Canmore-Kananaskis Country

Just west of Calgary, the charming town of Canmore is the gateway to the Canadian Rockies for many visitors and Albertans alike. The front range of Kananaskis Country offers up outdoor activities for almost every interest and ability level – from easy forest walks to adrenaline fueled climbs up to Yamnuska Summit. In the winter, the former home of some of the 1988 Olympics comes alive with snow sports for everyone, while those looking for solace can still find it in picturesque backcountry cabins.
