Banff SnowDays Winter Festival

Runs until Wednesday, January 25th, 2023 (See all dates)

8:00am - 10:00pm
SnowDays Winter Festival, Banff and Lake Louise

SnowDays is a celebration of all things winter in Banff. Check out all the activities and events held January 18-29, 2023, from Banff and Lake Louise Tourism


Taking place downtown on Banff Avenue on January 28, the skijoring event will see 16 teams from Skijor Canada consisting of a horse, rider, and slider will take to the track, showcasing skills, speed, and style on a 160-metre straightaway at speeds of up to 50 km/hr. Talk about some high-speed action!

While in town you can check out giant snow sculptures throughout the streets of downtown Banff and then head to Lake Louise to lace up your skates and take a whirl around the lake for an iconic Canadian moment. If you are an early riser, we recommend hitting the ice for sunrise. It’s truly stunning.

Keep your eye out for something new this year — ice sculptures will also be around to dazzle you from January 21 to 29.

For some family-friendly festivities, hit up the SnowDays Play Zone on weekday evenings and weekends, where you’ll find exhilarating activities and hands-on fun for all ages.
