Things To Do

Crystal clear blue skies and our gorgeous snow-capped peaks form the backdrop for your epic and unforgettable vacation. In summer, reel in a rainbow trout, wind through our trails from the saddle of your ATV, or let a horse show you the way — however you decide to travel through our valley, you’re certain to create a memory around every turn.

Whether your ideal winter vacation involves launching yourself down a mountain in search of the freshest, deepest powder, or cutting figure eights into a frozen pond, we have it all right here in Valemount. And we have snow — oceans of it. The snow starts falling in November and keeps falling until mid-April and beyond. With an average base of 1,400 centimetres (46 feet) at 1,800 metres, we have—without question—some of the best terrain for winter sports in the country. So get out, let the mountains move you.
