Snowshoeing on Top of the World at Sunshine Village

Experience the powder-white winter wonderland of Sunshine Meadows in Banff, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a snowshoeing trek in the pristine wilderness blanketed in snow.

Start your adventure by being whisked above the treeline on the gondola and chairlift to the top of Mount Standish. Explore Sunshine Meadows, one of the most stunning alpine settings in the Canadian Rockies. Situated at an average elevation of 2,180 metres, Sunshine Meadows is surrounded by some of the highest peaks in the Rockies and straddles the Continental Divide.

Your professional guide will lead you through the picturesque winterscapes of Sunshine Meadows and onto Rock Isle Lake for prime photographic opportunities.
