Peyto Lake in Winter
This is another good stop along the Icefields Parkway in Alberta. It's a short hike from the parking area to this lookout. (Not sure how long it is, but my 5-year-old son managed it, walking on top of snow the whole way.) In the summer, the lake is an incredible sapphire color, but the view is still spectacular when the lake is frozen over.
