Snowshoeing is an easy way for people of all levels of fitness to explore the quiet beauty of winter in the mountains. It's also often a chance to view winter wildlife.

Prime snowshoeing is available late-December through early April, but be aware that avalanche season in the mountains extends from November to June.

Trail conditions, current closures and trail etiquette is available from Parks Canada.

Rentals and guided tours are available in town. Visit Banff Lake Louise for more information.
