With its late-season snow and view of the Rocky Mountains, April is the perfect time to visit Canmore, Alberta. The spring break crowds thin out and high season rates ease up. Though it’s a sleepy mountain town at heart, Canmore is fast becoming a year-round retreat for sporty weekend warriors and outdoor aficionados alike. It was the star backdrop for the Oscar-winning film The Revenant, and interestingly enough, boasts more Olympic athletes per capita than anywhere else in Canada. When Friday rolls around, those in the know visit from neighbouring cities so they can decompress, dine and move.
