Nestled amongst the peaks of the Canadian Rockies, Banff is known as an adventurer’s mecca. Whether by car, bike, foot, snowshoes, or skis, in Banff National Park you can enjoy year-round discovery. As the first national park in Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, what makes the Park so special is its unique combination of unspoiled wilderness, glacier-fed mountain lakes, and quaint villages, like the town of Banff.
Banff offers a choice of accommodations, restaurants, boutiques, and activities to make your trip a memorable one.
The AWLS course is being held at The Fendlands, Banff Recreation Centre and is a state-of-art facility located at 100 Norquay Road in the Town of Banff. Renovated and re-opened in November 2010 to LEED standards, this recreation hub is home to hockey, curling, and conferences in Banff.
