Magical 6-Day Banff Winter Itinerary: Snow-Filled Adventure

Nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park, this is a perfect mix of majestic mountain peaks, ski resorts, adventure opportunities, and lively winter celebrations.

Banff will leave you in awe and have you chuckling inside because you’ve stumbled upon something you didn’t know you could find.

Day 1 – Discovering SnowDays

When you’re on Banff Avenue, lined with historic architecture and the towering Cascade Mountain, it’s hard not to stop and stare.

Day 2 – Lake Louise Ski Resort

This mountain that’s part of the SkiBig3 collection of resorts is big and epic. As you carve your way down, you’ll have an unbelievable cheek-to-cheek smile, that’ll be hard to rub off.

Day 3 – Mount Norquay and Fat Bikes

You will have the thrill of your life snow tubing, you’ll also get to pedal through more of the quintessential Canadian mountain town you haven’t seen yet.

Day 4 – Banff Sunshine Slopes and Snowshoes

Out of all 3 mountains in the SkiBig3 portfolio, this one might have the nicest snow, because it is in fact, the highest altitude ski resort in Canada.

Skijoring is usually near the end of the SnowDays festival and it is a fitting finale that’s packed with highlight reel stunts and a thrill for anyone that hasn’t seen this in-person before.

Day 5 – Skijoring and Banff Gondola

Day 6 – Final Day in Banff

A fitting way to bid farewell to Banff would be on the steamy bubbles atop Mount Royal Hotel. Grab your robe and head up to the rooftop and take it all in, one last time.
