Walk on Snow

Explore by snowshoe—sport stores offer rentals, and guides offer tours. Try:
Pyramid Lake Island: From Pyramid Lake Resort (closed winter) snowshoe the unplowed road to the lake. Follow the shoreline and cross the footbridge to the island. There’s interpretive panels, picnic tables and impressive Pyramid Mountain that glows red at sunset.

Maligne Lake: Snowshoe the left shoreline 1 km (.6 mi) to Mary Schäffer lookout, a sunny spot (great for a picnic) with benches, interpretive panels and the famous lake, mountain and glacier view. —Mark Horejsi
