Community Novelty Races

Join us to celebrate the spirit of winter with these snow-themed races on Banff Avenue.

Community Novelty Races were a big part of the Banff Winter Carnival that launched in 1917, and will be re-introduced into SnowDays in 2020 as both a celebration of our history and of our mountain culture.

Watch these wacky and wild races on Banff Avenue from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

  • Canoe Races – Teams go head to head in a round-robin format as they “skoot” their canoe (one leg in the canoe, one leg out) across a 100m snow-course.
  • Fat Bike Skijoring – One fat bike rider pulls one ski or snowboard rider across a 100m snow-course.
  • Reverse Dog-Sledding – Teams pull their four-legged friends on sleds across a 100m snow-course.
  • Three-Legged Snowshoe Race – One grown-up and one child team up in this wintery three-legged race across a 100m snow-course.
