Your professionally guided winter hiking/snowshoeing adventure will begin at a local coffee shop where we will review our plan for the day and sign the liability waiver. From there, we will drive approximately 1.5 hours to the trailhead. We will set off on our adventure at a comfortable/relaxed pace, hike/snowshoe for 1-2 hours, with breaks for water or a snack and then stop for lunch at a majestic alpine lake set within towering peaks. On this trip, there will be plenty of time to relax, take photos and explore the area. As a certified interpretive guide, I will teach you about the natural and cultural history of the area. When we are ready, we will make our way back to the trailhead and then back to Calgary. The trail will be approximately 8 km (5 miles) in distance (round trip) with an approximate elevation gain of 500 meters (1600 feet). This unique adventure will leave you wanting more. **Please note that I list multiple experiences and this is an issue with the AirBnB calendar (booking) system. PLEASE contact me if a date is unavailable and I will check my availability.
