Across A Winter Wonderland
Explore forested valley's and mountain sides or traverse up frozen creeks to get a unparralled glimpse of the Canadian Rockies and her many secrets. Snowshoeing is a great adventure for everyone. All of tours take place in Kananaskis, Canmore and Banff.
Snow Shoeing is great for those looking for a true Canadian Experience and is an activity that can take you places that summer hiking can't! Walk across frozen lakes and ponds, to catch views of the mountains from uninterrupted view points.
We offer a variety of Snowshoe options from beginner to experienced.
Snowshoeing on Top of the World at Sunshine Meadows
Amazing deep powder snow - every time
True backcountry snowshoe experience
Gondola and chairlift ride to the top of Standish Mountain
Views of Mt. Assiniboine and 360 degrees around

Hot chocolate and homemade cookies
Experience Canada's premier guided snowshoe adventure in Banff National Park at world famous Sunshine Village Ski Resort where a gondola and chairlift ride takes you straight to the land above the tree line!
Put your snowshoes on and walk with us into a white powder paradise where there are no trails and it's simply miles and miles of powdery wilderness in front of you. You'll access the beautiful winter backcountry with one of our professional guides the way the Banff National Park is meant to be experienced - as a mix of fun, challenge, and learning, combined with the simple enjoyment of being outside in nature. During our snowshoe trip we'll stop for a hot cocoa and fresh baked cookies as we take in the beautiful scenery of Banff's Rocky Mountains.
Joining this trip means being prepared for unusual challenges: Days may be beautiful with sun sparkling off of fresh snow or they may be very snowy with near whiteout conditions. On the beautiful days you'll finish with memories of a sea of mountains in all directions. On days when the weather is "not so good" as we like to say, you'll head home with the sense of exhilaration and accomplishment that comes from a real experience - a real mountain winter day in Banff National Park!
