The charms of a quintessential Mountain Christmas are a unique blend of adventure and leisure; bundle up and play in the new dusting of snow outside, or watch it fall as you snuggle up in your cozy cabin. Hop on an enchanting sleigh ride, snowshoe through the incredible mountainscape, breathe deeply under vast, starry skies and share fireside stories over hot cocoa and slices of shortbread. Find fresh terrain skiing Canada’s finest slopes or pamper yourself with a feast at one Banff’s vibrant dining venues.
