    Snowshoe Through Vancouver's Winter Wonderland

    We started our brief but picturesque drive high into the mountains from downtown Vancouver. After arriving at the lodge, we provide a brief equipment demonstration before setting off on our snowshoeing expedition. Slide on your snowshoes and join us as we venture into the placid splendor of an organic winter recreation area. As we travel through the forest, take in the clean, crisp winter air and feel the powder crunch underfoot. We discover throughout the journey about the rich culture of the Squamish First Nation, who have thrived in this untamed and harsh environment for hundreds of years. Our route skirts the ancient giants of the old growth forest and veers off the well-traveled trail. Savor the calm and quiet of this winter wonderland and discover a world apart from the packed ski slopes. In the snowy woodland, we take a short break and eat some food and a warming beverage, such as coffee, tea, or chocolate. Make a snow angel, a snowman, or start a snowball war to relive your carefree youth. We return to the lodge after our break by retracing our route through the forest. We return to downtown Vancouver after a brief drive, en route enjoying a breathtaking sweeping vista of the city. For all ages and skill levels, snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the magic of winter in the mountains in the simplest way possible. Basically, you can snowshoe if you can walk!
