To start, we hired quality mountain bikes from Gear Up Mountain Sports in the main street - at very good rates incl helmets etc. They also showed us many tracks and options to get to the centre which made the ride even more fantastic. When you get to the centre, you can just ride the various trails (dirt, road etc)... More

This area is for training of Olympic and those wishing to be area. The area is not for bear sighting and those seeking a bear sighting are not educated in the local environment or in the SERIOS safety aspects and personal danger to the HUMAN. There is the target range where kids as young as 7 are shooting at a... More

The Nordic center is a great place to visit, summer or winter. If you like to cross country ski, that's the place to do it. In the summer, the trails are great for biking, even for younger children. The trails are well kept, and wide enough that it is easy to pass hikers in the area. There are numerous turns... More

We only had a few hours for disc golf and wished we'd had a lot more time. It's a crazy golf course where you'll get a great work out just walking from hole to hole. This was one of the highlights for my kids. This place is cool!

My son and I spent a day mountain biking on trails at the Nordic Centre and it was a blast. The trails are perfectly designed for you to have a fun, roller coaster like ride. Stay off your brakes and enjoy the angled banks, turns and the occasional obstacle. A great time.

We had a great time mountain biking here. Lots of trails. Make sure you pay attention or you will be on a difficult trial quick!!! I know from experience!!! Lol. Anyways it's a good spot to work off all the food the towns offer. Kid friendly and you can rent everything you need

Visit the information centre for maps and advice. Trails of all levels of difficulty are readily available and well marked. You can ride from there all the way to Banff, take a combination of trails to make your cycle as difficult or easy, as long or short as you like. There is a small cafe in the Info Center. Can...
