Canmore Kananaskis: We live it, you’ll love it

Karen Fennell Posted In: Posted On: October 23, 2018

There aren’t many places in this world that you can experience 365 days of adventure through the four seasons. In Canmore Kananaskis you sure can! This fall, take a 360 tour of this 360 destination.

Fall started off like a lion and Canmore Kananaskis embraced the early snowfall and below zero temperatures, with locals quick to dub the current month “Octsnowber” or “Snowtober”, and happily grabbing some early season turns at choice areas in Kananaskis. The collision of larch season and winter was beautiful to behold but startling to our immune systems, which weren’t quite ready for the change in season to be so drastic. Their dismay with the early onset of sub-zero temps and a snowstorm that blanketed the Rocky Mountain peaks and valley floor in Canmore Kananaskis with snow was soon replaced with sighs of relief as warmer temperatures, which are more normal for this time of the year, returned. The cycle has already begun, however, and Can-Kan residents are packing away summer shorts and sundresses and in turn pulling out comfy knits, ski boots and ski gear, as well as winter tires. Hiking boots and poles will be the last items packed away for next season, as there is still plenty of hiking, among other adventures and activities, to be had. 

The ski resorts have yet to open, but your spirit is still craving adventure. Take a 360-degree tour of Canmore Kananaskis and discover something new; from award-winning festivals, world-class mountain sports, to unique shopping, and remarkable dining experiences. Canmore Kananaskis provides swift access to wilderness and mountain landscapes that support the best mountain lifestyle; one full of activity and wonder. 

Take the life of the ‘True Canmorite’ for example - gleeful yips as they wake up and see a fresh blanket of snow with ears perking as it is announced that 20-60cm is still on the way. Fat bikes, snowshoes, and ski touring gear is pulled out of storage (which was squirreled away only mere months ago for some) and weekend, after work,  or dawn patrol plans are made. Following the activity of choice, you will find them retiring with their crew to one of the handful of local breweries with beers on tap that sure do pack a punch and satisfy the craving for carbs your body generally has after an exciting new adventure. 

The best thing about living a local in Canmore Kananaskis? Adventure is waiting literally right outside your doorstep. Rent a fat bike and head up to the Canmore Nordic Centre, check in at Elevation Place for a few hours of indoor climbing complete with a hot soak or steam afterwards, explore the local shops with Adventure Hub, set off and explore beautiful Kananaskis for a day on one of the plethora of day hikes and let your body and mind relax after an exhilarating day with some comfort food and drinks among friends at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Canmore. After an excitement-filled day, all there is left to do is dine on the excellent variety of cuisine you can find within walking distance of your hotel. 

One thing is for sure here in Canmore Kananaskis; there is something for everyone, and perhaps the best part is that our backyard is closer than you think!
