Winter Activities

Snowshoeing

Cypress Mountain, West Vancouver (Insight Photography photo)

Snowshoeing is one of North America's fastest-growing winter sports, and British Columbia provides the requisite trails, powder and pristine winter scenery.

Today’s snowshoes are easily manoeuvrable, lightweight and have crampons (pointy grips on the bottom to climb up or down hills), making it a simple winter sport for families seeking a fresh air activity, adventurers wanting a cardio workout, or outdoor lovers desiring snow-muffled silence.

Wander trails at a relaxed pace, pick out wildlife tracks in the snow or admire huge old-growth trees while crunching along a well-marked snowshoe loop or floating atop fresh powder. Or, go a little faster – BC is home to the Yeti, a popular snowshoe running event and Canada’s first mountain snowshoe series.

While there are many trail networks for self-guided snowshoe treks, there are also guided options. Join a snowshoe tour to explore a new area, to learn about local wildlife and history, or to enjoy an evening adventure that ends with hot chocolate or fondue.
