Epic Travel Guide For A Winter Trip to Canmore in Alberta, Canada
Considering Banff National Park is one of the world's most visited, it might seem obvious that most tourists would skip right past the former coal-mining town of Canmore, located right outside the park. But this is not the case. Ever since the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, of which Nordic events were held around Canmore, the town has been maintaining a name for itself as an individual destination. Beyond being a place where Olympians still train, Canmore offers travelers opportunities for winter recreation. And although there is plenty to do outside around Canmore year round, winter is my favorite season to visit. Not only does it come with fewer crowds, seeing snow covered Rockies in all their glory is breathtaking.
In this video, we will show you some of the top winter experiences you can have in this destination, including ice fishing on Spray Lake, dog sledding through Spray Valley Provincial Park and cross country skiing.
