Snowshoeing

Explore Edmonton's winter wonderland on snowshoes. Snowshoeing, a traditional mode of transportation for Canadian Aboriginals, remains one of the best and most practical ways to travel on deep snow. Snowshoeing provides transportation for exploring, bird and wildlife viewing or exercise.

Most City trails are packed down, so snowshoes perform best in areas that are more open, but off the beaten track, like Terwillegar Park.
