To find out more about skating season, visit the Calgary's Child Website and read the story I wrote for them titled, Skating Season in Banff. This story covers where to skate in the Banff, Canmore, and Kananaskis areas. It covers both natural ponds and lakes as well as maintained rinks such as the lovely pond at Kananaskis Village or the cleared section of Lake Louise.

Skating is one of the easiest family-friendly ways to enjoy winter. It's affordable, and rentals are easy to find. If your family doesn't skate yet, maybe this is the winter to learn. :)
PLEASE NOTE THAT JOHNSON LAKE MAY BE CLOSED FOR THE 2016/2017 WINTER SEASON. PLEASE CONFIRM ACCESS WITH A VISITOR CENTRE BEFORE HEADING OUT TO SKATE.
