The top five places to go snowshoeing

Jan 10, 2019

Winter in Canada is what you make of it. There's no doubt about it, it’s cold. The secret to beating the cold is to keep moving. When the snow is too deep to walk in, it’s time to strap on a pair of snowshoes and trek on! Timbercreek Communities has rounded up the top five places to go snowshoeing in Canada.

Alberta

There's no shortage of snowshoe hotspots in Alberta. In Edmonton, you can head to Terwillegar Park, if you don’t have much time to travel. Just outside of the city, at Elk Island National Park, you can explore some world-class space and tons of fresh snow. The Amisk Wuche and Lakeview trails are not to be missed.

In Calgary, in addition to city parks and golf courses, you can head to Bow Habitat Station in the southeast area of the city. Explore the Pearce Estate Park’s Interpretive Wetlands on site. Best of all, they offer snowshoe rentals, so it’s a great way to get into the sport, without spending a bundle.

Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan is home to some great snowshoeing. In Saskatoon, there are several spots along the banks of the Meewasin, and most golf courses provide a convenient and open space as well. If you’re willing to travel a little outside of the city, your options open up even more. Little Red River Park in Prince Albert offers some beautiful scenery, including aspen and jackpine woods, in its 1200 acres. There are designated snowshoe trails which are also dog-friendly.

Manitoba

There are lots of great trails to explore in Manitoba. There are over 850 public parks in Winnipeg alone! A short drive north of Winnipeg will lead you to Birds Hill Provincial Park. This is one of the few spots in the province that provides designated snowshoe trails -- no more competing with cross-country skiers!

Québec

The Québec City Area is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true! There are hundreds of kilometres of marked trails to enjoy and explore. Vallée Bras-du-Nord, alone, offers over 80 kilometres of marked trails, including some with cozy cabins and yurts to camp in.

Timbercreek hopes this post helps you enjoy every step you take this winter.
