As a family, I have taken many ski getaways, and have learned over the years how to plan a trip that will really stand out as our winter highlight. My suggestions below are the consistent top three factors for my family’s ski weekends success.
The High Rockies Trail is a newly-completed 80-kilometre long multi-use trail outside of Canmore. The trail starts at the popular Goat Creek Parking Lot on the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Lakes Trail and ends on the Alberta/BC border at Elk Pass in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, paralleling the Spray Lakes Road until you reach the Lower Kananaskis Lake.
Ski resorts are quickly becoming year-round destinations for adventure and fun. This summer, families can visit 10 different resorts spread across southern Alberta and the BC Rockies, trying everything from a thrilling rollercoaster ride down the hill to lift-accessed hiking through alpine meadows.
