What’s the weather like in Banff in February?Although not quite as cold as December and January, the Banff weather in February is still very crisp with temperatures just below freezing. This world famous ski resort in Canada’s Rocky Mountains has lots of winter sunshine during the day, but you’ll need a good log fire in the evenings as temperatures can fall to -10°C or lower.
Geographical influencesThere’s usually less snowfall during February than the previous two months, but the conditions can change quickly in the Rockies from sunny weather to heavy snow. The surrounding hills of Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain help to create cold air and stop temperatures rising. The higher you travel the colder the temperatures will be.
AveragesWrap up warm and pack all the right snow gear, because the weather in Banff in February is perfect for snow sports fans. The daytime high temperature will be about -1°C, but you can expect this to be several degrees colder most days. The wind speed will be about 7mph, which creates a slight wind chill factor too. The night time temperature could drop to -10°C, so get your cabin log fire burning! Bring your sunglasses for relaxing and exploring around the mountains. The sun shines for four hours on average from ten hours of daylight. About nine days will have some rainfall, with much of this wintery and leaving fresh snow on the mountains.
