by Andrew W. Nugara

tagged: winter sports, western provinces

Following the success of his first snowshoeing guide, Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies (RMB, 2011), Andrew Nugara has now written the ultimate guide for those finding themselves on snowshoes for the first time.

A Beginner’s Guide to Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies describes over 40 great routes for new snowshoers. The trips extend from scenic Waterton in the far south to the breathtaking Columbia Icefield in the north section of Banff National Park. Stunning colour photos, maps and detailed route descriptions are provided for each trip, as well as level of difficulty, objective hazards and additional equipment requirements.

Whether you are looking for an easy, introductory day on flat terrain amid beautiful surroundings or something slightly more challenging, you will find it in this new guidebook.
