Skijoring in Banff

January 23, 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 2022, skijoring is returning to Banff as part of the annual SnowDays celebration with hours filled of adrenaline pumped excitement and entertainment.
