Are you and the whole family headed to the Rockies for one last hurrah before the snow melts? With spring on its way, your time to experience a winter wonderland is running out! Whether your planning for this year or looking ahead to next year (who doesn’t want to have the perfect winter vacation ready to go?!), Banff truly is the ultimate winter playground for adventure enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels. From adrenaline junkies looking to hit the slopes to first-time visitors who want to get to know more about the region via a guided tour or experience soaring panoramas atop the Banff Gondola, there’s no shortage of ways to explore the Canadian wilderness in Banff National Park.
Below, we’ll highlight one of our most cherished winter activities, snow tubing at Mt. Norquay. Read on to learn more!
Fun For Everyone
As every Canadian will tell you, there’s nothing quite like hitting fresh powder after a snowfall with your tube or toboggan and zooming down the nearest hill you can find. As a quintessential part of Canadian childhood that carries over into our adult years, the thrill of picking up speed and shrieking as you bounce over bumps grants memories for decades to come.
For those looking to experience the same kinds of thrills on a far more epic level, Mt. Norquay is home to the largest tubing park in Alberta that makes it the perfect fit for adventure no matter your age or experience level. With groomed runs that remove some of the hazards you might find in unrefined areas, as well as a facility designed for your comfort and safety, Mt. Norquay is located a convenient 5 minutes away from Banff proper and offers 8 full lanes for tubing, which makes it easy for the whole family to spread out and physically distanced as needed. Grab your toque and your tube, and let’s hit the slopes!
More to Explore
Looking to double your fun? Why not go on a thrilling dog-sled adventure, tour Johnston Canyon on an ice walk, or check out the many other winter activities we have available. Grab a (socially distanced) bites in one of the many cafes and dining establishments in and around Banff, including the Sky Bistro that soars over the top atop Sulphur Mountain and is accessible via the Banff Gondola, and enjoy life to the fullest in the Rockies!
