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.
