Three Unique Winter Activities To Do In Canmore

It’s no secret that Canmore is one of Canada’s premier winter playgrounds. And with the winter season still very much alive (for a little while, at least), there are still plenty of outdoor winter activities to sink your teeth into!  Not all winter activities must involve crowded ski resorts and gift shop visits, however. Without further ado, here are Three Unique Activities to do in Canmore.

Dog Sledding

Take part in a pure, authentic winter adventure with a guided dog sled tour. Experiencing the spectacular winter beauty of the Rockies from the intimacy of a dog sled is a thrill that must be experienced. Howling Dog Tours offer that thrilling experience coupled with friendly and experienced guides and staff. All parties—including families—are welcome!

Backcountry Skiing

Get adventurous and experience spectacular Rockies skiing as it was meant to be—away from groomed trails and busy resorts. Skiing the fresh, natural powder of the backcountry is the quintessential Rockies experience. Yamnuska Mountain Adventures offer excellent backcountry skiing services. Expert guides provide an intimate knowledge of the Canmore backcountry and can, if necessary, provide everything from food to ski rentals. A wide variety of packages and trips are available and are tailored to suit your skiing pace, so there’s something for everyone!

Ice Climbing

A gripping experience (literally), ice climbing is a must-try activity in Canmore, which is also offered by Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. Ice climbing can also provide an unforgettable experience for everyone from experienced adrenaline junkies to complete novices. You’ll fall in love with this incomparable winter activity. And while climbing, don’t forget to pause and take in the view—some of the best views of the Rockies can be had from here!

While taking advantage of Alberta’s winter wonderland this year, be sure to book your accommodation at the Pocaterra Inn. With a wide range of rooms, quality amenities and a stunning view of the Canadian Rockies, you’ll be glad you did!
