Snowshoeing Winter Outdoor Activities

Ever wonder why northern animals like the caribou, hare and lynx have such wide feet? Strap on your snowshoes and you’ll find the answer. This ultra-efficient way to beat the snowdrifts is a winter adventure to be enjoyed by all. Straddle the Great Divide in the Canadian Rockies and get your picture taken with one snowshoe in Alberta and the other in British Columbia. Hop on a helicopter and fly to the backcountry, then snowshoe to an island on a frozen lake for a gourmet lunch. Sign up for an organized outing or make your own tracks. Just pick up your shoes and go where there’s snow.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre presents the history of one of Canada's deadliest rock slides. In the early morning hours back in 1903, millions of tons of limestone crashed from the summit of Turtle Mountain and buried a portion of the community of Frank, a once-bustling coal mining town. Through state-of-the-art interactive displays and exhibits, along with winding trails through the rocks themselves, visitors can get an up-close look at the awesome power of nature.
