While cruising down a run on skis or a snowboard is a great activity with a major fun factor, there’s also something to be said for the tranquility of snowshoeing through the silent winter trees with only the sound of the snow crunching beneath your feet. Snowshoeing was first used, more or less as a necessity of survival by our ancestors to be able to navigate the snowy terrain during the winter months (in fact it’s widely suspected our first Aboriginals in Canada used snowshoes to travel to the new land across the top of the globe from Asia), it has taken on a more recreational aspect for most these days. A terrific activity for almost all ages snowshoeing is the perfect way to get everyone outdoors and exploring the surrounding trails of Nakiska – whether it’s a family outing you’re embarking on or a romantic winter walk through the woods with your boo you can now experience it at Nakiska, enjoying all the amenities being at a ski resort offers (think a warm, delicious meal/drink after your walk or making a weekend of it by staying at the nearby Delta Lodge at Kananaskis just a few minutes away).
Starting on December 15th, we’ll be offering guided tours daily, tours will include a 2 hour snowshoe trek, rentals (including snow boots, snowshoes & poles) followed by a hot drink and cookie for each participant. Looking to venture out on your own? Bring your own snowshoes or rent them from our resort rental shop and head out on our local surrounding trails (note to snowshoe on resort boundaries you must be part of a guided tour).
