Snowshoeing on Top of the World at Sunshine Meadows
True Canadian Winter Adventure!
Experience a unique guided adventure at world famous Sunshine Village Ski Resort in the Canadian Rockies —where the Gondola and a chairlift ride takes you straight to the land above the tree line!
Put your snowshoes on and walk with us away from the ski area and into a white powder paradise! Join us on this guided adventure, and experience winter with one of our professional guides the way they like to experience it - as a mix of fun, challenge, and learning, combined with the simple enjoyment of being outside in nature. We'll stop for a hot cocoa and cookie. You'll find that this trip is less like a guided tour and more like going out with friends and exploring the world around you.
Joining this trip means being prepared for unusual challenges: Days may be sunny with snow sparkling off of fresh snow or they may very snowy and we'll be walking in near whiteout conditions trying to keep the wind from tearing our hats off! No matter what, every day is a great adventure. On the beautiful days you'll finish with memories of a sea of mountains in all directions. On days when the weather is "not so good" as we like to say, you'll head home with the sense of exhilaration and accomplishment that comes from a real experience - a real mountain winter day!
