Banff in Winter | Ultimate Guide for Your Winter Wonderland Trip

Gatorade blue water, mountain peaks, and endless adventure make Banff National Park a special place to visit.

And while some folks save this bucket list destination for the summer months, visiting Banff in winter can be equally, if not more, special.

With a heavy dusting of snow, it becomes a winter wonderland that’ll  make your heart sing—or freeze; please dress warm (kidding).

Winter in Banff National Park is from December through March. During that time, you can expect lots of snow and cold temperatures!
