WARNING: The following post may induce immediate wanderlust.

When awe-inspiring scenery, champagne powder snow and truly expansive ski areas come together, beautiful moments happen. In Banff & Lake Louise, this beauty doesn’t fade throughout the year – it morphs into a new incarnation of awe with the coming of each season.

So whether you’re travelling across borders, or you already call Canada home, these Instagram photos, captured under Banff National Park’s winter spell, will inspire you to visit this snow season.

        Hi Beth,

        Thanks for your feedback – good point! This time we focused on the most stand-out winter photos we could find, but we love fat biking and would love to include a shot of the action next time we do a similar blog!

        Here’s to a great winter!

      Hi Ian,

      I think the only solution might be a visit – Banff and Lake Louise are even more beautiful in real life!

      We hope you have a great winter, wherever you will be!

    Wildlife and mountain shots nice, but not skier or skater, maybe a sled run.

      For sledding/tobogganing we recommend the slope behind the Fairmont Banff Springs, it’s got a nice steady pitch. They have a tent with a fire pit and hot chocolate, and there’s a skating rink next to it as well. Insider tip: it gets the best sun around 11-1pm. Other non-ski/skate activities we can recommend include walking along the Bow River, Cave & Basin historical site, Johnson Canyon and Marble Canyon.
