Top Tips for Wet Weather in Banff

ShareThis




So the scenery is outstanding and the mountains are breathtaking, but you can’t see any of it due to the low cloud coverage! Yes, even Banff get’s its rainy days. But hey, don’t worry about it. There are some great indoor activities you can occupy yourself with until the clouds part and Alberta’s famous blue skies reappear.

Bowling
Little know to a lot of people, is the 5 pin bowling at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. Located in the Bowling Centre across from the hotel, there are 4 lanes available for everyone to use! And if you have to wait for a lane, keep yourself occupied with the arcades, pool table, lounge and bar.


Indoor Climbing
Based at the Sally Borden Recreational Facility at The Banff Centre, this world-class climbing gym will keep you occupied and active! Admission fee also includes use of the rest of the fitness facilities!


Indoor Waterslides

Of course, how could we NOT mention our very own indoor waterslides! Free to hotel guests and an admission fee to outside patrons, we welcome everyone to come and use the only waterslides in Banff!


Ice Skating
At Banff’s only indoor ice facility, this is a vibrant space year round for hockey, skating and other activities.


Movies
Banff has its very own movie theater showing all the new releases. Matinee showings are available and it’s a great way to pass a couple hours.


Museums

Take your pick from:
- Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, detailing how the First Nations people of North America lived
- Banff Park Museum National Historic Site of Canada which boasts a collection over 5000 natural history specimens detailing the modern natural history of the park.
- The Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies with exhibits exploring the history and culture of the area.



And that's not to mention the great shopping, art galleries, coffee shops, amazing restaurants or cozy hotel rooms with fireplaces!


If all else fails, grab those waterproofs and head out hiking; its only a bit of water!
