If you’ve ever had the privilege of visiting Western Canada, you’ve probably passed through Alberta. Don’t let its famous neighbour overshadow this beautiful province, Alberta holds a variety of landscapes and environments perfect for both nature and city lovers.
Whether it’s summer or winter, Alberta has more than enough opportunities for outdoor fun. Banff National Park, located in central Alberta, is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. The park is located right where the Rocky Mountains begin. From mountain peaks to the Bow Valley, it’s hard to find better scenery anywhere else.
Banff has more than just beautiful scenery, it is also a favourite destination for skiers and snowboarders. Sunshine Mountain and Lake Louise Ski Resort allow winter athletes to ski on some of the largest mountains in the world. Regardless of your skill level, these resorts have hills that will suit your needs. Both beginners and advanced skiers will feel comfortable, and have a lot of fun.
When the snow melts, the ski runs turn into hiking trails with all levels of difficulty. You can find smaller mountains for short hikes, or large mountains that will take you a few days. All of which can be found no more than 10 minutes from the town of Banff.
After a day of hiking or skiing, you are going to need a hot tub. No matter where you’re staying, you won’t be far from one. After all, nothing fits better than mountains and a hot tub.
When you need to take a break from the activity, you won’t be bored with the scenery available throughout Alberta. Whether you’re in Banff, Jasper or Alberta’s Badlands, it’s easy to get lost in the view. Find a look-out point, sit down and relax while looking at the Rocky Mountains or desert-like rolling hills.
Nature isn’t all that Alberta has to offer. Edmonton and Calgary are two of Canada’s biggest cities with lots of entertainment available to residents and guests. If you love sports, you can watch the Calgary Flames (hockey) or Stampeders (football) play. University sports are very popular in Calgary. The Calgary Dinos have teams in a variety of sports including hockey, football, basketball, soccer and track & field, giving you plenty of opportunities to watch young athletes play.
While in Edmonton, you can catch an Edmonton Oilers or Eskimos game. You can also visit one of the largest malls in North America; the West Edmonton Mall.
Entertainment is not all these cities have to offer. Both cities have very high employment rates. Due to Alberta’s location on top of vast oil supplies, there are plenty of job opportunities. Alberta plays a key role in driving Canada’s economy. You may find yourself in Alberta sooner than you think, given the vast opportunity available in the province.
No matter where you find yourself, you’ll never be too far from a hot tub, or a place to purchase a cover. We proudly sell hot tub covers for Alberta residents.
