Weather & Climate

The weather in the Canadian Rockies in the winter can range from comfortably cool to very cold. The first snow generally begins to fall in November.

Banff and the Bow Valley occasionally receive a weather pattern called a “Chinook,” where warm winds produce spring like temperatures that can last for a matter of days or even weeks.

The following chart of average temperatures in Banff will help you to prepare for your tour.
