways than one! Celebrate the wonders of this exciting season with SnowDays, a fun-filled month of heart pumping, mid-week activities and weekend festivals jam-packed with adventures of all kinds.
Ninety-six years ago, Banff hosted its first Banff Winter Carnival, which saw enthusiastic participants hit the ice on the Bow River for some curling, and strap on their skis and snowshoes for fun in the snow. Nearly a century later, a full slate of festivals and activities bring those traditions to life: ice climbing, outdoor skating, hockey, ice carving, curling, snow sculptures, and more!
