Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies

by Andrew W. Nugara

tagged: winter sports

The Canadian Rockies in winter are nothing short of spectacular, and snowshoes provide an easy, fun and exciting way to see some of the best winter scenery Canada has to offer.

Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies describes 61 great routes for snowshoers of all levels—from beginners who have never snowshoed, to experienced backcountry travellers who are looking for new challenges. The trips extend from scenic Waterton in the far south to the breathtaking Columbia Icefield in the north section of Banff National Park. 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 day on flat terrain amid beautiful surroundings or far-reaching and magnificent views from the summit of a picturesque mountain, you will find it in this spectacular new guidebook.
