We are happy to be working with Revelstoke Snowshoe Company again in 2016.

Snowshoeing is a great way to explore winter landscapes. One reason this activity is gaining such popularity is that it caters to a wide variety of age groups, fitness and experience levels. If you have never been snowshoeing, fear not, if you can walk you can snowshoe.

Join us for a ride on the Revelation Gondola and a guided tour through beautiful trails in the sub-alpine forests of the Selkirk Mountains.

Or why not arrange a custom guided tour just for you and your group, right from your door at Glacier House Resort? It's the perfect way to discover the winter wonderland right outside! 

Along the way our knowledgeable guides can teach you about local plant and animal species, wildlife tracking, local history, and winter survival. On the trek you can expect some spectacular views (weather permitting of course), signs of wildlife, and a whole new adventure on the snow. Great for families!

Contact us for more information, or check out the Revelstoke Snowshoe Company website.

If you prefer to explore on your own, snow shoes are available to rent from Glacier House Resort. Please see Front Desk when you arrive!
