Snowshoeing in Canmore

Apr 04th 2013

Snowshoes may not be the necessity that they once were for Canadians, but snowshoeing is still an outdoor activity that everyone should experience. It’s an excellent form of exercise that both children and the young at heart can enjoy.

Many people think of snowshoes as a traditional tool used by trappers to get from point A to point B, envisioning old tennis rackets attached to the bottoms of boots. But with a sleek new look, modern day snowshoes are a piece of sporting equipment aimed at helping outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking through a foot of snow.
For those who love the winter outdoors but aren’t inclined to ski, this is a cost effective sport that requires no skill. If you can walk, you can snowshoe!

If it’s your first time snowshoeing or if you prefer the group atmosphere, there are several tour guide operators in the Banff/Canmore/Kananaskis area. The snowshoe season is generally from December to late March, but is completely snow dependent. Be sure to check with local operators and avoid trails that are groomed for skiing.

So give it a try, while their is still snow! Now is the perfect time to strap on a pair and try out this Canadian winter tradition.
