There’s no better time to elevate your spirits in Alberta’s amazing Rocky Mountains than when the powder is fresh, the resorts are humming and the hot chocolate feels that much warmer going down. Here’s a quick guide of some memorable experiences you can have in the best places to visit in Alberta during winter.


Some destinations become world famous for a reason. Banff is home to some of the most beautiful natural scenery in not just Alberta or Canada, but the entire planet.
