Look up to the darkened skies in Northern Alberta and there’s a good chance there is a ripple of lights streaking across the sky. The Northern Lights are an awe inspiring sight after a day discovering a new community and/or on the slopes at any of the Northern Alberta snow-filled destinations.
Sure, the sky is fantastic, but the landscape for snow sports is even better. From community hills, where kids roam free to a sprawling mountain resort located within the Canadian Rockies, all these destinations are filled with down-home hospitality and a charm that's unique that can only be found in smaller communities.
Explore the slopes then slow down and explore destinations rich in local legends, Indigenous history and a culinary and craft beer scene. The crew at SnowSeekers has teamed up with an inspirational group of digital storytellers that love to dig in and serve you up treasures from the North. Dive in below to their work and uncover a new kind of awesome this winter. Head north to experience and to #SkiNorthAB.
