Come to Banff National Park for Winter Fun, Take in an NHL Game in Nearby Calgary
What’s probably the one word most associated with Canada? Besides “eh,” we mean. Yes, that’s right: hockey.
Now, around Banff, when we’re not playing hockey, we like to watch it. When it comes to the National Hockey League, naturally we root for Flames of nearby Calgary. But we of course appreciate all our hockey teams, even those from across the border — in fact it’s not uncommon to find professional hockey players and teams hanging out in Banff on off days during the season (there’s not better place to relax).
If you want to take in a game while you’re visiting Banff National Park and the Canadian Rockies, it’s relatively easy to do; Calgary is only about an hour and a half away from Banff via the Trans Canadian Highway (Highway 1).
We suggest you let the folks at Banff Travel arrange your trip down to Calgary; their NHL package includes your Flames ticket, round-trip transportation with drop-off and pick-up at your hotel (in either Banff or Canmore), onboard guide, and a souvenir Calgary Flames hockey puck. Games run through April 9 2011 for the 2010-2011 season.
And if you are one of the officials from Game 6 of the 2004 Stanley Cup and you happen to be up here in Banff … um … you might not want to mention that fact around here. We have long memories. Go Flames!
