The Banff Winter Carnival women’s ice hockey tournament was an ice hockey tournament played in Banff, Alberta, Canada. In the early years, it was contested to determine the women’s ice hockey provincial champions of Alberta. In later years, the winner would be awarded the Alpine Cup.

History[edit]

At the 1918 tournament, the Edmonton Monarchs held the distinction of being the only women’s ice hockey team at the tournament to be coached by a woman.[1] The Fernie Swastikas played their last ever game in the 1926 Tournament.[2]
