It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!

For those who are ski and snowboard enthusiasts

The hills are alive with the sound of screams of joy, the air is filled with excitement and anticipation as the last of our local ski hills open.

Whether you are a downhill skier, cross-country skier or just want to enjoy a leisurely tube ride down the hill, Canmore Kananaskis is the dream place to stay and play. We hold 2 of the ’88 Olympic venues, Nakiska Mountain Resort, for downhill skiing, and the Canmore Nordic Centre for Nordic skiing. Lake Louise Ski Resort is the home to the Annual Men’s and Women’s downhill World Cup.

If you’re a fan of Canadian and US Olympian’s, you’d be surprised how many you can bump into on the tracks or on the hills!

Just a note, only a select green and blue runs are currently open at each ski resort until further notice or until it snows a great deal more here in the Rockies. A great opportunity for beginners to get out there and get some mid-week lessons in before the season really kicks off.

Enjoy yourselves out there!
