Alberta Winter Games

The Alberta Winter Games began as a government initiative for amateur sport, providing an opportunity for all Albertans to participate.  The first Alberta Winter Games were held in Banff in 1976; since then each of the Games have been hosted in different communities throughout the province. The Alberta Winter Games are
hosted every two years.
