Snow Shoeing - great for families!

We are happy to be working with Revelstoke Snowshoe Company!

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 on a guided tour through beautiful trails in the sub-alpine forests of the Selkirk Mountains.

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!

Book your very own customised trip for your family, in the grounds of Glacier House Resort and surrounding area! Custom tours are also available for groups of up to 16. If you are looking for a fun team building exercise, a school curriculum based tour, a birthday party with fun games such as capture the flag, or an intense work out, we are happy to accommodate.
