Surrounded by natural beauty, Calgary is a hub for ski and snowboard lovers.

The lifts for these resorts run until May, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the winter season and pack in some fun. There is a plethora of resorts to suit any level of skier/snowboarder all within driving distance from Calgary, making the city a good hub for day trips!



What is one of the most Canadian experience you can think of? Well, for many it’s dog sledding! This activity also doubles as a great educational experience for kids. You’ll learn how to command a team of well-trained dogs, what they eat, how they are cared for, and even how they are selected for the team! Led by an experienced musher, this experience will be an experience you’ll never forget.



If you’re on a budget this season, you can easily rent snowshoes in the city for an affordable price. There are many dedicated snow-shoe trails in Calgary that make for an exciting way to enjoy this aerobic exercise. Fun to try with your family or with some friends (socially distanced, of course!), this activity will get you off the couch and into nature.
