Discover what it feels like to walk on clouds by strapping on a pair of snowshoes and challenging ultra-deep snowdrifts. Be surprised at the sensation of treading lightly across deep snow. The cool stillness of the forest is broken only by the crunch of snowshoes. A light snow begins to fall, frosting the scarves and toques of your companions. The peaceful winter scene is unchanged since the early explorers traversed this very land.
This ultra-efficient way to beat the snowdrifts is a winter adventure to be enjoyed by everyone. Sign up for a tour at your resort to snowshoe high up in the Canadian Rockies. Straddle the Great Divide and get your picture taken with one snowshoe in Alberta and the other in British Columbia. Learn what made those fresh animal tracks. Hop on a helicopter and fly to the backcountry, then snowshoe to an island in a frozen lake for a gourmet lunch. Combine the urban with the outdoors and try snowshoeing in and around Edmonton or in Calgary’s Fish Creek Provincial Park. Any way you lay it down, snowshoeing will satisfy your winterlust.
