Alberta is well known for its long drawn-out winters, and piles of snow, but that sure doesn’t stop anyone from venturing out to the great outdoors to take in the fresh crisp air. It also doesn’t stop anyone from getting out in below-zero temperatures to look out for fun. Here are two great events that prove snow is not a deterrent to fun for Albertans, nor should it be for visitors either.

Starlight Dinner

Imagine taking a chairlift ride up 7,000 feet, and sitting down for a sublime dinner at the Cliffhouse Bistro, where you'll be surrounded by the charm of mid-century modern decor and windows offering clear unobstructed views over Banff and a panoramic sighting of the majestic Mount Rundle. On February 22 and March 7, you won't have to imagine savouring a fine five-course meal coupled with refined wine pairings at this mountain-top restaurant. Your Starlight Dinner will be prepared by none other than Chef Morne, presenting an Alpine-inspired menu that will surely impress. Enjoy soft and soothing entertainment provided by Alana J. Brown while you linger by the warm fireplace along with other guests. The Cliffhouse is ready to welcome you at 6:00 pm with dinner commencing at 6:30 pm. With stunning and ethereal views, paired with divine cuisine, this will be an experience to remember!

The Hot Dogger 

The most epic ski resort party of the season, The Hot Dogger is going down on February 8th! Once you've had your fill of the Rocky Mountains, and the sun has set a glowing light on the grounds, make your way to the Lodge of Ten peaks and start dancing the night away. With DJs, adrenalin pumping entertainment, drink specials and the Kokanee Glacier Girls to keep the party vibe going all night long, you'll soon lose all track of time. Attendees must be 18 years and over with a valid ID. Ticket are $20 online or $25 at the door. Happy hour is from 9:30 - 10:30 pm, an hour you definitely don't want to miss!
