Come on out & explore a really great place & superb deep snow in this area of Kananaskis.
We will cover approximately 300-400m elevation change on this exploratory trip.
We'll start our trip by going down into the valley north of the ski parking lot, do some exploring around that area, and come back up near the ski hill. We will meet/leave from Shouldice Arena, by the batting cages.

Although this trip is not rated as difficult, this trip is not recommended to members who have not yet snow shoed this year. I would prefer if possible to go at a moderate pace, so it would be preferable that you're in good shape. It is strongly recommended that you bring ski poles since some sections will might be steep with very deep snow.

Required Items to Bring:
- ski poles
- snowshoes
- water
- lunch
- appropriate clothing - NO JEANS
