Big White Snowshoe Tours

Snowshoeing Option 1

Snowshoe Tours Daily @ Big White Ski Resort.

This tour begins with a meet at the car park. To get to the car park, you go down the gondola, and just past the skating rink to our meeting spot at the Monashee van (it will be at the left side of the car park entrance).

We transport to Big White Ski Resort. Here we get fitted to new style snowshoes for our trip into the wilderness. We will explore the blanket of snow along a multitude of routes designed for each group's fitness level.

We will see various tracks scattered along our trails, evidence of the winter activity of the local wildlife. We will have a fun time challenging ourselves, figure out what animals left which tracks? Your guide will have a field guide to help with the challenge. How did you do? Your guide will let you know.

The tour is approximately 2 hours of exploring. We stop along the route for a snack. Water supplied. We then return to Happy Valley.
