Start of Winter
It’s November 1st and Halloween is officially over. We have all switched into “winter mode” and I know what you’re thinking, the first day of winter isn’t until December 21st!!!
In Banff, we start thinking about winter almost as soon as it’s over. Not so patiently waiting for the ski hills to reopen so we can hit the slopes. Maybe you don’t like skiing or snowboarding; maybe you don’t even like winter and snow. Living in a town that typically has winter conditions from the beginning of November until mid May, you have to find the joy in the cold, snowy conditions. Sure it’s beautiful, any landscape featuring a winter wonderland is easy on the eyes but what else is there to do in Banff during the winter season?
With an array of activities that aren’t skiing or snowboarding, we have something for everyone! Personally, I’m not one to hit the ski hills; I thought when I moved to Banff, I would learn how to snowboard and it would be such a blast! That was 5 years ago and I have yet to strap my feet into a board. “Maybe this year”, seems to be what I tell myself each year when the snow starts to fall. Even though I haven’t learned how to snowboard yet, I’ve partaken in my fair share of winter activities and the list continues to grow each year.
Check out our blog each Wednesday where I will feature a different winter activity that you can experience this winter in Banff National Park!
