Your children have likely had to spend much of the year bored at home, hoping that at least Halloween would provide them with some fun and excitement. For guests at the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, Halloween can still be fun and spooky, while respecting social distancing and health requirements. And the best part is, it’s on Saturday this year!
Halloween in the Lodge
Some of the attractions that are planned include :
- A Halloween family movie in the ballroom on Saturday, October 31* (2 metre distancing between families)
- Special food and drink items all weekend
- A candy scavenger hunt for the kids all weekend*
- Decorations in the pond area
*for Lodge hotel guest only.
In addition, there will be activities to help burn off the sugar high.
Spooky Mountain Hikes
Visitors can book a ghost town hike through Kananaskis Outfitters or explore the spooooky Kovach Mine along the Coal MIne Trail. This hike starts in Kananaskis Village with a guide then a short drive provided by the hotel to the trailhead. Hikers will see the trail where horses used to cart the coal from the mines as well as a stunning viewpoint from which the mine scar is visible. The path back through the moonlit forest will both add to the spooky atmosphere and transport you back to a time of trudging home after a long day in the coal mines. The 5km hike has an elevation gain of only 250m and is suitable for children 10 years and older. Costumes are encouraged of course, but parents should ensure the costume does not inhibit the ability to hike. Coal miner style headlamps and spooky treats to be enjoyed along the trail will be provided.
Halloween Weekend at the Ranch
Join the festivities at the Boundary Ranch this Halloween weekend for some spooky adventures! Hit the dusty trail for the Wicked Witch’s Wagon Ride or cozy up with some hot chocolate at the Marshmallow Roast. Guests are encouraged to dress up and partake in the Trick-or-Treat Candy Hunt.
