Snowshoeing in the Rockies

By Linda Tancs

Banff in Alberta, Canada is the hiking capital of the Canadian Rockies, its winter trails a winter wonderland.  What could be more idyllic than exploring them in a pair of snow shoes?  One of the area’s most traditional experiences, snowshoeing season is in full swing now until late March or so.   Travel safely:  be mindful of the trails marked for cross country skiing, avoid avalanche terrain and fresh animal tracks, and watch for slippery snow.  If you’d rather not navigate on your own, guided snowshoeing (and shoe rentals) is available in Lake Louise and other locations in Banff National Park.
