Snowshoes & Winter Hikes

Explore frozen waterfalls, canyons and snow-covered forests

Winter is magical. Grab a pair of snowshoes or ice cleats and head out for an adventure.

The dry climate of the region makes it the ideal place for winter hikes. Trails like Siffleur Falls, Cline River Canyon and Crescent Falls rarely need more than ice cleats to be enjoyed all season long.

If you’re looking to try snowshoeing, trails near Nordegg like Lakeview or Shunda Meadows are often a great place to start while the Thompson Creek area offers more consistent snow coverage throughout the season.

Either way, you’ll get to experience an adventure in a winter wonderland.

Head out with a guide from one of the local tour companies or, if you prefer to head out on your own, the Nordegg Trail Society and Nordegg Adventures both share trail guides written by locals on their website.
