Who needs fun in the sun when you’ve got a winter playground like this?
Build a snowman between snowmobile rides and skating laps and more!
Grab the snowmobile and head just past Bragg Creek to Highway 66. There you’ll find some of the area’s best sledding trails. Open from January 1 through March 31, you’ll enjoy more than 200 kilometres of premium sledding trails, all flanked by the most scenic nature in the region.
Remember, this area has avalanches. Never head out on your snowmobile without first checking the Kananaskis avalanche forecast for the most updated conditions.
Snowmobiles are allowed on the following trails: McLean Creek, Sibbald Flats, Cataract Creek, Powderface trail linking McLean Creek & Sibbald Flats, and Big Elbow Loop.
The Sibbald area is open from January to the end of March and is a very popular spot.
Powderface Trail is open from December through April.
Elbow Valley can be enjoyed from January through March and in years of high snowfall, makes for a very exciting ride.
Sledding not your style?
Then check out the free public skating available at the Community Centre. Our full-boarded, lighted arena is equipped with nets and a parking lot, so invite the whole family, strap on the skates, unplug from those devices, and enjoy one of winter’s most romantic and fun sports.
Cap off your day of winter adventures with a relaxing sleigh ride. Several of the area’s service providers, including Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures, and Boundary Ranch offer enchanting winter sleigh and/or wagon rides. You’ll go back in time to when young people dated during the cold winter months by joining their beau in a cutter – a sleigh built for two. These days, sweethearts have more options, but nothing says winter like a big sleigh or wagon with room for all your family and friends!
