Snowshoeing Winter Outdoor Activities

Super accessible, decidedly chill. Snowshoeing is an easy way to conquer snowdrifts and see more terrain than you could with regular snow boots. There’s zero learning curve to snowshoeing, so there’s nothing stopping you from making giant footprints. • Top shelf: Ride a chairlift up a mountain to remote snowshoe routes. Why let skiers, snowboarders and bighorn sheep have all the fun? • Good to know: Snowshoeing makes walking in winter more fun, no matter where you’re treading. A tour along a secluded wintry trail in Banff National Park is worth the effort of planning ahead. Or bring a map and make your own tracks to a frozen lake in Kananaskis Country.

Frank Slide Interpretive Centre

Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre presents the history of one of Canada's deadliest rockslides. 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.
