Winter is king amid the peaks of Banff National Park. With an average annual snowfall of over 3m, this area is superb for trying this ancient and efficient mode of travel. If you can walk, you can snowshoe! After gearing up and being briefed on the basics, we will venture into the forest and look for signs of creatures that have adapted to the harsh winter conditions. Learn how to read the tracks of different animals. Snowshoes and poles included.
