Adventures And Wildlife
Canmore and its surroundings are just amazing when it comes to adventures! In the summer you can do just about anything your heart desires, such as horseback riding, river kayaking, white-water rafting, canoeing, rock climbing, hiking, golfing, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, plus so much more! In the winter, you can go downhill and cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, dog sledding, ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling, sleigh-riding, and taking a relaxing soak in the Banff Natural Hot Springs.
The wildlife in and near the Canadian Rockies is absolutely astounding! It's home to a wide variety of large animals, including the Grizzly and Black Bears, Elk, Moose, Lynx, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Cougars, Wolves, and Bison. It's also home to many smaller creatures such as hoary marmots, pikas, beavers, ground squirrels, and several types of birds, from bald eagles to endangered harlequin ducks.
The best times of year to visit the Banff area if you're looking to view lots of different type of wildlife are in early spring (April and May), and in the fall (Sept. and October). Be sure to bring your binoculars for the best viewing!
Spectacular scenery, fresh mountain air, and an abundance of activities to choose from, in addition to being only a 1 hour drive from a major city, make Canmore a convenient, picturesque town for summer and winter vacations.
Less touristy than the nearby town of Banff, Canmore's relaxed and casual atmosphere, combined with upscale art galleries, restaurants and shopping, is the ideal setting for a mountain escape.

This condo has everything, location, cleanliness, easy to deal with owner and an ideal base for visiting the mountain parks (park pass included in rental!!) Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and will certainly use it again ourselves
The McKenzie mountainside ski condo was awesome! It was warm, cozy and had the most beautiful view of the mountains from the back patio! We loved the location, so close to everything, downtown, the restaurants, elevation place and three different grocery stores! The unit was clean, well stocked and we especially love the fireplace! We have stayed in many different ski houses over the years and this was one of the very best! We had 2 showers and laundry going at the same time and never ran out of hot water. We would definitely stay there again and hope to come back at some point in the summer to hike, See more of the parks and enjoy that beautiful area again! Thank you Leanne for sharing your very special Place in the mountains! Sherry Harris, Bentonville Arkansas Jim, Craig and Max from Washington DC.We loved our visit and your condo!
This property was incredible! It checked off all of our boxes, and even the boxes we didn't anticipate. I would definitely recommend this property to others, and I would stay there again next time I'm in the area.
