1. Snow tubing at Banff’s closest tubing park
Enjoy the thrill of rocketing down in an inflated tube. Whether you’re experienced on the slopes or have never been skiing, Tubing is a fantastic family and friends activity. Young adventurers at 42” up to the young at heart can try Snow tubing. Norquay’s snow tube park, the first in the Banff area, has a magic carpet and large sliding lanes to go down along with your group of friends or your family. It’s a unique way to enjoy the slopes, and more fun than peanut butter and a dog.
Tubing is also available on night skiing Friday evenings through the holidays.
2. New Beers on Tap and new menu at the World Famous Lone Pine Bar & Restaurant –
Sample beers from local brewers like Banff Ave Brewing Co. or Calgary’s Big Rock Brewing.
The Lone Pine also has a brand new menu with great value and interesting twists on the usual ski area fare. Try the new Bao Chinese Steamed Buns or my personal favourite the tangy Jalapeño Shrimp Gorditas. Or enjoy a steaming hot peppermint Hot Chocolate and get cozy by the fireplace. Open until 9 on Friday evenings for night skiing.
Also, take the bus down only 10 minutes in downtown Banff and keep the Aprés going as long as you want
3. Santa Shreds for Free on Christmas Day –
Join the tradition of ripping up the slopes on Christmas day in a full Santa suit (Elf or Mrs.Clause also accepted), and then ski for free all day! The only catch is you have to have the time of your life.
The multitude of Festive Santa’s make for great memories carving it up on all 4 of our lifts during the holidays.

5. Banff’s best winter sightseeing to 7000 feet at the Cliffhouse Bistro –
