Banff National Park: Sunshine Meadows Private Snowshoe Tour

2. Banff National Park: Sunshine Meadows Private Snowshoe Tour

Experience Canada's premier guided snowshoeing adventure in Banff National Park at the world-famous Sunshine Village Ski Resort. Take a gondola and chairlift ride straight to the land above the tree line. Upon arrival at Banff, put on your snowshoes and walk with your guide and group 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 get to experience the way the Banff National Park is meant to be experienced: as a mix of fun, challenge, and learning, combined with the simple enjoyment of being outside in nature. Joining this trip means being prepared for unusual challenges: days may be ideal with the sun sparkling off fresh snow or they may be very snowy with near whiteout conditions. On these days, you'll finish with memories of a sea of mountains in all directions. On days when the weather is not so good, so to speak, you'll head home with the sense of exhilaration and accomplishment that comes from having experienced a real winter day in the mountains.
