Where can I go cross-country skiing?

Cross-country skiing is a great way to explore Banff National Park during the winter months. A vast network of classic and skate skiing trails provides plenty of options for all fitness levels. Banff, Lake Louise, and Castle Junction trails are track-set and groomed regularly, giving you the choice of leisurely loops or more demanding routes. Pack a lunch, grab your gear, and choose your ideal trail. Here is a list of 5 Cross-Country Ski Trails in Banff National Park

There are maintained trails all around the town of Banff and hamlet of Lake Louise. Visit the Parks Canada website for more information.

It is important to check the weather and avalanche report before heading out - you don’t need to venture far to be in avalanche terrain. Make sure you’re wearing suitable clothes and carrying food, drink, and extra layers. For more information about winter hiking safety and trails, see the Canada Trails website.
