Along with our small group of other adventurous women, disconnect for for a few days. Explore the Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park, and Yoho National Park while experiencing the definition of a winter wonderland.DOG SLEDDING IN THE BOW VALLEY
Mush! Kick off your active winter weekend driving a dog sled with the snowy back drop of the Canadian Rockies! Get hands-on experience assisting the guides in harnessing the dogs and setting up your team. Each sled is shared with equal opportunities to drive the sleds. You’ll warm up next to a campfire with hot beverages and baked goodies while learning more about the role of dog sleds in the Bow Valley.PRIVATE CURLING LESSON IN BANFF
After checking in to our downtown Banff hotel, we stroll over to the local rec center. Here you’ll experience one of Canada’s favorite winter activities: curling! Oh, yeah. We’ll have a private lesson learning about curling and experiencing the excitement of sweeping our brooms to control the speed and direction of our stone across the sheet into the house. We’ll have a pizza party style dinner to celebrate. Adult beverages will be available at the cash bar for purchase.CROSS COUNTRY SKIING IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES
Next up on our winter activities list is traversing the snowy Canadian Rocky landscapes on cross country skis. We’ll start our full day adventure with a lesson learning how to maneuver ourselves with long planks attached to our feet. Once we have the hang of it, we’ll venture out into the wilderness to enjoy the solitude of the trail. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone that you’ll be in one of the most idyllic and undiscovered locations in the Canadian Rockies.SNOWSHOEING IN YOHO NATIONAL PARK
On our third day together, we pack up and don snowshoes to make our way to the Elizabeth Parker backcountry hut in Yoho National Park. Of course, we don’t just hike there. You’re darn skippy, you’ll be staying the night in this idyllic hut situated in an alpine meadow not far from the shores of Lake O’Hara. Just imagine yourself holding a steaming cup of hot cocoa surrounded by snowy mountains. Yes! Relish in the pristine mountain environment and tranquility. Take a night to disconnect and reboot high in the backcountry where there is no Wi-Fi, cell reception, or electricity. The next day is spent trekking back out from our hut and making our way to Calgary.
Phew! What a weekend! Don’t worry, we’ve also worked in some free time for you to explore the town of Banff or relax in the the hot tubs at our Downtown Banff Hotel.
