There’s so much to love about Alberta’s North – land of boreal forests, stellar night-sky viewing, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, skating and ice fishing, too. You’ll want to come back again and again because this is the place to spark your love of the outdoors and indulge your winter-loving Canadian spirit.
It’s a good thing that winter is long here because it gives you lots of time to do things like:
Bundle up in an ice fishing hut (hot cocoa in hand!) waiting to reel in the big one on one of Northern Alberta’s many lakes.
Wrap yourself in your favourite parka, toque, mitts (and maybe a blanket, too), grab a lawn chair and sit outside with as steaming mug of what pleases you, and be wowed by the dancing Northern Lights show.
Get your skis or snowboard ready for every kind of run from groomers to steeps at one of the many ski destinations - including the world-famous Marmot Basin in Jasper.
Alberta’s northern communities have miles and miles of cross-country ski trails where you can escape for a day into the silence and beauty of the boreal forest or a long a river valley.
This is the winter for you to experience adventure across Alberta’s north. Don’t forget to tell us all about your adventures using the tag, #SkiNorthAB.
