Snowshoeing on Top of the World at Sunshine Village
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: PNYFLN
Experience the premier guided snowshoe adventure in Canada at world famous Sunshine Village Ski Resort 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 into a white powder paradise where there are no trails and it's simply miles and miles of powdery wilderness in front of you. You'll access the beautiful winter backcountry with one of our professional guides the way the Rockies are meant to be experienced - as a mix of fun, challenge, and learning, combined with the simple enjoyment of being outside in nature. During out trip we'll stop for a hot cocoa and cookies as we take in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Joining this trip means being prepared for unusual challenges: Days may be beautiful with sun sparkling off of fresh snow or they may be very snowy with near whiteout conditions. 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!
