things to do round Banff in winter for a non-skier

Jump to last reply

Hi all, hope you can help a non-skier to fill in five days in and around Banff come winter.
I have been there and to Lake Louise and as far as Jasper...been through Radium Springs Kimberley and Nelson and out west to Whistler and Vancouver but Im thinking that there's not a lot of outdoor sightseeing coming my way in February or am I wrong?
I love the natural sights but am happy to shop too...so ...what's in store for me whilst my OH is out there playing in the snowfields?
Any bus daytrips I could do? Dont mind going to all the above places again but any new destinations would be great.

Oh ...and about the accommodation. Years ago one summer I stayed at the Banff Inns..the Swiss one and found it to be great lodgings ...about a half hour walk into Banff but I wont want to be driving...so maybe a winter stroll wont be so much fun for me...Im not used to snow...havent seen any since I was 16 and I do feel the cold something dreadful!
Anyone found some cosy lodgings closer or in the village itself?

Any input would be very much appreciated!
