How to plan a winter trip to Banff

The jagged peaks and alpine lakes of Banff National Park fill 2,500 square miles of western Alberta. The area, which encompasses the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, along with three ski resorts and some of Canada’s most rugged backcountry terrain, is both surreal and irresistible.
