Snowshoeing in Jasper, Canada

Snowshoeing is the great adventure sport equalizer. And snowshoeing in Canada’s Rocky Mountains for the first time, or any time for that matter, can change just about anybody’s life.

Historically, snowshoeing in the Rocky Mountains was just about as common as walking. It was the only way for First Nations people to travel and hunt in the harsh Canadian winter. The practice goes back millennia, as much as 8,000 years by some estimates. Now, anybody from children to seniors, even if they have never spent a single day in the snow, can enjoy a successful day snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain locations like Jasper National Park.

On Top Mountaineering: from half-day guided trips with certified experts to multi-day treks to secluded mountain cabins, the folks at On Top obviously live what they do.

The Canadian Government: Yeah, you read that right. The government will help you find a snowshoe guide and offers up some awesome tips for having a great time while snowshoeing in Jasper.

Hardcore skiers, snowboarders and climbers of all kinds still have to use snowshoes in some way or another during their adventures. It’s the only way to get to certain places in the Canadian wilderness. In many ways it is the most enjoyable and you will often find climbers and fitness freaks of all sorts out on snowshoe trails around Jasper National Park, essentially getting in a winter run.

The silence deep in the heart of Jasper National Park during the dead of winter is profound. The snow that encases the trees and mountains and pretty much everything muffles most sound and will allow you to think as clearly as you probably ever have. And there is no excuse for not seeking that adventure out in the Canadian Rockies, because there are trails that will meet the needs of anybody, of any ability. And if you listen close enough, that silence will change your life forever.
