About the Book

The Canadian Rockies in winter are still nothing short of spectacular, and snowshoes provide an easy, fun and exciting way to see some of the best winter scenery Canada has to offer.

Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies – 2nd Edition describes 100+ great routes for snowshoers of all levels – from beginners who have never snowshoed, to experienced backcountry travellers who are looking for new challenges. The 61 routes described in the first edition have been augmented with 45 new routes, including trips in the Crowsnest Pass and new treks at Lake Louise. In addition, several routes have been updated with new descriptions and better photos. Alternative, safer routes up several soon-to-be-classic ascents such as Rummel Ridge and Rawson Ridge are also a new feature of this book.

The trips extend from scenic Waterton in the far south to the breathtaking Columbia Icefield in the north section of Banff National Park. Photos, maps and detailed route descriptions are provided for each trip, as well as level of difficulty, objective hazards and additional equipment requirements.

Whether you are looking for an easy day on flat terrain amid beautiful surroundings or far-reaching and magnificent views from the summit of a picturesque mountain, you will find even more of it in the second edition of this spectacular new guidebook.
