The sheer number of parks, resorts, and wilderness areas in British Columbia makes snowshoeing a winter favourite for beginners and experienced snowshoers alike.
Guided snowshoe tours are a great way to spot wildlife tracks and learn about the fascinating ecological system beneath the snowpack. Near Vancouver, the North Shore Mountains combine outstanding views with an easy-to-reach, welcoming natural environment. Walk along well-maintained trails and enjoy the views of city, ocean, and mountains.
Provincial and national parks offer excellent snowshoeing opportunities. Strathcona Provincial Park near Mount Washington is a winter playground. Garibaldi Provincial Park offers superb backcountry trails and terrain, and an overnight hut for multi-day trips.
