Where to go Tobogganing with Kids in Canmore and Banff
Cross tobogganing off your winter adventure list on your next visit to Canmore or Banff! Updated January 2020
Tobogganing is one of our favourite (free) ways to get outside when we’re spending the weekend in Canmore or Banff. Bring toboggans with you from home and it’s a free activity for the entire family, plus it helps to run off some of that winter energy that comes from being inside a hotel room or condo all weekend long.

Canmore Nordic Centre
Bring your sleds to the Nordic Centre in Canmore and toboggan on the different hills, suitable for little kids, older kids and even adults. With plenty of parking available too.
A hill that’s got varying lengths, this one’s perfect for little kids and big kids alike. Depending where you start from on the hill, you can get a nice fast slide down the hill, or a shorter ride (for younger kids). Located in a park, there’s a near by playground, and an easy location to find, close to town, the park is gorgeous at dusk.
