Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionKananaskis encompasses an area east and south of Canmore. Average driving time from Calgary is about 1.5 hours.
A variety of long alpine or semi-alpine climbs of classic quality exist in K-country along with sport climbing areas (Wasootch, Barrier Bluffs, etc...) and popular ice climbing (Evan Thomas Creek). Although Yamnuska and Kid Goat are also technically in Kananaskis, they are listed separately under Bow Valley right now. When most people say Kananaskis, they are usually referring to heading south from the trans Canada highway.
