New Years in Canmore is a fun event for all ages, with both family friendly events and lively late night parties on offer. Of course many people coming to Canmore for 2019-20 New Years will want to ski or snowboard, and with Norquay, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and Nakiska all within easy reach, there are plenty of options for hitting the slopes.
Most hotels and accommodations in Canmore do not offer specific New Years packages as such, but you can bet that they are all open throughout the holiday period. New Years is a busy time in Canmore and you can expect hotel accommodation to fill up, so make sure you book your lodging as early as possible.
