To help stop the spread in Banff, please see items below:

Banff Town Council added a number of measures through bylaw that came into effect Thursday (Dec. 3) at noon:

  • The mandatory mask bylaw has expanded to cover more of the downtown area and all of Banff Avenue - masks must be worn outside. Bandanas, scarves and neck tubes do not qualify as masks. See map at https://banff.ca/COVIDmasks
    • This adds to the existing requirement for masks to be worn inside all publicly accessible buildings.
  • The Province of Alberta has authorized Banff Community Peace Officers to monitor and enforce the provincial public health orders. Town bylaw officers are assisting RCMP in patrolling and enforcing provincial orders.

  • You will need to keep a distance of two metres when you encounter other visitors. Please be ready to step to the side if need be to maintain distance.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, and make use of hand sanitizer where available. 
  • Most importantly, if you’re feeling unwell, please stay home.

We highly recommend pre-booking tours, activities and rentals to both avoid disappointment and minimize in person contact. All attractions have a lower capacity than normal and therefore spaces sell out faster. Each activity / tour has its own cancellation policy so please check with us when booking.

All of the tours and activities you book with us all follow specific COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe.  We are constantly updating practices based off local, state/provincial and federal organizations recommendations and requirements.

In regard to our winter rental fleet, all equipment is well cleaned and sanitized before each use. We ask for contact details for tracing purposes and have limited capacity in our store to create space and room for social distancing. Our staff wear masks and have plexi barriers for performing transactions. We ask you respect our employee's space and also wear a mask while in our store. We also ask that you follow all of the Government of Alberta requirements during your visit.
