Banff | Lake Louise Winter Incentives
It may be Winter but these Banff and Lake Louise Incentives are Hot.
Banff and Lake Louise are just the destinations that often comes to mind when you think about Canada’s natural beauty. Full of mountain views, sparkling lakes, and wildlife, it’s not surprising that this park and surrounding sights are at the top of almost every incentive winner’s “must win” list. As naturally stunning as Banff and Lake Louise are in spring, summer and fall, these mountain destinations are truly remarkable in winter and rewarding top performers with an immersive winter experience here is gaining popularity. So much so, that this cool winter destination is suddenly hot.
More than just beauty, each is also full of adventure, culture, and charm, and just two hour scenic transfer from Calgary. Less crowded and more affordable come winter, there’s plenty for your top performers to see and do once the snow flies. Here are some of our favourites:
Helicopter above the peaks of the Rockies. Touch down for a sip of sparkling wine. Just another day at the office.
Spa, or ski; the eternal question. Here, you don’t need to choose.
Build corporate culture and team spirit in the most Canadian of ways: a friendly game of shinny (hockey) on a frozen lake.
Celebrate at the Summit - Mount Norquay ski lodge or the summit of Sulphur Mountain can both put you eye-to-eye with soaring eagles, high above the townsite. Each the perfect blank canvass to activate your corporate branding against a sea of mountains.
Explore a frozen canyon on the Johnston Canyon Ice Walk.
Ski the Big 3. Legendary Lake Louise, with four mountains and over 4,000 acres of terrain there’s plenty of powder-filled glades, gullies, and back bowls to choose from. Afterward, arrange a torchlight dinner and Aprés party. Just 10-minutes from downtown Banff, Mt. Norquay is the only night-skiing resort in Banff|Lake Louise. Banff Sunshine, the third in the Big 3 sits on the Continental Divide and features more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain, ranging from gentle beginner runs all the way up to extreme big mountain runs.
Cap off the day, or kick off the night at Wild Bill’s Legendary Saloon — a fabled Banff institution. Reserve a private salon, or buy-out the whole place, this is one of the best party spots in town.
Spot wildlife in their natural habitat. Banff National Park is not only Canada’s largest and oldest national park, but it is the traditional habitat for a variety of wildlife including California Long-horn sheep, elk, moose, bears and more. While some are hibernating during winter, others are frequently out and about and ready for their close-up.
Cozy up for a sleigh-ride along the snow-packed shores of Lake Louise.
Strap on some blades for a spin around Lake Louise’s frozen surface - surrounded by glaciers and glimmering ice carvings it’s a magical setting.
Celebrate with your team learning the two-step at the Brewster Dance Barns in Lake Louise, or at the MountView Barbecue in Banff.
Snowshoe fresh powder on a mountain guided snowshoe safari, or sign up for the night-owl session to stargaze while exploring.
