Tubing & Tobogganning

Tubing and Tobogganing

Exchange your skis and snowboard for a toboggan or inflatable tube and let gravity work in your favour. Originally used as transportation by the Inuit and First Nations groups of Canada, tobogganing and tubing have been adapted into a thrillingly fun winter activity. The gradual hills, consistent snowfall, and mountainous backdrops of Banff & Lake Louise make for an idyllic tobogganing destination for everyone to enjoy.

Tobogganing

Any snow-covered hill around town can be used for tobogganing. Locals will tell you to visit the Spray Meadows Hill behind the Banff Springs Hotel or the Cascade Ponds on Minnewanka Road. Both sites are unsupervised so please have fun, but take care. 

For a guaranteed giggle, slip and slide down the slopes of Norquay on an inflated tube.The Real Banff 

Toboggans and sleds can be rented or purchased in town if you were unable to fit one into your luggage.

Tubing

Snow tubing is a whole lot of fun. It is similar to tobogganing, however instead of having to trek to the top of a hill after riding down, a plush towing system will do the hard work for you. As you relax back while being pulled to the top, take in the fresh mountain air and views before hurtling back down again. Tubing is a great activity for all ages, including children over the age of 4 (or 42 inches tall). 

This exhilarating outing can be enjoyed at the Mt Norquay and The Lake Louise Ski Resort
