Record snowfall welcomes all visitors for a variety of winter-themed activities.

Banff National Park visitors seeking romance in the Canadian Rockies are greeted this year with record snowfall at the area's ski and snowboard resorts.

Whether it's a romantic getaway, a family outing or an outdoor challenge, the big snow this season promises great winter fun!

Banff is a year-round destination that offers outstanding opportunities for Valentine's Day. From a romantic sleigh-ride to couples spa treatments to candle-light dinner, you can treat yourself and your loved one to a fantastic getaway in the mountains.

However, February isn't just about Valentine's Day. There is also Family Day in Alberta on February 19! Family Day activities include, amongst many others, a Scavenger Hunt at Lake Louise Mountain Resort.

Through your Banff Lake Louise Holiday Card, you can access a multitude of new and timely packages for everyone in February, featuring every aspect of a memorable winter holiday. Visit to scroll through pages of exclusive offers.

Visitors can enjoy fireside dining, eclectic shopping, soothing spas, great galleries, concerts at The Banff Centre, nightlife and much more -- along with horse drawn sleigh rides, dog sledding, ice walks, snow shoeing, skating and cross-country skiing.

Lake Louise Mountain Resort, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay have all experienced early openings for various aspects of their terrain at the beginning of the winter season, with 2007 continuing to provide remarkable conditions for skiing, snowboarding and every kind of snow adventure.

There is also night skiing at Mount Norquay and evening torch-lit skiing (complete with dinner and entertainment) at Lake Louise Mountain Resort. Sunshine Inn at Sunshine Village offers Banff National Park's only on-mountain ski-in, ski-out accommodation, including a romantic gondola ride up the mountain.

Events in February in the Banff Lake Louise region include, among others, the Lake Louise Smith Optics Big Mountain Challenge at Lake Louise Mountain Resort (Feb. 21-25). Back for its fifth season, top skiers from across Canada compete for four days of extreme skiing and mental endurance in the resort's famous Powder Bowls.

As the Banff Winter Festival winds down early in February, join in the fun for the Mountain Madness Relay race, which starts atop Norquay and sees participants downhill ski, run, skate, cross-country ski and skate ski their way to the finish line.

February is the perfect time to enjoy a holiday in the Canadian Rockies!
