Skijoring, Canada, Banff National Park
Amanda Ubell

Skijoring on Banff Avenue

We look forward to skijoring returning to SnowDays in 2022.

Skijoring is an exciting event and celebration of our history and mountain culture.

Skijoring began its rich history in China hundreds of years ago and became more closely associated as a winter sport in Scandinavian countries in the early 1900s. The sport made its way to North America and to Banff, in particular, as a part of the early days of the Banff Winter Carnival.

In 2020, skijoring returned to Banff as part of the annual SnowDays celebration with hours filled of adrenaline pumped excitement and entertainment.
