SnowDays is coming, and boy, are you in for a real Rocky Mountain treat. This annual festival has all the bells and whistles needed to embrace winter, inspire the family and make you wish you had all day to frolic in the snow. Held in Banff National Park for an entire month, you can hit up mid-week and weekend events, many of which are free, that combine history, culture and cutting edge winter action that can’t be found anywhere else. You’ll wish it were winter all year long. We certainly do.
Fuelled by non-stop fun, SnowDays has something for everyone. There are adrenaline-pumping activities to keep your heart racing and plenty of warm hearted ones to keep your cheeks rosy. If crackling fires and Hot Springs are more your SnowDay speed, you’ll find that here too. It’s a time to make new memories, experience old traditions and fill your lungs with fresh mountain air.
Opening Weekend will include a Kick-Off Street Party featuring a White Winter Long Table Dinner, live entertainment, ice carving demonstrations and a whole lot more. And that’s just the Opening Weekend. From there, you can take in the Ice Magic Festival or lace up a pair of skates and glide across a glacier fed rink. From the Pinty’s All-Star Curling Skins Game, MEC Ice Climbing Festival and The Big Bear ski and rail event to snowshoeing, dog sledding, and geocaching, it just doesn’t get any more Canadian than this. So bring your friends, bring your family and bring your camera. It’s time to take a SnowDay. You’ve earned it.
