Snowshoe tours are offered every Sunday as well as December 24th and 31st. The tours take place from 10 am – 2 pm. If you participate, you will get to enjoy walking on top of the winter snow (instead of trudging through it). As you walk through peaceful snow covered forests, your guide will share the history of the Kananaskis Valley. You’ll learn how different species survive the cold winters.

Kananaskis Outfitters also aids winter sports enthusiasts by sponsoring several of our winter trail maps. They sponsor the Peter Lougheed Cross Country Ski Trail Map, the Kananaskis Snowshoe Trail Map, and the Ribbon Creek Cross Country Ski Trail Map. Grab a map (or access online) before you hit the trails to ensure that you know where you’re headed and how to get there. And make sure to sign up for classes if you need a confidence boost in your skiing or snowshoeing technique!
