Snowshoeing has been around for thousands of years. The art of snowshoeing has become more sophisticated over time – now it’s considered a winter sport. From the early wood-frame to the aluminum-frame models, snowshoeing has garnered quite a following throughout the world. Modern day snowshoeing is made up of casual snowshoers who hike trails for pleasure, the snowshoeing enthusiasts who trek through the backcountry, and the competitors who race.
Fort McMurray and the Wood Buffalo region boasts some incredible wilderness - serene, breath-taking boreal forest just waiting for the adventuring snowshoer.
