Fat Bik­ing

Where Canadian Rockies - - HOT ACTIVITIES -

Bikes with fat tires built to cruise snowy trails are in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar win­ter toys, but they can dam­age cross-country ski tracks, so the Can­more Nordic Cen­tre (p 48) has des­ig­nated and groomed trails specif­i­cally for snow sea­son cy­cling. First-time riders can try the Ge­orge­town and Run­dle Fore­bay trails. In Banff, try Tun­nel Moun­tain (Map 3, 9N) or Sun­dance Canyon (Map 3, 20A) trails. Bike rental shops are on p 52. –AA snow­shoe-

On a Rock­ies Heli Canada (p 51) Heli-Snow­shoe Ad­ven­ture, soar above snow­capped peaks for 20 min­utes to a re­mote lo­ca­tion. Spend an hour and en­joy­ing hot choco­late and Bai­ley’s (a pic­nic lunch is avail­able). Other heli-filled fun op­tions in­clude ro­man­tic pri­vate tours and a heli-dog sled­ding pack­age. –Olivia Grecu
