Wind Sailing on Waterton Lakes
Waterton International Peace Park is a windsurfer’s dream come true. The strong winds, open lakes and Rocky Mountain scenery is nothing short of a Mecca for wind sailing enthusiasts. Waterton is famous for its “wa-was” – wind and water walls that hurtle down Upper Waterton Lake for miles creating a dark ominous wall. Given the glacial temperature of the water, all wind sailors are strongly encouraged to wear full wet or dry suits.
