SnowDays in Banff!

If winter has you feeling the blues, Banff Lake Louise can fix this and provide you with all sorts of fun, winter activities to get you through!  From January 12th - February 10th, SnowDays is happening in Banff National Park and here is just a small sampling of what you need to check out:

Jan12 / 13 - Mountain Adventure Weekend
*A 40 foot ice climbing wall (gear and instruction are included) at Banff Avenue Square.  This photo was taken today (Jan12) and it just looks incredible!
 *Check out Central Park this weekend; it has been transformed into a true winter playground!  Ski and snowboard instructors are available to teach the basics so that you are comfortable to get out on the mountain!
January 18 - 27 - Ice Magic
*From January 18 - 20, 24 international  ice carvers have 34 hours to sculpt a block of solid ice into an amazing piece of art.  Each piece of ice weighs 300lbs and the theme for 2013 is 'Carve a Song'.    Visit Lake Louise for this amazing experience...there is even a free shuttle from the Village of Lake Louise to the Chateau to avoid parking at the Lake.
*Saturday Jan19 from 1-2pm and then 2-3pm; learn to skate at the downtown Banff skating rink with a local skater who will share the basic skills on how to skate!  Rentals are available at Snowtips and helmets are required.
*Little Chippers Weekend is January 26-27 - this is a family event in Lake Louise where kids are able to learn how to carve ice, play ice mini golf and experience ice tunnels and slides.   The sculptures from Jan18-20 are still on display for all the enjoy ~

Learn to Snowshoe
On January 26 from 1-2pm and 2-3pm; learn to snowshoe in Banff Central Park with a local snowshoeing expert!  Snowshoes are provided for free

These are just a few of many different activities available and I promise that there is something to interest everyone!    For a full schedule, visit
