Wintertime Activities: January Specials at the Chiniki Cultural Centre

Winter is a beautiful time to head into the Rocky Mountains. Despite all the outdoor activities you can do, we know that it is always nice to find a place indoors to warm up, and take a relaxing break in between these excursions.

With activities happening in January both in our Centre and nearby area, we wholeheartedly agree that this is the best time to visit the Chiniki Cultural Centre. We offer multiple possibilities for things to see, do and eat, and below are the three things we’re most excited about this month.

National Ski & Snowboard Day

January 27 is CIBC National Ski & Snowboard Day, where Canadians nationwide are encouraged to head outside, enjoy the majestic landscapes, and celebrate these delightful winter snow sports.

To make this day even better, Nakiska Ski Resort in Kananaskis is offering 50% off their ski lift tickets for the day. We can’t think of a better way to end your day on the ski slopes than with a hearty meal at Stones Restaurant on your way home!

Meet our Elders

On January 13 and 20, we’re offering our guests a special opportunity to speak with our Elders from 11am to 2pm. Come visit our Centre, have a cup of tea, and hear about their stories and perspectives that they share with us. You can also tour our exhibits and cultural displays, and ask questions relating to our history, and way of life.

Complimentary Mint Tea, Bannock and Jam, will be included with your admission to the Cultural Exhibits during our event.

All Day Breakfast, Everyday

Stones Restaurant has a small secret – we actually serve all day breakfast.

Just ask one of our servers, and we’ll be happy to dish up a platter of two Eggs prepared any style, Bannock with Jam, Boar Bacon, Pan-Fried Seasoned Baby Potatoes, and Mixed Greens with Balsamic Vinaigrette.

In addition, on weekends we offer our brunch menu from 10am to 2pm – serving up even more delicious treats such as French Toast and Eggs Benedict. Yum!
