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.
