Nordic Ski the Canadian Rockies of Lake Louise and Canmore

Nordic day skiing options are almost unlimited when based in the Lake Louise and Canmore areas of the Canadian Rockies, and the ski tracks and trails take you to beautiful alpine lakes, stunning mountain scenery, or through peaceful forests, on a variety of trail types.

A different day – a different park!   Options for cross-country skiing adventures within an hour’s drive of Canmore or Lake Louise include the Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in the Kananaskis,  Yoho National Park, Banff National Park and the Canmore Nordic Center Provincial Park.  There are track skiing, skate skiing and skier-groomed trails to choose from, with comfortable lodging and good food to help you recover for your next day’s adventure.  Classic Canadian Rockies scenes motivate you on each day’s 10-20 mile ski on well-marked trails, some with world-class groomed tracks.
