There’s a whole lot to do in Kanaskis and we want to make sure you get the most of it!
We just going to come right out and say it: it is COLD. It’s been an especially cold winter in the Canadian Rockies, to say the least. Though many of us are dreaming of warmer days and starting to plan for spring and summer adventures, winter is here to stay for a little while longer.
Rather than hibernating, we want to help you face and embrace the remaining winter months in the best way possible: unique and scenic winter adventures. From moonlight snowshoe tours to awesome programming at Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, we’ve got you covered out here in Kananaskis Country. Here are 7 things to keep you busy this month in Kananaskis:
A Stargazing Snowshoe Tour
Join Kananaskis Outfitters for an unforgettable snowshoe tour through the Kananaskis Forest. When the sun goes down the forest comes alive with outstanding sights and sounds you may not notice in the light of day. An expert guide will lead you through the trails, pointing out animal tracks and traces along the way. In addition, you’ll learn about the awe-inspiring spread of stars that unfolds above you. See Kananaskis in a new light, learn some fun and interesting facts to share with your friends, and enjoy a unique experience in the wild. This low-impact hike is perfect for all ages (12+) and abilities. Click here to learn more book your tour.
The Great Canadian Sugar Rush

Rent Fat Bikes or Go on a Fat Biking Tour
If you love biking, don’t let a little snow stop you! Fat biking is an awesome way to experience your favourite two-wheeled sport year-round. Kananaskis Outfitters offers a Fat Bike Frozen Waterfall Tour that is the perfect way to experience fat biking and the gorgeous K-Country at the same time. If you’re a seasoned biker or fat biker already, come rent bikes and take off on your own. The tour does require some biking experience. Trust us, you’re going to be as obsessed as we are with fat biking the second you hop on. Click here for tour details.

Go Skating or Play a Game of Hockey.
Nestled within the cozy and welcoming Kananaskis Village sits a small skating pond perfect for lacing up and enjoying some relaxing and enchanting winter laps. You can rent skates at Kananaskis Outfitters. If you’re looking for something a little more fast-paced, you can also rent hockey sticks and head out to the rink to play shinny! No matter what your skating style is, we can hook you up with everything you need.
Spend an Afternoon Tobogganing
If you’re just looking for a fun afternoon in the snow, why not grab your toboggans and head out before the snow melts? Tobogganing is a blast for everyone and anyone brave enough to hop on. Due to potential avalanche risk, we only recommend the toboggan hill in the village
Go Cross-Country Skiing in Breathtaking Surroundings
Cross-Country skiing is an excellent way to get your outdoor cardio in while there’s snow on the ground. Whether you’re looking for a guided trip, need to rent your gear or want to venture out solo with your own gear, Kananaskis Outfitters has the info, gear, and experience to give you the exact adventure you’re in the market for. You won’t believe how still and silent the Kananaskis wild feels once you’ve got a few kms behind you. Click here for tour info.
At Kananaskis Outfitters we are committed to getting people outside exploring all year around. We’ll help remove any barriers standing between you and the great outdoors while giving you exactly what you need to try something different and have a blast in Kananaskis.
