There’s nothing more Canadian than skating free on a frozen lake… especially when that lake is located in what is arguably the country’s most beautiful landscape: The Rocky Mountains.

Two Jack Lake, located just outside of Banff, Alberta, has frozen over to create the most picture perfect wintery scene that we’ve ever witnessed (rivalled only by this frozen waterfall in the same Rocky Mountain region).

With clear, blue ice beneath your skates and the stunning sights of the Rockies all around you, going for a romantic skate or a quick game of puck on this sheet is what Canadian dreams are made of.

Here are some of our favourite shots of the wintery paradise that is Two Jack Lake:
