Get Active This Winter

Ice Skating in Central Park

In many places throughout the country, winter is a time to lock yourself indoors and camp out by the fire until the warm weather returns. However, we encourage you to do the exact OPPOSITE. A lot happens all around town- holiday performances, charity events, professional sport games (hockey, basketball, NFL playoffs), fresh powder for mountain activities, film festivals, and New Year celebrations. Our best guess to find these types of events are local community magazines. Keep an eye out while you’re walking around town or passing by a coffee shop. Whether you’re staying home for the holidays or traveling, we wish you the best holiday season with your family and friends. And remember, stay active… It truly makes for the best memories!

Winter Getaway: Best Kept Secret

Winter Getaway: Our Best Kept Secret

Towering peaks and stunning glacier-fed lakes, Banff National Park is an incredible place to be during the winter time in Alberta, Canada. The town of Banff is nestled high in the Canadian Rockies and attracts outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. There is heli-skiing and snowboarding, dog sledding, ice fishing, snow mobile tours, hot springs, tubing, winter festivals, and the list goes on and on. However, there is one gem that we think sets this town apart from other winter destinations… and that is the picturesque Lake Louise.

According to Banff National Park, Lake Louise has become symbolic of the quintessentially Canadian mountain scene. As you can see in the photo above, there is something special about this alpine lake and sparkling blue waters. It is no surprise that once the lake freezes over during winter, visitors flock for some of the best ice skating in the world. In fact, CNN Travel highlights Banff’s Lake Louise as one of the Top 10 world’s most beautiful ice skating rinks.
