A new rebate program is available for the purchase of urban crampons – known by the brand name Yaktrax.
The rebate is for $20 for residents who buy the traction devices, with about 100 pairs supported. Rebates will come from Banff’s Environmental Reserve, which is funded by franchise fees from utility companies. This fund also supports the studded tire rebate program, which still has revenue available.
The snow and ice walking aid rebate program and the studded tire rebate program will close on April 30, 2020.
Rebate information and application forms are available at https://banff.ca/701/Residential-Environmental-Rebates
