"A great little loop, perfect for a beginner snowshoe or warming up for the coming season. The loop as defined is 4.5km. The views really are wonderful and the route is well wind sheltered with several sunny spots to stop for sustinance or scenery. "

Gear recommendation:

Snowshoes, kind of hard to snowshoe without them. Can be rented from UofC outdoor center or MEC, possibly other places. Hiking/trekking/ski poles. Warm waterproof boots. appropriate winter clothing piled on in layers so you can de-layer as required should be quick/easy drying breathable clothing(Try to avoid cotton especially jeans) Gaiters would be appropriate to keep the snow out of your boots Food and water for the day.(something hot like soup, tea, hot chocolate...granola bars freeze) I am not a guide so everyone coming should do their homework and be able to help in navigation.

Suggested car pool fare is $15.00/passenger
