Alberta South | Travel & Tourism Information Guide
With its sun-kissed wheatfields and wind-whipped Canadian badlands, Southern Alberta can turn you into a shutter-happy tourist. If its ethereal evening light doesn't seduce you, then its three UNESCO World Heritage Sites just might. Hike or watch wildlife at Waterton Lakes National Park. Downhill ski at Castle Mountain Resort. Peek over a buffalo jump. Watch Mounties perform their legendary Musical Ride. Canoe, mountain bike, horseback ride, fly-fish or snowmobile...through some of the province's loveliest landscapes.
What's wind sift you ask? Let Castle Mountain Ski Resort whisper it amongst its sinks of powder - which float right over your boot tops, and beyond. Yes, this ski resort remains Alberta's hold-out...a pent-up secret for powder hounds.
Take a timeout from the hectic and get back to your rustic roots. Rustle up your family all your cowpoke friends and live life like a cowboy. It's time to ride tall in the saddle as you explore the southern part of the province from a cowboy's point of view. So dust off your denim and giddy up! Your southern home on the range is waiting.
