Advice for Winter Tours in Canada

If you intend to select a winter tour which is weather dependent, such as a Banff Helicopter Scenic Flight, book earlier in your stay in case the initial tour is cancelled due to weather, then there is still time to reschedule.

Most lift ski passes have grace days, so you don't have to ski consecutive days for your entire stay. This means that on your day off, you are able to take a tour without losing a ski day.

Some tours book up further in advance than others such as the Banff Ice Hockey Tours. If you have a limited amount of time as to when you can take a tour, book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We are in the mountains which probably means that we are at a higher elevation than you are use to. Don't overexert yourself on any of the tours or activities and drink plenty of water - this will make for a more enjoyable stay.

Dress appropriately for the tours or activities as being cold is not much fun. If you are unsure what outdoor winter clothing to wear, just ask!

Make sure you take out adequate Travel Insurance to protect yourself against unforeseen circumstances. Travel Insurance can protect you for medical accidents and trip interruption and cancellation. Receiving medical treatment in Canada is expensive so taking out coverage is a must. Travel Insurance can be easily purchased HERE.
